Bring Hygge into the new year with Røros Tweed and these other companies.

You know that moment when your home is clean and quiet and you’re wearing your cozy socks and there’s no place in the world you’d rather be? That, my friends, is Hygge, the state of being cozy and perfectly content. Coined by the Danish, Hygge has snuggled its way into interiors from Hoboken to Honolulu. And it’s not hard to see what all the fuss is about. Soft, lived-in fabrics; warm, glowing light; simple, classic lines—theses are the things dreams are made of.

The best thing about Hygge? It’s in the eye, er perception, of the beholder. If you feel Hygge, you’re there, baby. Help your customers get there with these relaxing home accents that will keep them feeling comfortable and your showroom looking homey.

Jericho reclining chair accent furniture from ArteriorsJericho Reclining Chair — Arteriors

Perfect for lounging with some hot cocoa by a crackling fire, the Jericho reclining chair from Arteriors has big happy place potential. The comfy teak and jute seat features an endearing juxtaposition of contemporary lines and natural hand-woven fibers.

Adjust the grooves on each arm until the incline is just right, cover up with a soft throw and wait for the Hygge set in. It won’t be long. 



Dimple Lamp from Anna KarlinDimple Lamp — Anna Karlin

Take it from the North, when winter is coming, it’s time to hunker down with “good things and good people.” With her Dimple lamp, artist Anna Karlin uses glass, metal and marble to explore a similar concept of support and dependency.

Coming together may be quite the process, but the resulting glow from the design’s opaque egg-shaped glass makes it at least appear to be seamless. 



Bergstaden from Røros Tweed Bergstaden — Røros Tweed

Like it’s brother to the south, Norway knows how to do cozy. The Bergstaden throw created by GLiCK design group for Røros Tweed portrays a pixelated version of Røros itself, a picturesque Norwegian mining town. (The entire place is an UNESCO World Heritage Site.)

Like the traditional wooden houses that residents live in to this day, the muted color palette on this beige/blue version is straight up swoon worthy. 


Black and Natural striped rug from Loom GoodsBlack and natural striped rug — Loom Goods

Loom Goods creators Karyn Blosil and Ashly Lark are on a mission to bring comfort and simplicity (hello, Hygge) to homes across the country. And we say, “Sign us up!” Fresh and modern yet arguably traditional, this black and natural striped rug feels homey and broken-in with its faded finish and slightly frayed edge.

Lay it in the kitchen, at the foot of the bed, in front of a crackling fire or wherever you need coziness underfoot. 


Pillow from Hart MadePillow — Hart Made

One-of-a-kind pillows from Hart Made are so Hygge it hurts. Company founder Jamie Israelow uses native plants to dye the fibers she weaves into nature-inspired, patterned textiles on her floor loom. Tranquil and authentic, Hart Made’s plush cushions are the perfect fit for any Scandi-style sanctuary.

Up the cozy factor by styling them in pairs or groups of three. The more Hygge the better.
