Skandinavisk was set up by 2 English chaps, Shaun and Gerry, who fell in love with 2 blonde Scandinavian girls 15 years ago and never left.
After both moved to the region, they gradually fell in love with the Scandinavian way of life – the focus on life's small moments, the priority of family over career, the cycle to the office, the home at 4pm, the raw nature, the endless summers.
They believe the absolute essence of Scandinavian lifestyle is in the colour, scent, light and warmth of a flickering candle flame and a glow that not only burrows deep through the wax, but one which nourishes the soul too. After all, Scandinavians use more candles than any other nation in the world. Because they know that a candle makes any moment softer, more informal, more cosy.
