It should be no surprise to anyone that we’re huge fans of Scandinavian design (remember we even hosted Scandi week!). Something about those clean and simple lines, neutral color palette, cozy textures, and minimal aesthetics just makes us want to light a few candles, slip-on fuzzy socks, and stay in all day. But when it comes to buying affordable Scandinavian-inspired pieces for the home, IKEA is often the only retailer that’s top of mind.

If spending a weekend navigating the beast that is IKEA isn’t in the cards for you, we have good news: AllModern has an entire section devoted to furniture essentials that pay homage to Scandi style. From streamlined yet organic-looking furniture pieces to sleek light fixtures to cozy textures—there’s everything you need to create that feeling of hygge. Oh, and it’s all on sale too!

Napoleon Coffee Table

When it comes to Scandinavian style, pieces that look sleek on the outside while hiding your clutter on the inside are ideal. Case in point: This very sleek coffee table that has plenty of surface space to show off prized knick-knacks, but that also has a more hidden section to neatly stack whatever else doesn’t need to be seen. Also, 37% off is a pretty darn sweet deal.

Dormer Modern TV Stand 

This one has a more retro/mid-century modern vibe, but it’s great for spicing up a simple Scandi room. We love the futuristic design of this TV stand that has so much storage to hide all the clutter and messy wires. Use the two exposed cubbies to show-off your vintage record player or candle collection—or in true Scandinavian style, add some wire baskets.
