Artisan homewares from Scandinavia

Artisan homewares from Scandinavia

August 29, 2016 0 By Nordic House

Following on from my previous post, today I’d like to share with you even more of our wonderful handmade pieces. This is a real mix of items, from accessories to furniture, but each and every one has been made by hand with incredible attention to detail, and will add something special to your home. At Nordic House we appreciate there’s a need for furniture produced on a larger scale, but we also feel it’s important to include items that have been made by independent designers too, to keep craftsmanship skills alive and thriving.

Living in Cornwall, we’re surrounded by wonderful artists and designers, and their work inspires us every day! In keeping with our environment at home, we strive to offer our customers a taste of this by bringing home the best that skilled craftsmen across Scandinavia produce. With a focus on natural materials, interesting textures and unique finishing touches, this is just a selection of some of our most unusual pieces. They’re all available now – we hope you like them!


The natural seat is hand woven and the legs are made from teak root. Each stool is unique because it is handmade from natural materials. An elegant and functional stool for your home.


Hand-crafted, this stylish toilet roll holder combines a hand-woven water hyacinth rattan basket exterior with a removable wooden toilet roll holder in the top. Simply take it out of the basket, load it up and drop it back in again! An innovative way to store your spare toilet rolls, making them instantly accessible.


Add a touch of Nordic log cabin to your decor with our natural goatskin stool from Sweden. The rustic wooden legs are topped off with a beautifully soft goatskin hide seat. This gorgeous handcrafted piece is truly covetable!


Complementing the goatskin stool is our wonderful goatskin bench. This would look wonderful in a hallway or on a landing, and will prove extremely usable too.


Combining beautiful natural raw materials, this tapas board is full of Scandinavian chic. The board itself is hand-made from reclaimed teak and the small containers are marble, perfect for olive tapenade, pesto and hummus. A visual delight and a stylish gift for any foodie lover!


These beautiful felt and leather baskets have been created by a Danish designer who’s passionate about designing everyday objects with a sense of nostalgia and function, for the modern era. Already an absolute favourite here at HQ, these baskets can be used in the kitchen or bathroom alike.


Also made from felt and by the same designer are these beautiful placemats. A truly stunning contemporary finish to any dining table!


Brighten up any wall with these gorgeous soft grey handcrafted Scandinavian wall hangers. Part of our Scandinavian designer range, they are made from beautiful birch wood and hand-felted merino wool. Available in four colours – for a colourful, playful look mix and match the colours on the wall.


Also part of our Scandinavian designer range, our beech wood hangers are hand-finished with a smooth white paint. Perfect for hanging clothes and accessories. Available in three colours – we love them all!

Each one of these products is truly unique and we believe you won’t find anything quite like them on the UK high street.
