Hygge (pronounced hue-gah) is a Danish concept that denotes the ‘art of creating intimacy’ and has become a popular phrase to describe the absence of anything annoying or emotionally overwhelming and taking pleasure from the presence of gentle, soothing things.
With our extremely fast paced modern lifestyle hygge is the perfect antidote to stress, giving us the opportunity to re-connect, slow down and enjoy the simple pleasures that life has to offer. Winter is the most hygge time of year. It epitomises candles, woven textiles, pastries, wood fires, rugs, lattes with milk-foam hearts, and a warm fireplace. Relaxing at home with friends and family should be done in comfort and the perfect sofa goes a long way to ensure that you make the most of your hygge moments. The Magellan collection from Mobelli Furniture + Living is a modern interpretation of the classic chesterfield couch, creating a contemporary but timeless centrepiece for your living space. When it comes to relaxation, comfort is paramount and the Magellan delivers in style.Upholstered in a Belgian micro-fibre fabric, the sofa is very tactile and soft to the touch. The modern material is water and even ink resistant making it easy to clean and durable, guaranteeing you worry-free moments to find joy with your family. The Magellan collection also has a generously proportioned armchair with which you can create the perfect hygge space for your friends and family to slow down and connect in. Here are five ways to find your hygge while relaxing on the sofa this autumn and winter:
- Seek simplicity – minimalize clutter to keep your mind in the moment.
- Light a candle (or ten) – create a warm visual environment filled with soft light.
- Go green – bring nature into your home with some monochrome house plants.
- Disconnect – switch off digital devices and try to be fully present.
- Embrace change – cherish the moment by remembering this cosy refuge will end.
