We have of course belived in Nordic Handcrafted design and art for a long time in the NOORVERK community. We meet new Scandinavian designers, artists and craftsmen every day who handcraft unique items and care about quality and craftsmanship. The talented Nordic artisans we carefully select for noorverk.com and this blog all base their work on fine design traditions, old fashion craftsmanship and sustainability.
Today we were confirmed once again when the famous interior stylist Louise Dorph pointed out the new trends for 2017. She highligted two areas, that she sees will inspire Scandinavian interior styling and Nordic living moving forward. First she pointed at Art Deco with heavy and dark shades of purple, gree and midnight blue mixed with metals, marble and heavy velvet.
The seconds trend she pointed out was Nordic Handcrafted: “Another trend is Nordic Handcrafted, that is growing bigger and bigger. And that is in my opinion not strange at all, as there is a great love and intimacy in the pure crafts and I have no doubt that we all need that right now – peace, intimacy and above all love”, Louise explains in ther blog post CATCH UP! The colours she points out in the Nordic Handcrafted trend are nude, but also coral and indigo blue. And materials are natural like wood, clay, leather and stone.
