Inspired by the Danish Island Læsø, Meet the Hygge Collection

Design studio Kauppi & Kauppi, also known as Johan Kauppi and Nina Kauppi, have joined forces for the first time with Swedish furniture producer Karl Andersson & Söner to create a collection of wooden ottomans. Inspiration was found in a sailing trip to the Danish island of Læsø, which you’ll note in the island-like design of each piece that launched at Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair.

Available in three sizes with three optional accessories, the Hygge collection is designed to accommodate various needs and can handle one, two, or more seated individuals. The familial ties between the various options are thanks to the amazing woodwork and craftsmanship of Karl Andersson & Söner that make up the legs of each ottoman. Group various ottomans together for a central meeting space, then consider adding either the small round personal table or the long table to create an even more welcoming setting.

The Hygge family of furniture is developed to leave a lot of options open for the interior designers to play. Its flexibility in use, functionality, and expression will easy lend itself to interiors in a broad range of styles. Fully dressed in black it will signal a minimalistic and strong attitude, while a blond soft material and surface choice will emphasize and flirt more with the Scandi-soft tradition.
