It’s no secret we’ve long been admirers of Nordic furniture and Scandinavian styled décor, also widely and lovingly known as; Scandi style. There is something inherently chic at the heart of so much of what our Norse neighbours have long held as their stylistic wisdom. Refined and simple finishes paired with clean lines and light wood finishing are so often the calling cards of this world-renowned style. We’re utterly besotted with the effortless cool of this genre of furniture we’ve gone about collating a selection ripe to lift your space. Where simplicity and classic come together is the Norsk sweet spot, and there is no better example of this than light oak furniture. Today we’re going to take a whirl through our smörgåsbord of offerings within our Modern Light Oak Range, a beautiful line of furniture we were very quick to add to our inside ranges. We’re going to take a peek at the benefits of adding some to your space.

The Slim Oak Kitchen Table

The Modern Light Oak Extending Dining Table (2m)

Where other to start than with the focal point of many people’s dining rooms or even homes. The humble kitchen table is often where life in the home centres around, so it makes sense that choosing one with style and function at the forefront is precisely how to approach making this important decision. Nordic furniture is a wonderful option for both of these reasons. Firstly, you will always find style in abundance when utilising Scandi style, that’s a given. Secondly by nature the very core of this style remains highly functional, it’s kind of what these Norse nations do best. We think our Modern Light Oak Dining Table absolutely ticks both of these boxes. Hugely benefiting from a sleek slimline design and mat lacquered oak veneer table top, this Nordic furniture is kept together sturdily with a solid oak frame.

The sumptuous finish of the oak is the real draw with a unique chevron panelling showcased across all of this light oak furniture. Making dining space specifically shine with a breezy and light summer-elegance. There’s a reason this remains one of our best selling tables year on year. The matching bench makes this table set an irresistible proposition, or similarly the especially matched padded grey contemporary chairs. 


Modern Nordic Living Rooms

Within the Modern Light Oak range is a fabulous selection of living room ready furnishings. Nordic furniture with elegant contemporary touches perfect for freshening up any interior. We love the gorgeous simple Modern Light Oak Coffee Table with its Chevron panelled oak veneer surface, similarly seen on the oak kitchen table, and sitting at a favourable height for placing a drink or household items. Tapered slimline legs ensure this piece is in no way foreboding. Indeed, coffee tables are an integral feature of Scandi style living rooms, there’s even a specific Swedish term given over to the idea of designated coffee and cake time – Fika! 

Modern Light Oak Media UnitWe’re also obsessed with the light and breezy benefits that the pale wood panels of the Modern Light Oak Media Unit gives off. Another cornerstone of Nordic furniture in so many ways. Clever sliding doors are almost concealed, where inside there is ample storage room. The same stylistic tapered legs, this time cute and stubby, make this piece altogether rather pleasing on the eye. Sitting at a perfect height to place a TV or console atop this item of light oak furniture, we know this unit will suit many décor schemes. 

If it’s more storage that’s required we think our sizeable and fantastic looking Modern Light Oak 2 Door/3 Drawer Sideboard will more than rise to the challenge. Whilst the characteristic light oak really goes some way to help make this larger unit from feeling in any way bulky or foreboding. A perfect Scandi style injection in the home.

Modern Light Oak Alternative Side TableLastly, there’s the wonderfully unique Modern Light Oak Alternative Side Table. A piece of Nordic furniture with art at its core. A paired back design sees an overhang ledge set this side table apart from the rest. We also think it would look equally lovely used as a bedside table in the bedroom. Store magazines or a couple of slim books in the purpose made cut out, this piece is sure to stimulate conversation. Useful and stylish, just like all good Scandi style furniture worth its salt.




We understand that there are a good deal of products available in the Nordic furniture style of décor, but we are honest believers whether its an oak kitchen table or a simple coffee table, there are endless many benefits of the Modern Light Oak range, if not only for the wonderful finishes seen across the whole collection. We hope you can find some scandi style inspo, here too. 🙂
