The website was set up by Toni Kay, who comes from Denmark, but has lived in London for many years. She says: “Being Danish, I suppose it’s natural that I should be drawn to Nordic design and my home reflects this taste. I have selected pieces for this website which have strong themes from nature with cool, calming colours. I have also chosen certain designs for their appreciation of the animal world, their eco credentials and use of recycled materials.”
The animal and natural theme within www.skandivis.co.uk is clear to see.
