Think contemporary, and most automatically picture Scandinavian design — simple, clean lines, no clutter and ample use of light. Yet, whether you’re envisioning living room or office furniture, Scandinavian design dates back a few decades, building off greater emphasis on modernity. As you search for a desk, understand more what true Scandinavian design means.

Why a Scandinavian Desk?

Whether you’re thinking about a vintage or modern Scandinavian desk, this style — perhaps considered archetypically contemporary — is marked by a few key attributes.

One, Scandinavian furniture design emerged sometime toward the mid-20th century, starting in Nordic countries like Sweden and Denmark before it spread through the rest of Europe and eventually the U.S. Simplicity, at a basic level, defines what you’ll see among Scandinavian office design: Straightforward lines, solid colors, no clutter or knickknacks and a clear use of light and space. The result seems to almost illuminate the desk and rest of your office furniture, giving everything a clear purpose.

Update Your Office

To some extent, Scandinavian office furniture gives off a retro-modern vibe that’s simultaneously timeless. You know you’ve seen it before, perhaps even years ago, but the result is never dated nor specific to one décor trend. In turn, whether you’re on the search for an executive, writing or computer desk in a Scandinavian style, what’s old is new and feels fresh. Chairish acknowledges this fluidity, curating a selection of modern and vintage pieces that illuminate the work of current artisans and makers and keep vintage Scandinavian furniture in circulation to support a more sustainable economy.
