Even if you’re not yet acquainted with the word, you’re more than likely familiar with the feel of ‘hygge.’ Stemming from Danish and Norwegian culture, hygge is characterized by an atmosphere of comfort within the home. We’re exploring the meaning behind hygge and how we’re curating a cozy and intentional lifestyle with OM leather.
Derived from the old Icelandic word ‘hugga’ and sharing similar origins as the English word for hug, hygge remains an elusive concept to put into words. Somewhat undefinable, author Pia Edberg said it best when she wrote, “hygge was never meant to be translated—it was meant to be felt.”
This Danish word has transcended dictionaries and best describes the sense of love and comfort we find from feeling at home within our relationships and personal space. A feeling, a mindset and a lifestyle all rolled into one; hygge is all about curating your own atmosphere of comfort.
When creating a space that best represents this feeling, you’ll commonly find clean lines, simple design and neutral color schemes that offer a warm and inviting take of minimalism. Natural materials like knitted yarn, wood and leather are easy ways to add a sense of hygge into your living space.
