Tap­ping into the Dan­ish life­style, we’re bring­ing the con­cept of hygge to your home

In 2019, we’re tak­ing a cue from the Danes’ way of liv­ing by bring­ing a touch of hygge (pro­nounced hue-guh) into our homes. Rooted in a sense of well-be­ing, con­nec­tion and growth, prac­tis­ing hygge will set you up for a good year ahead

TAKE A SEATPair­ing well with the 70/70 Ta­ble, the Vern dining chair in the hue VelourLux Vin­tage Rosa (R2 999) from So­fa­com­ is not only el­e­gant, but also a reflection of the con­cept of hygge by chan­nelling the light and warm colour palette of­ten as­so­ci­ated with Dan­ish de­sign. Shop on­line at­fa­com­ or visit their store in Cape Town.

LET’S DINEThe epit­ome of mod­ern Scandi de­sign, the sim­plis­tic 70/70 Ta­ble by Mu­uto (R26 000) is ideal for those lazy Sun­day fam­ily lunches that bring a week of hap­pi­ness. Avail­able through Créma De­sign, the 70/70 Ta­ble comes in three sizes: ex­tra-large (255 x 108 x 73cm), large (225 x 90 x 73cm) and small (170 x 85 x 73cm). Visit the Créma De­sign store in Cape Town or head over to cre­made­ for more info.

FRA­GRANT FEELSWith our warm weather, a glow­ing fire­place is def­i­nitely not needed. For­tu­nately, you can still achieve an equally as invit­ing feel with an aro­matic fra­grance. The Aroma Rock Room Dif­fuser (a Hi­malayan rock on a con­crete base with es­sen­tial oils) from lo­cal brand Sas­sui will do the trick. Re­tail­ing at R475, it is avail­able in three dif­fer­ent aro­mas (Sum­mer, Herb Gar­den and Ro­mance/ Love). Shop at sas­
