Nail the Scandinavian Trend with These Dining Chairs

31st July 2018

The Scandinavian interior design trend

It's pretty obvious and we don't really need to say it. But the Scandinavian interior trend has literally taken over the world in the past few years. Whether you're scrolling down your Instagram feed, browsing Pinterest or popping out to your local homeware store, you're likely to see a whole range of products that fit this style. Let's be clear, we're not complaining. Here at Lakeland Furniture, we absolutely love this trend and we welcome it with open arms! To sum it up in a few words, the Scandinavian style is clean, simple and comfortable. Neat lines, neutral colours and modern accessories are everywhere. But don't take our word for it. To get a feel for this iconic style, take a look at one of our favourite Pinterest boards:

How do I introduce this style into my home?

First things first, you must consider how much money you want to spend and how much of an impact you want to make. Essentially, you can add a Scandi touch to any room with a few carefully-considered accessories - without breaking the bank. Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • Modern prints in simple frames
  • Houseplants
  • Crisp, white bedding and pillows
  • Neutral-coloured throws and blankets
  • Exposed bulb lighting
  • Geometric-style baskets and holders
  • Industrial desk lamps
  • Candles

We could go on and on. Really, we could. But the main purpose of today's blog post is to show you some bigger pieces that can totally transform the look of your home. Once you've added in some smaller accessories and you really get a feel for the Scandi style, you might be considering changing up your furniture. For a little inspiration, we've rounded up a few of our favourite dining chairs that just scream Scandinavian chic! The dining room is the hub of the family home after all and it's so easy to switch it up.

The Halmstad dining chairs

If simplicity and comfort is your thing but you don't like to compromise on style, the Halmstad dining chairs will be right up your street. In a variety of colours, these pieces combine a comfortable fabric seat with elegant wooden legs. These chairs really are the ultimate addition to any dining room belonging to someone who loves the Scandinavian style but wants to put their own spin on it. Choose between green, brown, blue and white for a unique take on Scandi cool.

The Stockholm dining chairs

Switching things up a bit but keeping a running theme, these fabric dining chairs from the Stockholm range are absolutely stunning. The cut-out back and high armrest design features are totally unique to Lakeland Furniture and that's why we love them. We hope you do too. With a whole range of neutral colours to pick from, there also some wild cards like a sky blue and lime green. So, it really depends on how crazy you want to go! For thing's for certain, however, you're sure to impress with these beautiful chairs for your dining room.

The Bergen dining chairs

Calling all lovers of true Nordic style, you'll love our Bergen dining chairs. The combination of plastic seat, metal rods and beech legs is so aesthetically pleasing - we're not surprised this style of chair is one of the most popular on Pinterest and across interior blogs. Named aptly after the Norway city, we didn't think it was write to do a Scandi inspo post without showing off these bad boys. The best thing about them? They're available in a massive range of colours, not just the lovely neutral shades you see above. We're talking blue, green, yellow, red, purple... the whole rainbow, pretty much! Which one will you choose?
