Designing with Hygge: How to Incorporate Nordic Comfort into Your Home

The concept of 'Hygge,' a Danish term that loosely translates to 'cosiness,' has permeated the world of interior design, evoking images of warmth, contentment, and well-being. Explore how to infuse this Nordic philosophy into your home with skönt’s curated range of furniture and accessories.

Understanding Hygge

The essence of Hygge lies not in materialism, but in the creation and appreciation of comforting, tranquil moments. In the context of home interiors, it encapsulates a warm, inviting ambiance, a design that promotes togetherness, and décor that fosters a sense of well-being.

Creating Your Hygge Home with skönt

In your quest for a Hygge home, your furniture choices play a vital role. Nordic furniture, known for its simplicity, functionality, and use of natural materials, is the perfect choice for creating a Hygge environment.


  1. Comfortable Seating: Comfort is king in a Hygge home. Our Eilert Chair epitomises this principle. With its plush leather upholstery and ergonomic design, it provides the perfect spot to curl up with a good book.
  2. Warm Lighting: Soft, warm lighting is essential for creating a Hygge atmosphere. Our Sigge Light offers a stylish design with a soft, diffused light that can transform any space into a cosy haven.
  3. Natural Materials: Incorporating natural elements is a key aspect of Hygge. The Märeta Bar Stool crafted from sustainably sourced walnut, adds an earthy, natural element to your kitchen while promoting communal dining, a core aspect of Hygge living.
  4. Soft Textiles: Soft, cozy textiles contribute to a sense of warmth and comfort. Our Ragnor Throw is the perfect accessory to drape over your Eilert Chair or to keep handy for those chilly evenings.

The Hygge Lifestyle and Accessories

Beyond furniture, embracing Hygge involves incorporating smaller elements and practices into your daily life. This could include ornaments like our Odin's Faces Sculpture to create a soothing atmosphere, or serving hot drinks in our Ragnar Mug to warm up a rainy day.


Incorporating Hygge into your home isn't about a complete overhaul of your interiors, but about making mindful choices that enhance the comfort and cosiness of your spaces. By integrating warm lighting, comfortable seating, natural elements, and soft textiles, you can create a haven of tranquillity and contentment.

Investing in pieces like our Eilert Chair, Märeta Bar Stool, or Sigge Light allows you to bring a piece of the Hygge lifestyle into your home. So, remember that Hygge is not just about the physical items but also about appreciating the calming, cosy moments at home.
