We simply love Scandinavian design, and this is why we want to share it – worldwide! It all started in 2003 in Kalmar, a small coastal city in south-east Sweden, with a passion for Scandi-style and design, and a vision to make it accessible around the world, regardless of location. What started as a web-shop in Swedish and English is now available in nine languages (and counting!).
Today we are proud to have created a platform that allows us to share our passion for beautiful interior. As a leading destination for design enthusiasts around the world, we offer an extensive assortment from renowned brands, both classic and contemporary, that encapsulates the very best of Scandinavian home design. We work with over 200 renowned Scandinavian brands including Arabia, Rörstrand, Ferm Living, Georg Jensen, Marimekko and String furniture.
A big part of Scandinavian culture is based around nature. Life in the north has been, and still is today, very much shaped by the combination of the harshness and beauty of the Nordic nature, and this is eminently reflected in the design. Scandinavian design, and interior design in particular, is often said to be synonymous with good taste, quality and the humble Scandinavian way of life. And in our assortment, we capture just that.
The company was founded in 2002 by the Swedish entrepreneur Jörgen Bödmar. With a background in the airline industry, he decided to venture into new territory by starting out in e-commerce. His platforms www.designonline.se and www.scandinaviandesigncenter.com were ready for business by 2003. Today the same shop is found at www.nordicnest.com.
With carefully selected brands, designers and products, we have created an assortment of the big classics, the daring up-and-coming designers, the quirky, the bold and the beautiful. Whether you are looking for the true classics, such as Georg Jensen, Arne Jacobsen and Alvar Aalto, or the fun and bold, such as Marimekko and House Doctor, you have come to the right place.
We offer design for every room of the house. In our Kitchen & Dining section, you will find porcelain for every occasion, including Scandinavian all-time favourites such as, Swedish Grace Porcelain by Rörstrand, Glassware by Iittala, Pots and Pans by Eva Solo & Fiskars as well as elegant dinner classics by Orrefors. In our Home Accessories section you will find decoration for any room! We offer a wide selection of Candle Holders, Pots & Vases, Storage options, Clocks and interior design for bathrooms. Bed linen, Cushions & Pillows, Curtains and Fabrics can be found in our Fabrics & Textiles section. Oh, and don’t forget to explore our Lamps and Pendants - Scandinavia is famous for creating beautiful lighting! Historically this may have been out of necessity (in some parts of northern Scandinavia, the sun makes no appearance at all during the depth of winter), but today beautiful lighting is used to enhance interior design or to make a real statement.
