The Nordic Christmas is probably the ‘original’ Christmas for some of us. Santa Claus is coming from the Big North, after all. The Scandinavian style is famous for its simple and natural look which reflects in the Christmas decorations. Inspiration is taken from natural elements: berries, trees, logs, snowy landscapes. The nature brings complexity which is often simplified by the nordic designers, and elegance and calm are included in the interiors through a contemporary yet traditional vision. Modern materials are reproducing natural themes that are talking about the Scandinavian view on the world.
Let’s have a look together at my personal selection for a Nordic Christmas!
Christmas bauble glass by Iittala
These glass baubles are simply perfect to decorate the Christmas tree… but what do you think of an alternative use for them? They look like berries on a table and will look fabulous collected in a bowl.
Nobili candle holder by Kähler
These ceramic pieces are bringing the forest and the snow in your house. And the discreet lights are turning on the magic! Amazing decorations for a window sill, a side table or a shelf. They enchanted me, it was love at first sight!
Tall candle by Pluto
You are in a forest, and the candles between the branches of the trees are leading the path to Santa’s cabin. Designed out of metal, with a touch of elegant modernity, these candle holders are the perfect complement to your Nordic Christmas decor.
Aalto vase cranberry by Iitala
One of the most famous design pieces of all times can be found now in its Christmas version! The vase from Aalto is now available in Cranberry!

Winter birds pillowcase by Ekelund
There is nothing better in a cold winter day of being all comfy and warm on the sofa drinking hot chocolate in front of the fireplace. Made of ecological cotton (Scandinavian countries are leading the eco-friendly revolution for a reason), this pillowcase is simply adorable. Decorated with typical Nordic Christmas patterns, it will give your rooms a cosy and soft feeling.
Balance brass candle holder by Ferm
This is an absolute beautiful piece of design in itself. No need for Christmas to enjoy this candle holder. But there is something in its lines and sense of symmetry that reminds of old Christmases, where elegance and simplicity come together to instils peace in us gathered around a flame to celebrate the magic of that night. Too poetic? Perhaps, but this is a stunning item. nothing more to say.
Decoration tree marble by Ferm
Quite unusual decoration for Christmas, but the natural beauty of the marble and the simplified geometric shape of the tree are doing the magic. for those of you who prefer minimal design and are seeking a contemporary feel for their Christmas.

The spirit of Nordic Christmas design is symbolised in these timber pieces of decor. Simple trees as table decorations that are themed to go together with wooden leaves and pine cones on your tree. Natural looking, simplified shapes. this is what the Nordic Christmas is about: celebrating the relationship with the nature and the season!
