Quiet Furniture from a Spanish-Meets-Scandi Design Company

July 18, 2016

Melo, a company out of Dalarna, Sweden, makes furniture with all the elements we’ve come to associate with Scandinavian design: thoughtful, minimalistic, sustainable, and light-colored. While the design is decidedly Swedish—each piece is handmade to order in a village called Mockfjärd in Dalarna, four hours northwest of Stockholm—the founder of Melo hails from Spain. Carmelo Medina Tadeo (who goes by “Melo”) moved from Gran Canaria to Sweden to create the minimalist line. Here’s a look at some favorites.
