Cosy Winter Touches and Danish Design in Our Little Cabin

Paid partnership with Carl Hansen & Søn, all words and pictures are my own

UPDATE; come here looking for Rune's cosy Noreweign home at Christmas? Click here for the tour! 

A little elf has been busy at the cabin re-arranging furniture again! This time, four incredible Vega chairs from Carl Hansen & Søn have been added around the table (I'm beginning to like this elf a lot!). Are you familiar with this iconic chair? Officially known as VLA26T Vega Chair, it was created in 1956 in Copenhagen by Vilhelm Lauritzen. 

Previously confined to the historic Vega concert hall in Copenhagen, the wonderful team at Carl Hansen & Søn have re-launched the Vega chair in partnership with Vilhelm Lauritzen Architects and made it available to a wider audience - hurrah! 

I think it fits in beautifully here, do you? 

True to Vilhelm Lauritzen's signature style, the chair is a modernist masterpiece and features a simple functionalist design yet also has some beautiful touches. I especially love the softly curved back rest, the wood and steel combination as well as the elegant wooden feet (the devil is in the detail, after all!).  

It also comes in a black version. 

Aren't they beautiful?

Sadly, this set is sadly just on loan for the shoot, but I think I'll make the most of them while up at the cabin with my sister this weekend (can't wait to see her - and enjoy the chairs!)!

Loving this chair too? Find more about it over at Carl Hansen & Søn

I've captured so many iconic Danish design classics in my home for My Scandinavian Home over the past few years, here are some of my favourites:

Is there one that stands out to you in particular? 

Oh, and do you like our subtle Christmas touches? Now that I've started, I can't stop. A tree might even sneak its way in at some point! 

Wishing you a very cosy weekend! See you Monday! 



  1. LOVE these chairs!

    1. They are so fab! And since they have a gently curved seat and backrest they are surprisingly comfortable too. I don't want to give them back now :( /Niki

  2. The chairs are beautiful and they look very comfy as well. The pale colour of the wood is purr-fect.

    1. Yes, I love the light wood too! / Niki

  3. I just love the Danish armchair in your cabin. I could sleep in there! The lines, the material, the design... So beautiful!

    1. I think the armchair is my absolute favourite piece of furniture I own, I absolutely love it for all the reasons you say! Can highly recommend the investment, I'm sure my children will enjoy it one day in their homes, and then my grandchildren - it's that well made!

  4. The chairs pair well with your table. Are you sure you can't make them a permanent acquisition? :)

    In other news .... you've inspired me to try my hand at making a paper star. I bought the materials this morning.

    1. I'm going to try my art of persuasion!

      How exciting re the paper star - how did it go?

  5. Your cabin is looking so cosy. Are you spending more time up there now you have a warm inviting hideaway?

    1. Thank you! Yes, I absolutely love it and go at any opportunity! It's so quiet and peaceful up there :) / Niki
