Lagom Interior Design Ideas



“Just the right amount”. That’s the literal translation of Scandi living sensation Lagom – an interior trend that’s taken the UK by storm. Lagom, in complete contrast to everything it represents, arrived on our décor scene in an emphatic manner. Crashing into interiors all across the country with astonishing abruptness, Lagom became the home décor buzzword almost immediately after showing its face – and its popularity has remained rigidly intact.

Lagom FAQs 

Whether you’ve heard the hype about Lagom and are eager to understand what all the fuss is about, or you simply don’t have the foggiest idea of what the trend involves, you’ve come to the right place. Our FAQs answer key questions about Lagom and give all the information on this Scandinavian inspiration you could possibly need to know.

  1. What is Lagom?

  2. Do you remember the Hygge trend that swamped Britain a few years back? The décor style that brought a fresh brand of cosiness to every room? Well, Lagom is like Hygge’s understated, sophisticated, more frugal cousin. Instead of overdoing it, Lagom is more interested in the opposite – taking the approach that just enough is more than enough. Everybody can benefit from being a bit more balanced, and that’s exactly what Lagom is all about: installing a balanced environment through subtle, minimalist design.

  3. Where did Lagom come from?

  4. The origins of Lagom can be traced to Sweden – where the ethos of this trend is widely considered to be representative of this country’s consciousness: calm, composed, and well-adjusted. The word Lagom can be applied to anything over in Scandinavia, but was largely unheard of in Britain until 2017 – when humble, orderly furnishings (reflective of the Lagom mindset) suddenly became rather popular.

  5. How do I integrate Lagom into my home?

  6. A lot of people see Lagom as a lifestyle rather than a mere décor trend: making the most of what you already have. With this in mind, one of the best ways to integrate Lagom into your home involves prioritising “reusability”. Eco-friendly light bulbs, recycling boxes, handmade knitwear, and wooden clothes racks are all classic staples of a typical Lagom interior.

  7. What season is best for Lagom?

  8. The saying goes, Lagom is a lifestyle, not a trend. It's all about the minimalist and functionality of Lagom that makes it so popular. The simplicity of Lagom renders it a great choice for any time of year, although the casual chairs, rustic lamp shades, and minimalist tables makes this look particularly effective during months with plenty of natural sunlight.

  9. What Lagom products do you have for purchase?

  10. Cuckooland is home to a vast array of Lagom-style products, including rugs, tables, planters, lights, seating, and accessories that have been crafted with simplicity and elegance in mind. You can also bring Lagom to your garden area too, with outdoor products like planters and hammocks helping you to instill that laid back, composed look.
