Without sacrificing elegance, Scandinavian design is characterized by a emphasis on clean , clear lines, minimalism and functionality. Scandinavian style favors bright, airy spaces. It first came to prominence in the 1950s, around the same time as modern style took hold in America and Europe. The lack of clutter is part of what makes it so aesthetically pleasing.
Scandinavians also respect nature highly, and spend time outdoors, which is reflected in this style. Wood floors tend to remain uncovered, and lighter tones of wood are also used in Scandinavian homes. And live plants are, of course, a common option when it comes to really getting in the outdoors.
