Scandinavian style has some unmistakable characteristics. The light wood finishes and clean lines. The modern touches and thoughtful, inviting decor. The geometric designs that are minimal yet oh-so-cool. And of course, the plush textures that lend a feeling of hygge to any space.

To complete this look, we think that Scandinavian rugs are definitely in order. When shopping for a Nordic-inspired rug, keep your eye out for sumptuous, soft textures, neutral colors, and abstract, linear designs.
