Danish style has always been two steps ahead of American style. For instance, the mid-century era was dominated by the paradigm-shifting designs of Danish designers. Today, we’re seeing a new Danish influence in interiors â€” but in a whole new way. The trend is called “hygge” (pronounced “HOO-gah”). Named one of the top 10 words of 2016 by Collins Dictionary, this Danish word is all about the art of coziness.Â Rich textures? Very hygge. Casual, comfortable, unpretentious styling? So hygge. Furniture that inspires you to curl up with a good book? Definitely hygge. We’re getting in on this cultural phenomenon with these cozy new pieces that are currently available at Viyet:
