An elegant exploration of the hugely influential simplicity, beauty, and functionality of Nordic design - timeless, yet on-trend From literature to food, lifestyle to fashion, cinema to architecture, Nordic influence is evident throughout contemporary culture.

The Red Thread: Nordic Design celebrates this deep-rooted aesthetic, showcasing the diversity of design from Scandinavia and Finland via more than 200 objects - from everyday items to exquisitely produced decorative glassware, and from traditional handmade textiles to mass-produced products found in homes across the globe.

The title is taken from a metaphor, common in the Nordic countries, of a shared and highlighted characteristic (like a long connecting thread in woven material), that runs through and connects themes, ideas, stories, and, in this case, design.

Authentic Nordic design

We exist to bring real and authentic Nordic style into British homes. Our collection of Danish furniture and lighting by world-renowned designers sit alongside an array of lifestyle items and home accessories from younger, emerging brands.

Design icons

Some of our pieces are almost a century old. The Nordic design output of the last hundred years (and the personalities of the designers) have become the retroactive benchmark used to critique contemporary Scandinavian design.
