5 Essentials of Nordic Design

If you are tired of wintry table setups with lots of sparkles, and looking to begin the spring season with something less overwhelming to the eyes, you can never go wrong with Nordic style presentations. Besides, with so many Scandinavia-inspired products in our online store, assembling such a setup is a no-brainer. To prove this point and help you deck out a tablescape which will make a splash at your next event, we’ve got you covered with these five essentials of Scandinavian design.

Simplicity & Functionality

Simplicity and functionality are the main principles of Scandinavian design. Thus, if you are looking to create that restrained yet cozy Nordic ambiance, you should turn to natural, high-quality materials, which are durable and universal enough to be used over and over again. When choosing fabric accessories for your tabletop, you should give preference to natural and versatile materials, like cotton, jute, and wool, over satin, organza, taffeta, velvet, and other fabrics, which are fabulously popular with event planners. Yes, in terms of Scandinavian philosophy of design a white 100% cotton tablecloth or denim runner spread over a table are more preferable that sequin linens. In terms of patterns, you also should stick to the principle of simplicity – opt for basic patterns (stripes, checks, or polka dots) over detailed, cluttered designs.

Greenery

Since Scandinavians always strive to take the outdoors in, greenery is a common element of Nordic setups. Still, lush bouquets, vertical gardens, and arches styled with cascading greenery should be avoided if you want to decorate within this philosophy of design. Instead, whenever your tabletop needs a pop of green, you can brighten it up by spreading a single greenery chain from our online store. In case you want to freshen up your neutral-colored napkins, feel free to fashion them with a branch of eucalyptus or a seasonal single stem. Replace a traditional vase full of lush blossoms with mismatched vintage bottles with fern branches or display your favorite single stems in our wrought-iron flower pots.

Clean Lines

You probably have noticed that Nordic setups look clean and uncluttered. For the most part, this effect is achieved through neat, geometric shapes. With that being said, when looking for candle holders for your luminaries, it’s strongly recommended to avoid heavy candelabra and candle holders with lots of details – instead, consider our freshly arrived gold or rose gold candle holders, which can be used for both tabletops and backdrops. Meanwhile, if you are looking for something airy and lightweight, our globe style candle holders must be taken into consideration – feel free to use them for your candles or flip them over to transform them into miniature vases for seasonal blossoms. Last but not least, try to avoid using multiple details – remember that Scandinavian design is about paring things down.

Wood

Due to the abundance of forests in Scandinavian countries, rustic wooden furniture and flooring are quite common in Nordic interiors. To this effect, incorporating some wooden accessories will add that signature, Nordic feel to your partyscape. If you don’t have a massive table, don’t fret – at tableclothsfactory, you’ll discover tons of wooden pieces. For example, instead of charger plates or cake stands, you can use our rustic wood slices. Your tealights will pair beautifully with our wood stump candle holders and wooden chips. At the same time, our succulents in grained wood pots will add some texture to your setup.

White

When assembling a Scandinavian tablescape, try to make the most of the daylight. In terms of colors, this means that you have to go for whites, which will make your tabletop shine even on a cloudy day. Besides white linens and dinnerware, you can also incorporate the color white through additional accessories. If you don’t want them to blend in with their surroundings, you can take white marble into consideration. For example, if there’s still no greenery on your table, feel free to use our marbleized flower pots for our succulents. Are you planning to send your guests away with a gift? Your favors can double as table décor if you put them into our marbleized favor boxes – there’s no doubt that marble will add depth and dimension into your setup.

Setting up a Scandinavian theme is easier than it seems – “less is more” is all you need to take into account when choosing accessories for your tabletop. Simplicity paired with quality and unity with nature is what makes Nordic design so popular these days. But since opinions differ, we can’t wait to know what you think about Scandinavian style and what is your own way of weaving it into your décor – please share your thoughts and ideas with us in the comments below!
