About Scandinavian Home Decor

When we think of Scandinavian Decor, mostly we think of the ultra contemporary, cutting edge design.  This is true for a part of the market, but it is not all like this.  Just as in Australia, not all Scandinavians desire a pared back minimalist lifestyle.  The Danish country home can be many things from opulent castles (slots), to rural farmhouses and slick seaside bolt-holes. 

Greengate of Copenhagen designs lifestyle products to suit interiors of a feminine or country feel.  Since the early 90's, this family-owned company has been translating classic European designs using modern colour pallets to suit today's relaxed lifestyle.  You can read more about Greengate here.

Fair Trade - What it means to us

We have been visiting factories in developing countries since the 1990 and we can always tell a "happy" work place where workers are well rewarded and happy to come to work.  In the early days these were not so common, but more lately manufacturers in India and South East Asia see the benefit of this as buyers like us seek out non exploitative work places. 

More recently one our key suppliers in Australia, This... Design & living, has commenced working with co-operatives that are FAIR TRADE CERTIFIED.  In particular one in southern India that empowers artisans, especially women, and involves them in many activities of the business beyond the actual production of items.  On the job training in accounting, marketing and administration is one of the benefits of this cooperative, giving workers the opportunity to advance into administrative roles if they so desire.   

The products from this co-operative will be available online this September. We will always do our best to undertake business with suppliers who value the Fair Trade ethos
