As Scandinavian design has gained popularity, one may wonder what exactly it is. To give a brief history on it, the design comes from Northern European countries such as Norway, Sweden, and Denmark. Due to the cultural similarities of these countries, a Scandinavian aesthetic is identified through its white walls, wood floor, minimalistic and practical furniture, and simple simplicity. A Scandinavian design home uses a neutral and monochromatic color scheme with pops of color to add accents. The design is mostly chosen to achieve a neutral and calm vibe of a place that is also fairly well-lit due to its neutral colors.
Seeing that the first thought in almost everyone's mind when mentioning Scandinavian design is Ikea, we have compiled a top 10 list of other Scandinavian wardrobe brands in Malaysia for the year 2022 to help widen your search and make life a little easier.
