Scandinavian LIVING

When it comes to “Scandi” style, simplicity and functionality rule

I Edited by Linda Delaney The Lloyd dining table from FANULI is made in Australia and comes in a variety of standard sizes. It can also be made to size on request. Available in wenge, oak and spotted gum timbers. fanuli.com.au

was recently asked to refurbish a Sydney residence in the Scandinavian style, or “Scandi” as it’s more commonly known. One of the owners is Norwegian so I looked at Scandinavian design in its purest form and adapted it to our Australian way of living Scandi is characterised by simplicity and functionality and usually entails creating light and airy spaces. It’s not quite minimalist but it’s definitely uncluttered, with decorative details and materials often relating to natural elements. Timber is usually used on floors, in joinery and in furniture to provide warmth to white or pale walls. Bold colours can still be brought in but they act as accents rather than heavy features. There are many prominent Scandinavian design and retail companies that sell their wares in Australia. These are some of my favourite pieces.
