There are many reasons why we love Scandinavian design. The paired back tones, the sleek shapes, the use of natural materials… However, the best thing about Nordic goods must be their functionality. Objects underlie a classic “form follows function” philosophy and always serve a purpose first. They don’t just look pretty.
In this edit, we have hand-picked the best Scandi kitchen accessories. We love the fact that these items can sit decoratively in your kitchen. But of course – and most importantly – they can be used to prepare food or serve drinks.
The Retro Terracotta Bowl from Danish brand House Doctor is the perfect example of cleverly and beautifully designed kitchen accessories. Use it to serve snacks when you are having friends over or place it on the kitchen counter to store smaller items you need every day. The earthy tones add a calming vibe and a splash of colour. Being food-, dishwasher and microwave-safe this fine piece of stoneware will be a great addition to any kitchen.
When we think of a kitchen feast, beautifully arranged nibbles on ceramics platters come to our minds. Danish brand Madam Stoltz makes a great rectangular plate that comes in different sizes and has distinctively grey-brown burnt glazing. Pair them with Madam Stoltz’s matching bowls to create a harmonious look.
Of course, there’s more to discover than ceramics. Our glassware has proven to be a true kitchen hero. Whether you are serving your friends with an iced beverage or pouring yourself a glass – the clear jug, tumblers, and highball glasses are a game-changer. Staying hydrated has never been more fun.
As always, we hope this journal post has given you some ideas on how to incorporate decorative yet functional accessories into your kitchen.
