A purified style and organic lines are what characterize the Scandinavian designs in Maison Nordik, a new home design shop in Paris, France. Without ornaments, their creations reflect the spirit of the cultures of the Northern countries (Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland and Iceland). It's easy for wood and other natural materials to find a comfortable place in interior design. At Maison Nordik, esthetic and comfort are as important as the functionality.
Maison Nordik was created to open a sales room dedicated to Scandinavian style. Here, designer items are displayed in the context of the classics of the '50s and '60s. The room is filled with designer lamps, beautiful ceramics and furniture made out of teak or Rio rosewood. It's all about the vintage look. Designer names include Finn, Juhi, Morgensen, Hans J. Wagner, Arne Jacobsen and Hansen. These designers and more share a space with Oliver Chaumet. They all specialize in made-to-measure industrial designs with recycled wood and steel. Right next to them, you'll find France's champion in coffee roasting, which also opened their "laboratory and cafe" right under the name of Cafe Lomi.
Maison Nordik has pieces for the home, ready-to-wear boutiques, salons, restaurants or bars. It's also a shop for those who like to treasure hunt for designer collectors' pieces. They now have a strong supply network coming from Denmark, transporting the finest hand-chosen items at maisonnordik.com.
The shop's artistic philosophy involves a simplicity of design, quality of materials and a modern reflex to use simple and natural materials. Forms, textures and soft colors inspired by nature are endless sources of inspiration for interiors that are warm, clear and luminous.
