Scandi-Welsh Style

Nidum, Bubo and Sto by Pip Jay King

The Euro 2016 football tournament might be over, but the buzz surrounding Wales, the surprise package of the tournament, lingers on.  Could furniture from Wales be the next surprise discovery?  Welsh designer Pip Jay King certainly seems to think so, even though her design influence is distinctly Scandinavian.

Nidum, for instance, is a set of curvaceous wooden side tables which interlock and hug each other; the slick simplicity of the structure in wonderful contrast with the playfulness of the design.  The perfect companion to Nidum is Bubo, a highly abstracted wooden owl's head, flocks of which will no doubt invade mantelpieces up and down the country soon.  The Sto gentleman's valet stand is equally elegant, its steam-bent ash arms rising from the stool base like trees in an enchanted forest.

These clean, sleek and modern designs might betray more of Pip Jay King's Nordic obsession than her Welsh heritage, but we certainly won't hold that against her. 

Pip Jay King is a graduate of the National School of Furniture at Bucks New University.  Nidum, Bubo and Sto are part of her graduation project.

Natural Style

Product Inspiration

The simple, clean lines of Scandi-style furniture works well in most contemporary design schemes.  Put together the Kuskoa chair from Alki with the Turning table from Menu and the Lake rug from Golran to create a setting which is sleek, modern and uplifting.

 
 

For lighting in a modern natural style look no further than LZF.  They specialise in lights made from natural wood veneers in a range of styles, from the sculptural (such as the Swirl suspension light), to the sleek and simple (Hi-Collar wall light) and exuberantly flamboyant (Candelabro suspension light).

 
 

We love accessories which showcase the beauty of wood, such as the Scrapwood wallpaper from NLXL, the iPhone cases from Wood'd and the Smokestack outdoor fireplace from Frederik Roije.
