What is Lagom?
"Not too much, not too little."
While Hygge is all about staying in with the loved ones, getting cosy and taking the time to enjoy a moment (whatever the weather), Lagom is all about moderation and finding balance in your everyday life.
The foundation of Lagom is creating a perfect balance, believing if you take just enough from life for yourself and you leave enough for others to be happy.
How does Lagom translate to the home?
Lagom defines a sustainable way of living.
Upcycling, recycling and using sustainable materials is the way to enjoy the home comforts you love, without taking too much from the planet.
Taking eco-factors into consideration for your home and interiors decisions is a big part of the Swedish lifestyle concept.
