What do you get when you cross Nordic minimalism with Furniture?
A contraction of the words 'Nordic' and 'Furniture', NOFU is far more than just a clever name. It is handmade sustainable furniture that upholds the traditions of Scandinavian design with the addition of modern twists that make it perfectly suited to 21st Century living.
The concept of NOFU began in 2014, when Danish-born designer Bertil Stam began drawing up furniture designs for his own home. From here the collection blossomed, with many falling in love with the clean Scandinavian aesthetic of Stam's pieces. As a result, the initial sketches kept coming and thus NOFU was born.
Defined by clean lines, NOFU strikes the perfect balance between aesthetics and functionality, being both beautiful and practical with regards to durability and price. Crafted from ash wood, the pieces are PU-varnished to ensure a long life that will see the furniture passed from generation to generation.
It's easy to fall in love with the timeless feel of NOFU's Scandinavian designs. Here are a few pieces that will help add a touch of that beautiful aesthetic into your own interiors.
This beautiful piece exemplifies NOFU'S light touch and minimalistic accents. Perfect for the modern home, it's made from solid ash wood that can be stained in various colours to suit your interior styling.
A hand-brushed metal foot support embraces the legs of the chair in a streamlined metal ring, while the padded cushion offers comfort and support. These features demonstrate the incredible functionality of NOFU's modern designs, while still upholding the simple and timeless nature of Nordic style.
The centrepiece of every meal time, every dining table should be a joy to gather around. NOFU's Oval Dining Table, with its soft, rounded curves and classic design make it the perfect addition to the contemporary home.
Perfectly hand-crafted, each dining table tells a different story through the individual grain pattern outlined on its surface.
We love this quirky little piece that demonstrates NOFU's ability to combine practicality with superior design. This clothing rack offers the perfect storage solution for small-home and apartment living, featuring an in-built mirror, draws, hanger rail and shoe storage.
Not only functional the piece also acts as a feature in its own right, with its unique design unlike many other storage solutions on the market. A perky structure balanced out by clean, simple lines transforms a humble clothing rack into something with its own playful yet dignified personality.
Take a look and see how Curious Grace's professionals style this and other NOFU pieces here.

Filled with furniture exemplifying the beauty of Scandinavian design, each handmade piece can be customised to suit your interiors and lifestyle. Simple, elegant and full of character, NOFU really is furniture fit for every home.
