Last night we enjoyed dinner at the beautiful Carl Hansen showroom in Clerkenwell and were joined by some wonderful friends and talented designers. There was delicious food provided by Snaps and Rye who serve contemporary Danish food with authentic Scandinavian flavours.
The whole night was a true exercise in hygge, a term that is integral to Danish culture. Tricky to translate into other languages its believed to be the reason why Denmark has been named the happiest country in the world for the last 40 years. It can best be explained as a cosy atmosphere where all your senses are evoked by feeling good. Good company, friends, candlelights, it’s a time or place where you have no worries, you are just really content.
Thanks for the hygge Carl Hansen!
