Yes, we’re obsessed with Scandi-noir, Becksondergaard scarves and building our own furniture from flat-pack, but there’s another Scandinavian thrill on the way to literally light up our lives in the form of Skandinavisk Candles. Apparently, Scandinavia burns the most candles of any nation in the world – who knew?
So, just when you thought you’d got the names of your pillowcases (Dvala) and book cases (Liatorp) from Ikea sorted out, you’ve got a new set to learn. Meet Hygge, Hav, Sno, Sommar, Kobenhaven, Skog, Ro and Fjord. Skandinavisk Candles are created, in fact, by two Englishmen, now living in Scandinavia – the range has been picked up by John Lewis (from autumn) so fresh, Nordic scented homes for us! Actually, you can get them already here in selected boutiques (try this one HERE) if you can’t wait for John Lewis.
Speaking of Becksondergaard scarves and John Lewis… there’s a whole selection of them in the sale (the one shown is £12.50!) HERE.
