Norwegian brand Northern brings its pared-back Scandinavian aesthetic to a cool new furniture and homeware collection

Previously known as Northern Lighting, Norwegian brand Northern has expanded its portfolio from purely illumination to encompass furniture design and interior accessories, with an inaugural collection that was two years in the making.

Unveiled at the Stockholm Furniture Fair in February, the range features furniture, lighting and homewares designed by a creative team of 16 from seven countries. They highlight understated luxury, the simplicity of the Nordic spirit and multifunctional designs.
