Nordic Living celebrates the impact that Scandinavian culture, specifically the Nordic concept of hygge, has had internationally on art, design, fashion, food, and interiors, while seeking out the creatives and tastemakers who are bringing this covetable lifestyle to the general public.
The book is divided into five themed chapters: Art and Artists, Design, Food and Drink, Fashion, and Travel. These feature interviews with designers, artisans, restaurateurs, and bloggers, who share their insider knowledge on the products, brands, trends, and locations that embody hygge. Finally, a practical reference section presents the best sources of hygge and the top places to fully embrace the hygge lifestyle.
Including profiles of more than 100 designers, this book is essential reading for the young and stylish, and anyone for whom Scandinavian living is a dream and aspiration.
