When one thinks of Scandinavian design, simplicity and elegance come to mind. These examples include architectural projects and furniture pieces that embody a sleek and understated air.

Marrying aesthetics with function, Scandinavian designers are known for experimenting with form and shape without ever sacrificing practicality. Standouts from this list include natural wood seating and table designs that are perfect for contemporary spaces along with general household goods that are designed to keep one's kitchen and office organized.

In addition to more contemporary examples, this list also zones in on traditional Scandinavian decor and features residences that feature a heavy use of retro wood paneling along with furnishings that are made using cultural craftsmanship techniques that have been passed down from generation to generation.
