A Modern Celebration of the Past
Your present celebrates your past.
We see it in your home, where every little thing tells a story.
A well-used baking bowl in a beautifully shaped ceramic, a flowing curtain in front of a small-paned window, and a solid kitchen table to gather your friends around.
Modern Rustic reflects that you appreciate what has been, but also what's coming next.
The main features originate from the notion of a cosy, relaxed lifestyle in rural surroundings, put into the context of modern daily life.
Modern Rustic has a long history, and traces its origins from Swedish Gustavian style and French femenine shapes from the 1700s.
The style is however constantly evolving, and after a flirt with faded florals and religious motifs in the 1980s and 1990s, the style is now permeated by industrial and ethnic elements.
This creates interesting meetings between nostalgia and modern life.
Authentic Ambience with Lasting Value
At the heart of th Modern Rustic style lie beautifully crafted objects with a sense of lasting value and authenticity.
The ambience is inviting and comfortable, creating the space for a slower lifestyle.
Rough Wood, Linen and Ceramics
Choose hardwood floors with rough surfaces and cracks and knots to get that Modern Rustic look.
They should look like they withstand tough treatment, from toy building bricks to furry paws and heavy boots.
The floors look part of a life gone by and of a life to come.
The textiles are nature-based, such as cotton and linen, while the furniture and rugs are plaited or woven.
The colour scale is neutral with features in warm tones.
Ceramics feature in the kitchen, alongside metal and steel.
Modern Rustic provides a breathing space in a rapidly changing world , and keeps us in touch with our past without being overly sentimental.
