Finnish Design

This classic Finnish home was designed by Kaisa Blomstedt. The clean lines and simplistic look is ideal for Finnish design. Blomstedt uses large windows taking up one whole wall and white stucco that gives this home a clean, modern look.

Finnish glassware is famous around the world for unique shapes and classic designs. This particular vase was designed Alvar Aalto, a famous Finnish designer, in the 1930's.
This chair called "nomad" was designed by Ilkka Suppanen in 1968. The simplistic design of this chair is very representative of Finnish design. The seamless curve of the seat very pleasing to the eye and I love the way the chair legs seems to come to a point and balance on this bar on the floor.
