Great design should be appreciated and shared, which is why the next seven brands in Skandium’s ABC of Scandinavian design are all about entertaining. Invite your whole family over for dinner and drinks — these brands have you covered.

Royal Copenhagen’s timeless crockery

Dinner’s ready! You might recognise Royal Copenhagen’s Blue Fluted Plain porcelain dinner service. Its simple design will make everyone feel at home, while the Blue Fluted Mega dinner service displays the same intricate shapes from an updated perspective. For a minimalist interior, try the White Fluted dinner service. Your guests’ plates will be empty in no time.

Skagerak’s elegant dining room

Elegance meets mealtimes with Skagerak’s practical Aldus dining table 200. Its natural oak design is exquisite. Accompany it with the subtle Terne Pendant lamp, and no one will want to leave the table.

Sika Design’s innovative seating

Sneak off for a quiet moment with a cocktail in the classic Hanging egg chair. If you’ve still got company, kick back and relax with after-dinner drinks in the Chill chair and stool. Chill chair is made from durable rattan, and its natural curves match many interior styles.

Stelton’s ingenious kitchen equipment

Got friends popping over for tea? Treat them with the imaginative Collar Tea Pot. It’s part of the Collar series, which comes together as an excellent talking point. For something cool or even a little stronger, try the Emma serving jug, which works both as a pitcher and a flower holder.

String’s iconic storage solutions

An inevitable part of entertaining is tidying up before and after. Make storage easy and beautiful with the String cabinet with sliding doors. Design your own String system with the String grid for wall, which displays your items with simple elegance.

Santa & Cole’s subtle lighting

Who could forget lighting? It’s essential for a cosy atmosphere at any gathering. Cesta batería lamp will create that hygge feeling on any occasion while intriguing your guests with its adorable shape. TMM floor lamp also provides comfort and serenity.

Tala’s atmospheric lighting

And more on light… Tala’s lamps illuminate a long evening of scintillating conversation. Make it hygge with the portable Touch Table Lamp which has a three-touch dimming system for the exact brightness you need, or light up a whole room with the Knuckle Pendant Lamp. Both come in various mouth-blown glass shapes; why not mix and match them to create the perfect ambience?
