Scandinavian Chic will be reporting from Oslo Fashion Week!

Scandinavian Chic is teaming up with lookbook.no, and will be reporting from Oslo Fashion Week, Aug 16th-22nd!


Lookbook.no is the official photographer for the fashion week, so you can expect good coverage. We’ll make sure you know what’s hot and what’s not…

I’m crossing my fingers, hoping that Leila Hafzi will show her collection – in my opinion she’s one of the top Norwegian designers.

Chic or Shit?

Image Courtesy of Boligmagasinet
Last week’s Chic or Shit with the crocodile was a pretty obvious one… This one might be a little bit more tricky. The hands! Love them? Hate them?

Chic or Shit? What do you think?

Thank you KK!

KK – probably the biggest weekly women's magazine in Norway (and magazine of the year 2010) listed Scandinavian Chic as one of their go to blogs.
Thank you!!
Check out what Ine Thereze Gransæther (editor of kk.no) had to say about us:
2010 07 27 001
2010 07 27 002
“The coolest thing abut Scandinavian Chic, is that it lives up to it’s name. The blog details good Scandinavian design, both in fashion and interior design. Elegant.”
Thanks again, KK! Remember to check them out online, or get their latest issue, which is, if I may say so myself, pretty fabulous!

Back from my Norwegian summer vacation....

I am back from my road trip in beautiful Norway!
We have been driving from the west and up to
the north
and back south again!

We have visited so many great places
and I will share
them all with you this week!

Hope you are enjoying you`re summer!


Scandinavian Design Classic: The Saarinen Tulip Table

The tulip table by Eero Saarinen is a table most of us know and love. It’s known for it’s versatility and looks appropriate in everything from strict minimalism to the most maximalistic rooms you can imagine.

The side table paired with Louis chairs, a Hollywood Regency chinoiserie table lamp and a black/white striped rug is very successful”


“Ah, Domino, come back, come back!!! We need to see more fabulous homes like this”

So I have a question for you – which room do you think incorporates the Tulip in the best way? Do you prefer it with or without Tulip chairs?
