A MODERN BLOG FOR THE MIDCENTURY ENTHUSIAST
Scandinavian Furniture Design
After many years of refurbishing and reupholstering furniture in our full-service upholstery shop, the clean lines and quality build of Scandinavian furniture design has greatly influenced the vision for our own exclusive Classic Collection furniture.
We build our Scandinavian style furniture with time-tested methods. All of our internal framing is made from premium sustainable and solid kiln-dried hardwood. This is something you won't find with most new Scandinavian style furniture. All of our pieces are precisely joined by glue, dominoes, and pocket screws - then sanded and smoothed of sharp edges. Our bases are built using a single 4/8 slab of Arizona White oak, ensuring that you have an even and deep wood grain. They are then tightly joined with thick dominoes and glue.
Our seats and backs are tight woven with high quality Eco-friendly jute web, which provides a seat that is comfortable and ergonomic. This is achieved without the sinking and slouching that can happen with traditional box spring designs.
Our textural, durable tweed alongside the warmth of our hard oak bases and arm plates are commonly inspired by nature and the Nordic climate - Producing our Nordic-inspired colors of Oatmeal, Bright Blue and Gray. However, in some homes, brighter modern pops of colors are preferred, like our Mustard Seed, Rust Orange, and Teal Green.
In the tradition of the great Scandinavian furniture design pioneers, we prefer a minimalistic, clean design with an attention to detail. All of our furniture is built using quality materials by master craftsmen in a small workshop. All of our furniture is personally handcrafted by our owners, Ted & John Lewis. No outsourcing or cheap labor here. Made proudly in the USA, using only the best time-tested construction methods!
