ADD A LITTLE ‘HYGGE’ TO YOUR HOME THIS WINTER

susanne sigenlaubComment

The long dark winter months in Scandinavia are well known, but what is less known is some of the methods they use to get through them.

A simple Danish word – ‘hygge’ basically translating to ‘cozy’ describes one of the most charming ways the Scandinavians tackle the winter. Walk through the city of Copenhagen, drive through a quiet country village, sit in a restaurant or go into any home and you will always see the pure burning light of candles.

Candles are used everyday and everywhere. The result is the amazing variety of candlesticks that can be seen from high style ormolu and marble, graceful brass silver or pewter, simple burl root woods or ultra modern models.

We always find ourselves drawn to collecting candlesticks or candelabras and the warmth and elegance they can add to any interior.
