WARM, NORDIC

Scandanavian Design is Typically Described as 'Cool', Not So With Warm Nordic

Frantz Longhi, founder of Warm Nordic, created his company in order to foster a different appreciation for Scandinavian design. Full of warmth and certainly inviting, Warm Nordic's pieces eschew the 'cold', classic appeal of the region's design in favor of something more inviting, more down to earth. Longhi has been collecting Scandinavian design for years, and made a name for himself by furnishing the famous series of Kahler restaurants with pieces from the 1950s and 60s bought at auction.

Over time, enough guests had asked about the classic chairs, tables and lamps, which were no longer being produced and an idea began to take shape. Longhi contacted the descendants of the original architects and designers, and found huge support among the families for injecting new life into these beautiful designs: Warm Nordic began to take shape.
