The art of staying inside and enjoying it
Today’s gift guide is much influenced by the Scandinavian way of living. But first, let’s talk about Cocooning. Faith Popcorn – futurist and consultant – coined the term already back in 1981. She described the trend as the act of staying inside with a desire for retreating to the privacy of one’s home. Sounds a bit bumpy, but what it means is a simple longing we all feel when the days get darker: to snuggle up on the couch with a good book and a hot cup of tea. Surrounded by loungy wooden furnitures, cozy blankets and candles with the scent of rosewood. Sounds familiar? I thought as much!
In Scandinavia, where darkness is just a way of life, the Cocooning trend is cultivated in the most elegant and chic way. Hence, the Scandinavian minimalism was and still is here to stay and so is Cocooning. For our gift guide we collected all the things that make a day at home the most precious gift.
