The Scandi style lighting is born from the complex relationship Scandinavians have with light. Going from summer months drenched in sunlight to nearly no natural light throughout the long winter months, they have learned to make smart use of lighting.
Below, we’ve handpicked a range of Scandinavian lighting to complement the natural light and clean lines in your décor:
The increasingly popular Scandi tradition Hygge is tightly linked to the use of effective lighting all around the house. Elegant, refined chic is the signature characteristic of the design style. Mix minimalist furniture with beautiful Scandinavian lighting for a balanced, sophisticated look.
Scandi style interior design combines natural materials, clean lines and muted shades into an effortless décor that’s both practical and delightful to dwell in. With as little as seven hours of daylight in winter, it’s no wonder that lighting is such an essential part of their local design – that’s why choosing the perfect Scandi light fitting will go a long way in bringing an authentic Scandinavian feel to your home.
The Scandinavian light fixtures in our collection are perfect for adding a soothing soft lighting to the cosy atmosphere of your Nordic home. Made from a range of beautifully handcrafted metals and fine glass shades, our Scandi style lighting offers a choice of shapes and designs so you can find the right ambience for your space. ⇪
Modern Scandi lighting is defined by the same clean lines and simple, neutral white aesthetic as the rest of the homeware and furniture associated with the style. From delicate ceramic cluster chandeliers to artfully hand blown glass pendants, our Scandi lighting is perfect for creating an ephemeral feeling in your home and capturing the brightness of the space in true Scandinavian fashion.
Lovers of a more rustic, vintage aesthetic will also have plenty of Scandinavian light fixtures to choose from. Brushed steel pendants and smoked glass shades, for one, are a stylish mixture of industrial and Nordic.
Much like the rest of Scandinavian design, with Scandi style lighting less is more. Our selection of minimalist light fittings is perfect for infusing simplicity and elegance into any room, whether you are creating a warm, cosy space or a vintage style interior.
To take your indoors one step further down the minimalist Scandi lighting route, forego light shades all together and opt for one of decorative light bulbs, which look gorgeous both as an individual scandi pendant light and bundled together to create a mesmerising Scandinavian light fixture. Stunningly incandescent, trendy and original, this interior design choice is sure to impress house guests! ⇪
When it comes to adding a chandelier to a Scandinavian style interior, we suggest choosing something that’s both restrained enough to fit in with the design and decorative enough to be a focal point.
Instead of a vintage candle chandelier, try one of our sumptuous chandelier clusters as your Scandi ceiling light. Combining the elegance of glass pendants with the timeless style of chandeliers, our Scandinavian style fixtures look especially breath-taking when they are grouped together!
Delicate glass shades make huge impact when placed centre stage in a room. Beautifully transparent and exuding ambiance, our Scandinavian ceiling lights are the perfect choice for spreading light throughout the room and creating a feature in its own right.
Both sophisticated and functional, our Scandi style ceiling lights are also fantastic as task lighting. Hang them over a kitchen island or a dining table for an extra boost of illumination, and watch your Scandi home transform as you experiment with light focus and shade. ⇪
Scandi style wall lights are another way to play around with focus in your interior design. We recommend spreading warmth and brightness to the corners of your room with a couple of Scandinavian wall lights, which you can position as either uplights or spotlights depending on you décor. ⇪
Scandi pendant lights are the perfect choice for illuminating a kitchen unit or a dining area. Instead of relying on harsh bright lights high above your head, hang a glass pendant low over your table for a more focused, softer effect. Positioning your Scandinavian pendant light centre stage also gives your dinner guests the opportunity to fully appreciate the stunning design of our shades.
When using pendant lights in your Scandi interior, we suggest focusing on particular areas of a room rather than lighting the whole space with one fixture. Whether it’s a cluster or an individual Scandi pendant light, scattering them across different areas will turn the pendants from a functional appliance into a striking focal point.
Choosing pendant lights is by far the best way to add a modern edge to a Scandinavian interior. Experiment with different shades and materials, mixing glass and ceramic, geometric edges and gentle curves to create a multi-faceted selection of lighting fixtures that turns your home into a design masterpiece.
If you lean more towards industrial décor, we also have a selection of rustic Scandinavian pendant lights that will fit perfectly with a more retro theme. Make the most of the Moccas’ trendy utilitarian finish by combining with industrial style furniture and accessories. For an even more authentic factory-style display, hang a group of these retro pendant lights over a kitchen counter or a dining table.
Commonly used above kitchen islands and tables, or along staircases, Scandi pendant lights are now becoming a versatile lighting fixture that finds its place in unexpected settings. Below we look in some of the innovative ways to incorporate Scandi style lighting into your décor. ⇪
Scandinavian pendant lights and lighting fixtures have broken out of their traditional dining room and kitchen setting, and spilled out into lounges and bedrooms.
