Pieces of Nordic Happiness

&Tradition | Sofas | Edward van Vliet

&Tradition (AndTradition), previously known as Unique Copenhagen, is a Danish company, synonym of Nordic heritage in contemporary design. By changing its name, the company’s goal is to emphasize its way of combining solid handicraft with modern design, and Nordic tradition with high quality. &Tradition works with both emerging and established designers and is renowned for producing some of Verner Panton’s and Arne Jacobsen’s most celebrated designs.

Craft meets art. Function meets form. Material meets potential. This is the Nordic tradition and heritage. &Tradition aims to bridge these values to contemporary design, reshaping, redefining and reinventing materials, techniques and forms. &Tradition utilizes and combines new materials, uncovers new techniques and breaks boundaries in manufacturing.

The Danish company wants to challenge the limits of function, form and materials. The collection of &Tradition not only covers iconic designs and undiscovered gems from the masters of yesterday, but also features new works from the leading designers of today and from the talents of tomorrow, those talents who may create the classics of the future. &Tradition scouts for design talent beyond borders and handpicks production facilities that will provide the finest quality, wherever they are.

&Tradition markets its collection through an international network, but their roots are still Nordic and tradition is still a part of their identity. &Tradition believes in design that is made to last from sustainable production, and respects nature that provides the raw materials.

Choose a perfect sofa in the Scandinavian style

A sofa is one of the most important pieces of furniture in the home. Sofas and couches invite you to relax after a busy day, to enjoy soft comfort and spend time together. A sofa is an ideal place for taking a nap and serves as a reserve bed for visitors if need be. A sofa is a long-term investment that should endure daily use for years, even decades. That is why a good-quality sofa is a good investment. Take a look at Finnish Design Shop’s diverse selection of Nordic sofas and couches from leading Scandinavian design brands.

The size makes the sofa a dominant furniture piece to be selected with care. Consider what fits the room best: a 2-seater or a 3-seater, a chaise longue or a modular sectional sofa. A sofa-bed is a practical choice if the sofa will be regularly used as a spare bed. You should also consider whether you prefer a soft sofa or a more firm one, and what fits your home the best – a fully upholstered sofa or, for instance, a delicate wood-framed sofa. It is advisable to leave ample space around the couch to maintain a spacious look in the room.

There are two equally popular upholstery options for sofas: leather and textile. Whichever you choose, Finnish Design Shop sells quality that lasts. The upholstery fabrics of our sofas include sturdy natural materials such as wool, linen, cotton, and we also have sofas upholstered in luxurious velvet. The Martindale value, which quantifies abrasion resistance, describes the durability of the fabric. In regular home use, the value should be at least 20,000. The colour of the fabric is essential as well. Earthy shades of grey, white and brown are basic colours in Scandinavian design, but why not add a splash of colour to the room by selecting a yellow, bright red or petrol blue sofa.

We have collected a fantastic range of quality Scandinavian sofas and couches from various decades of modern design. We have many mid-century sofa classics, including wooden sofas by Klassik Studio and rattan sofas by Sika-Design as well as modern sofas by Muuto, Hakola, &Tradition and Hay. Once you find your favourite, complete the set with a coffee table, pouf and maybe a couple of cushions of your choice. Take a look at Finnish Design Shop’s selection and order the sofa of your dreams!
