Sooner or later all Scandi design items gets a little bit scruffy around the edges. But design of high quality will grew old with charm and dignity. That’s why vintage Scandinavian is still in the loop! Your design pieces definitely’s got a second life and it’ll take a lifetime or more before such a piece is definitely worn out.
The classic garden chair in powder coated steel make a perfect companion over years. In this Swedish house a few simple chairs with worn paint adds a laidback feel to the designer table, strict greenery and minimalistic architecture. From a piece by Cia Wedin for ELLE Decoration.

The classic Stool 60 by Alvar Aalto for Artek was designed in 1933. Some years ago Artek started ”2nd cycle” – a business which take back old furniture, restore them and sell them again. Some of the original stools are left with the original paint, now worn but lovely. Photo copyright Artek.
