View Slideshow

For their 2020 collection, Danish company Bolia has taken their Scandinavian design to the next level by creating their most sustainable products yet. It’s been in the works for two years, with natural materials and sustainability the starting point for every new design, and it took collaborating with over 30 gifted designers to make this collection a reality.

“For this collection, we have explored the beauty in the nature, materials, and colours from the ever-changing Scandinavian seasons that surrounds us. The new sustainable collection forms part of our wider efforts to reduce impact on the environment, and sustainability has been the starting point for every new design. We are on a new exciting path for Scandinavian Design and are proud of the many sustainable initiatives behind the new 2020 design collection, but the one we believe matters the most; is designing beautiful products that are built to last for many years,” says Lars Lyse Hansen, CEO,

With their 2020 collection, Bolia is going all in with extra attention to crafted details, certified natural materials, and product longevity. They’re also introducing eco-friendly dyes, recycled polyester, organic cotton, and OEKOTEX certified fabrics. All of Bolia’s designs are made from FSC certified wood and all leathers are traceable and produced without any use of synthetic or harmful compounds. The wool is IWTO certified and the new Bergo and Ocean fabrics are made from only recycled materials, while the rugs are labeled with the Care and Fair-mark. All of the furniture designs are handmade in Europe, with some manufacturers being powered by solar energy and re-using their dyeing water. In other words, bring Bolia’s Scandinavian style into your space and feel good about doing it.
