Classic Scandinavian

"Scandinavian design is a design movement characterized by simplicity, minimalism and functionality that emerged in the 1950s in the five Nordic countries of Finland, Norway, Sweden, Iceland and Denmark," according to a quote from Wikipedia. In actuality, this type of furniture had its origin in Denmark in the 1920's. The primary wood used was teak.

When I named my design "Classic", I wanted to use the type of furnishings and setting that has distinguished this type of style from its very beginning. I find it odd that such a very minimalist style has endured almost a hundred years, since most of it lacks comfort and warmth, especially the molded plastic chairs, which in addition reflect their low-cost mass production.

I am astonished not to see more wood burning and/or ceramic stoves in the RS Scandinavian contest, as these heating modules today are a typical part of Northern European homes. As a matter of fact, they  have become wildly  popular in some of those countries.  That is why in the second version of my Scandinavian design, I have included a ceramic stove. Both of these stoves distribute the heat into the room, while in the open fireplace most of the heat escapes through the chimney.
