Muuto - the Copenhagen-based design collective founded in 2006 - gets you. Rooted in Scandinavian design and characterised by endearing aesthetics, practicality, craftsmanship and honest expression, Muuto's ambition is to express new perspectives on modern design and to 'challenge the conventional perception of what a certain space should look like.' It works. And it works just for you.
You crave furniture with substance - furniture, lighting and homeware that's considerate of your lifestyle, your values - as well being furniture that looks good and is well-made. That's exactly what Muuto delivers; products for the home that make so much sense people wonder why it hasn't always been this way. What's more, all of Muuto's designs are unique, too. That's because they handpick leading contemporary designers who are strong interpreters of their philosophy and combine their talents to create a range of high-quality furniture that you won't see the likes of anywhere else.
Every single product is approached with the notion that beautiful, forward-thinking and characteristic design shouldn’t be confined to the limits of private space but rather a multitude of different environments. Which means every single product deserves a place in your home. Granted, you can't have it all, but you can have a few key pieces which is exactly what we've outlined below. So, scroll down to discover a few of our top picks and shop the entire Muuto collection here.
Design duo Anderssen & Vol have combined refined Nordic design and modern luxury to create the Two Seater Outline sofa for Muuto. With comfort being a top priority, the sofa’s deep seats and foam and feather filled body makes lounging a dream; the perfect sofa to sink into and relax at the end of a long day.
The Fluid Lamp's shape was inspired by a resting drop of water and it is the embodiment of Muuto’s aim to encourage new perspectives on modern design. The soft round shape and frosted matte glass exude a warm ambient light that adds character to any room. This lamp can be hung as a single feature or in clusters as a bespoke feature piece.
Like we said, Muuto's approach to design is a simple one - to create innovative and functional designs that people can't resist. It's safe to say they're pretty good at fulfilling that brief as this Around Small Coffee Table is one of those special types of furniture that you can build an interior around. A unique combination of functionality and elegance, the unique edge around the table top means that items on the table are safely and perfectly placed while also being the defining design quirk of the piece. It's perfect for grouping with the other tables in the Around collection such as the Light Grey Large Around Coffee Table or the Black Around Small Coffee Table.
Despite the fierce competition in the world of home lighting, the Muuto Rail Lamp is fast-becoming a modern classic in the brand's growing lighting catalogue. That's because it has a lot more character than most. With its three lamp shade formation, the Ambit Rail Lamp is perfect as a primary light source over a kitchen counter, dining table or even a bar setting. Its not only that level of versatility that gives it its edge, but its the marriage of the raw and delicate elements of Scandinavian interior design that makes it particularly special.
Filling your home with multi-functional furniture is a simple step to making your home a lot more liveable. This Split Dining Table is a case in point, as the solid oak wooden structure benefits from a long unique silhouette that is versatile and durable enough to be used for a range of functions. Seldom does a piece of modern design operate in the realms of both minimalist and innovation - yet this Split Table succeeds in doings so. As it elegantly combines the raw, luxurious appeal of solid timber with a functional, formal shape.
The Workshop is a simple, honest chair but it’s the refined details that makes it so unique to Muuto. The distinguished joints and visible wooden grains in the chair’s structure emphasise the craftsmanship and design elements of the Workshop Chair and echo Muuto’s ethos and consideration for aesthetics.
Simple Nordic design and playful character are what makes Muuto’s Pull Floor Lamp so unique. The composition of the oak wood and white lampshade give a sophisticated yet relaxed feel that is the perfect height and stature to light up any room in the house whether its placed next to a table, sofa or lounger.
