Our homes like to court an air of Nordic wonder, especially when we fill them with items hewn from a forest, one that’s dappled in an enchanting Northern light. The essence of Scandi-inspired furnishing is well and truly alive in De Eekhoorn’s chairs, beds and storage units, which energise the fastest growing décor trend in the world.
This manufacturer, based in the rural heart of the Netherlands, doesn’t beat around the bush when it comes to the chic of the Low Countries! Using blacks, whites, creams and gentle greys as a springboard, their furniture can instil your rooms with a crisp, glacial sense of space. The brand is an epitome of Scandi design, using the woodland materials on its doorstep to build strong, impeccable items. Check out their oak tables if you’re in doubt, or the minimal trolley shelves with bare metal frames – each item is polished with the splendour of sustainable living.
Clever storage solutions are further proof that De Eekhoorn knows what it’s doing: precisely, turning the regalia of a room centrepiece back towards the land, and seeing what amazing results can be reaped from it. Maybe hallway storage is something you’re craving, or you’re just constantly hunting for the next best slice of Scandi genius. Whatever the case, Cuckooland has the lockers, chests and display shelves to help you with storage solutions and your tidying routine. But the brand really flourishes in the bedroom, providing kids and adults with clean uncluttered wintry décor to sink into after a long day. Buying a child’s bed has rarely been a safer bet, as these models – both trundle and cabin-style – will last your youngster up to their teens. Why not complement their room with wall art for an even greater, pastel-shaded effect, bringing the Nordic winds and cool Scandi style to their favourite place.
We’re sounding the De Eekhoorn for affordable luxury, straight from the summit of Europe! Dive in and explore our full collection to master the Scandi trend in your home.
De Eekhoorn has many strings to its bow, expressing a passion for sturdy, contemporary furniture in more ways than one. We’re besotted with two brands in particular within the De Eekhoorn family, which feature heavily on our site:
Any Cuckooland aficionados will have seen Woood products before, scattered across our popular home picks. Based on a concept of simplicity and industrial fashion – the more durable end of the Scandi scale – the brand is true to its name, dealing mainly in wooden drawers, cabinets and children's beds. Steel is also a feature, but it’s modulated to be fairly dark, sitting nicely in contrast to paler aspects of your décor. Flat-packed and easy to assemble, these items combine quality materials with price-conscious design.
Sitting alongside Woood, quite literally, is the Be Pure Home collection, a resplendent source of chairs and lighting fixtures. The emphasis is more on gluing rural and urban components into a single piece, and seeing what’s born out of it. Trolleys, locker cabinets and coffee tables join the subtler facets of the Be Pure identity, bringing your storage capacity up to snuff, or creating a great atmosphere for socialising. Slightly more subtle than its sister brand, we recommend this label for homes that thrive in contemporary light, playing with shading techniques through beautiful furnishings.
With so many awe-inducing products falling under the Woood and Be Pure Home banner, you might be struggling to narrow down your options. Thankfully, De Eekhoorn has a plethora of ranges to choose from, making it easy to set the tone for any room.
Our kids’ imaginations need inspiration – a tangible force in the real world that can spark their games into overdrive. Teepee products take their cue from prairies and open acres of grassland, mixing Native American culture with distinctly European craftsmanship. The cabin bed, perhaps Teepee’s crowning achievement, leaves spaces free for a child’s arms and legs to sway out of the bed frame. It gives the sensation of sleeping under the stars, with or without birdsong in the distance!
Quite self-explanatory, this: De Eekhoorn have taken the sneaky storage applications of a vintage locker, and infused them through morsels of child-friendly furniture. So we have an industrial locker, doing what it says on the tin – packing away books, bags and equipment that any kiddie wink should be coveting. But you’ll also find benches and beds with locker drawers for handy storage. With a Locker piece, you have the advantage of never being far from your keepsakes, as they’re dotted amongst smart, steel items that never fall out of favour.
Embodying the sharpest sense of a snow-filled morning, the Perpignan range is exclusively white, and the clarity is a breath of fresh air for any home. Pine wood forms the crux of their appeal, as smooth and spotless as melted butter. Specific care has been paid to handle design, which jumps out from the purity of the main furniture body. For statement furniture, look no further.
As the second locker-centric name on our list, Max can’t help but put its own stamp on schoolboy style, reinstating proper, dependable storage in the modern bedroom. Everything in this collection is squat, spindly or ridged with the impressions of a super-cool classroom. The aesthetic even spreads to bedside tables, an often neglected room addition that nevertheless reclaims some heft, thanks to Max’s inventive eye. Ideal for interiors that embrace classic Scandi colours like creams and greys.
What strides arm-in-arm alongside white colour tones? Well, if you’re browsing for Scandi goodness, there’s nothing quite like a peaceful, mountainous lick of pastel green to complement your current interior. Thankfully, the Nikki selection has both sets of colouring up for grabs, providing insight into what makes the Woood branch of De Eekhoorn tick. It’s replete with tall, commanding wardrobes, gorgeous children’s desks, and day beds that slip a trundle drawer out when required. By setting the green/white coupling in motion, your space will flourish like a winter forest.
The Dennis range takes pride in its day beds, offering quality sleep solutions that can support a new head whenever mates come to stay. The minimal, compact imprint of these items is accompanied by storage boxes and chests of drawers, both of which see a child all the way to teenagehood. Since a furniture investment should lay its sights on the years ahead, Dennis is a sound choice for safeguarding your youngster’s room, especially when they lean towards refinement.
Appropriately, we’re rounding things off with the Connect family of products, which absorb some of the fashions we’ve already seen. It’s a veritable mosaic of builds and textures: highlights include black, herringbone wood for a wardrobe setup, along with semi-locker structures that eschew metal for rusticity. As a last wave of the De Eekhoorn wand, Connect models have under-drawers beneath their dresser panels, enlarging your storage repertoire. A combo of drawers and open cabinets, too, make for an airy, expansive feel to what this manufacturer is capable of.
Sounding in the distance of your Scandi landscape, De Eekhoorn are the preeminent masters of cutting-edge furniture for children, teenagers and adults. Explore De Eekhoorn for yourself to see what else is hiding in those snow-frosted hills. Or, if you’re needing a friendly helping hand, call our support team on 44 (0) 1305 231 231 – they’re always on-point with some great purchase ideas!
The treehouse beds are pure magic.
The beds create a fairytale atmosphere and the construction is solid, a substantial piece of furniture. It was well worth the effort to import from Europe,
there is nothing like them that I could find in the US.
