A selection of our favorite authentic Scandinavian design kitchen + dining accessories
They say the kitchen is the heart of the home, so why not make it as aesthetic as it is functional? We’ll help you get there by showcasing 18 thoughtfully designed pieces and collections for the modern Scandinavian-style kitchen.
The Ripple Glassware collection has been a well-loved favorite for years, and for a good reason, too. The series of glassware includes drinking glasses in multiple sizes, carafes, wine glasses, champagne glasses, and even small glasses for dessert drinks. Each set comes in clear or smoked grey hand-blown glass.
We love the leather handle of Skagerak’s Norr Paper Towel Holder, which elevates the common kitchen accessory.
Hasami Porcelain was formed with a vision to integrate modern tableware with organic and traditional Japanese manufacturing techniques. Their neutral-toned plates and bowls will last for generations. Plus, they’re stackable, making storage easy. Imagine them on open cabinets!
Tea towels are simple in ––Ferm Living’s Hale Tea Towels are all about the details. Made from a gorgeous, high-quality natural linen and cotton blend, each towel is designed to last. Each tea towel is yarn-dyed, offering a practical way to add a pop of color to your kitchen. Mix and match the designs for a cohesive yet colorful set, or choose one tone for a simpler look.
Add aesthetic and easy to access storage with this brass Kitchen Rod. The six hooks allow you to clear the table or countertop of textiles, kitchen tools, pots, pans, and even decorative items!
Wine Breather Carafe - MENU Design
The minimalist Wine Breather Carafe allows you to indulge in a glass of red wine with easy oxygenation. It comes in clear or smoked glass..
Made with small pieces of teak end grain, each Dania Cutting Board has a unique light and dark brown pattern. Teak is the perfect material for a cutting board, with natural oils that resist moisture and germs and also absorb the impact of a knife’s blade.
The Junto set is inspired by traditional Spanish ceramics made from fired terracotta. All of the pieces share a delicate interplay between surfaces that are both mat and glazed, grooved and smooth. Use Junto as a single set or mix and match it with your existing porcelain. The earthy red colors of fired terracotta bring depth and glow to the interior, and introduce a touch of southern warmth to your table.
Tall Corky Drinking Glasses and Carafe - MUUTO Design
“The shape of the Corky Carafe is inspired by the archetypical bottle. It is a straightforward combination of glass and cork that functions equally well as a wine carafe, a water jug, or even a milk bottle,” explains Engesvi. “Corky has a simple and familiar form but with a characteristic and oversized detail. The Corky Drinking Glasses are small and light companions for the Corky carafe. With a low-key and light expression, they are suited for both everyday use and special occasions with friends and family.”
The entire Craft range is made of solid oak and robust marble. "The mills, mortar with pestle and rolling pin are all traditional kitchen utensils used for active jobs in the kitchen. Therefore the utensils have to be durable,” explains designer Simon Legald. ”Additionally, the work is done by hand, so for me it is essential that the quality can not only be seen but also felt when holding the products. The marble and oak served this purpose perfectly." The Craft range adds a luxurious Scandinavian feel to your kitchen decor.
We can’t get enough of the neutral off-white tone of Kristina Dam’s Setomono Tableware. It’s perfect for styling on open shelves, a bar cart, or directly on the table.
The Soft Serving Board can be used for both prepping and serving. We love its smooth surface and rounded edges!
Driven by careful craftsmanship, clever details, and exquisite material combinations, the Umanoff Wine Rack brings the work of the late Arthur Umanoff to a larger audience, reviving the legacy of the great American mid-century modern designer.
The Grib Tray is the one object on this list that does not have to remain in the kitchen (although any of the carafes are a great addition to a bedside table). Made with powder-coated metal, this practical tray can be carried anywhere with its built-in handle. We recommend using it in the kitchen to store your most-used herbs and spices.
Brus Carafe - Ferm Living
With the Brus Carafe, it’s all about the details and texture. This unique carafe design has a distinct bubbled surface that naturally happens through air pockets that occur during the layering process of the mouth-blown glass. Note the small indent towards the top for easy gripping while you serve your liquid of choice.
Ode Brew Grinder - Fellow
The beautifully functional design of the Stagg Pour-Over Kettle kicks your coffee brewing up a notch, featuring a precision pour spout, a built-in brew-range thermometer, and a counterbalanced handle that moves the center of mass back towards your hand.
The Round Section Cutting Board features a flat side for cutting and a curved side for serving. Herman Studio, the Danish designers behind Form and Refine’s Section series, said that “it was clear to us that function and form really have to stand out. Therefore it can stand, be turned and be grabbed easily. The objects with the curved lines were named Section to underline the form, which gives the boards their expression and functionality."
