Kristian Vedel | Decoration

Kristian Vedel (1923–2003) was a Danish designer, who also worked as a teacher and lecturer. In the 1950's, Vedel was part of the Scandinavian design movement together with fellow nordic designers and manufacturers. Vedel was inspired by a Danish architect Kaare Klint and the Bauhaus school in Germany which emphasized the importance of functionalism and handicrafts. Creative use of materials and ergonomic and functional requirements can also be found in Vedel's work. Kristian Vedel received numerous awards, among others the silver and gold medals from La Triennale di Milano.

Nordic luxury home decorations and harmonious spaces

Home decorations are a simple way to create harmony in a space that mixes multiple styles, materials, and colors. You can achieve a cohesive look by selecting decorative pieces based on a simple color palette or decorative theme. If you already have a dominant color palette or theme in a room, you can also mute this by adding plain or neutral accessories. If you’re looking for some color inspiration, read our Design Stories blog about surprising color combinations and how colors can create an atmosphere.

Decorate the Scandi way – our design checklist

If you love the Scandinavian design ambience but aren’t sure how to achieve it, focus on the key elements of classic Scandi design:

• Functionality – removing clutter using well-designed storage furniture, shelving units and creative and stylish small storage solutions.
• Clean lines – simple shapes and patterns
• Natural materials – wood, wool, rattan, cotton, glass, ceramic, metal
• Natural light – emphasize light with mirrors, candles and candleholders, and lamps from our lighting collection.
• Quality craftmanship – any of the quality furniture and decoration in our Finnish Design Shop
• Textural elements – chunky knitted plaids, sheepskin, soft rugs
• Muted or neutral hues for walls and main furnishings. See selected paint and wallpapers.

Establishing harmony in a room may be as simple as switching up the pillowcases, wall art and decorative objects, like candleholders and vases.
