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.

Statement-making pieces include a swanky shelving and storage system by Rudi Wulff, an origami-like folded pendant light and matching cushions by Scottish designer Kyla McCallum, self-watering planters by Norwegian designer Ann Kristin Einarsen, ballet-inspired figurines by Norwegian design studio Vera & Kyte, Johan Lindstén's matt-black lamps, a smoked-oak minimalist drinks cabinet by Swedish duo Färg & Blanche, and Chinese designer Cecilia Xinyu Zhang's architecture- inspired clothes rack.
