Dutch Designer Woood and the Neo Nordic Trend

Four-Drawer-Writing-Desk-2-Cuckooland-GBP285

It’s always nice to come across a company or a designer you haven’t noticed before. I’m not sure where I’ve been though, because Netherlands-based Woood (no, that’s not a misspelling) have over 35 years experience working with the best Dutch designers to create unique, affordable Nordic-style pieces. But I can be forgiven, because they are only just about to launch in the UK and I’ve no doubt will be leading the ‘Neo-Nordic’ trend with their stunningly simple furniture pieces made from eco-friendly FSC® Mix responsibly sourced wood.

Refreshed for 2016, the range available via Cuckooland features natural wood, monochrome dice prints, and earthy grey, olive and chartreuse accents.

Contemporary-4-Drawer-Desk-Cutout-Cuckooland

This desk has to be my favourite piece. I’ve been looking for a desk for some time and I’m usually torn between looks and usefulness. This one looks good as a stand-alone piece (imagine it against a dark wall) but it also looks extremely practical. It’s wide for a start, has sturdy legs, and four very handy drawers for all those things you need nearby but don’t want to look at. And the best bit? It’s only £285.

Woood-Hidde-Cabinet-Lifestyle-Green-HR

The Hidde Cabinet is another perfect example of Woood’s ability to combine design and functionality into contemporary Scandi furniture. It is in fact a cupboard, drawer and bookshelf all-in-one, which makes it the perfect storage solution for small spaces. It’s available in two colours, the warm taupe grey will make a neutral space feel more homely, whilst the black version will suit a more masculine, monochrome scheme. Priced at £475.

Connect-Cabinet-3-Door-Wardrobe-Cuckooland-GBP425

Another very handsome piece. The Connect Contemporary 3 Door Cabinet (£425) just has such a sturdy look to it and would suit many kinds of interiors – not just those that veer towards a Nordic aesthetic.

Monochrome-Display-Cabinet-Lifestyle-Cuckooland-GBP395

Ditto the Monochrome Display Cabinet (£395).

Blend-Hanging-Lamps-Cuckooland

And they do lighting too! These stunning new pendant lamps in natural pale wood and black and white metal are an easy and effective way to bring a Scandi theme bang up-to-date for 2016.

All this and more available from Cuckooland.

    Nordic style is always such a great inspiration. Everything looks vintage but yet practical. Nice to see that there are more lovers of this lovely design.

      I agree and I think it’s going to be an even bigger trend in 2016 Abby. 🙂
