About Trend: Up-and-Coming Minimalist Swedish Accessories

Sometimes contemporary designs look very crude, making it hard for some of us to want to add them to our houses. Let’s be honest — I need my home to be inviting and comfortable, and minimalism seldom focuses on that objective.

But have no fear. Adding minimalist accessories is an effortless way to bring a few modernity into the mix. These Swedish designs have both ends covered: They’re both modern and inviting. Take a look at how each product uses the simple notion of outstretched arms to bring some humanity to their simple forms. I find these designs uplifting and comforting, too.
