Mid century Scandinavian style furniture for less...

...from Tesco

Its not very often I do sponsored posts, but when Tesco e-mailed me their Autumn/Winter look book, I knew this was one I could get on board with! So although I've received a small compensation for writing this post, I can assure you that all opinions expressed here are truthful and entirely my own!

I have never been snobbish about buying furniture from supermarkets, I mean :If needs must!! But I'll be honest, only for purely functional things....stunning design is not something I've associated with supermarket furniture in the past. however the new Autumn/winter furniture and home ware collection from Tesco has completely changed my mind, and I am suitably impressed with their ranges of styles.

 I am impressed by the way they are bang on trend with their new collection, and in particular they have really managed to capture that Scandinavian look, with a nod to mid century design that I just love!!

If you, like me, love that Scandinavian interior design style with that retro feel, here's my picks from the Tesco Autumn/winter range that can help you achieve that look for less:

From top left:
The arc desklamp with it's modern lines, and just the right nod to MCD.
I love the Julianne range of sofas and chairs for a more nostalgic retro feel. 
This grey space dyed throw would be perfect for cosying up in this winter.
The modern Miami occasional table has a definite Scandinavian feel to it...
.... and the Cologne glass pendant shade encapsulates the ongoing copper trend perfectly!
The Stockholm range, comprising everything from this beautiful book case, via a beautiful coffee table to the functional sideboard in a stunning retro design in solid American white oak..... it is right on the money with the cut away handle detail!
 The Capri range of sofas and chairs, all handmade in the UK, with the perfect retro feel would make a great basis for furnishing any mid-century style living room.
Throw on a feather print cushion to tap into the current "feather" micro trend ,
and accessorize with some of the lush grey sheepskins (below), and you have a very cool and sophisticated Scandinavian style look for your living room this autumn

See what I mean?...Tesco's got style this Autumn!!
It's all down to their new philosophy of having a mid-range line of furniture and home accessories that tap into the current trends and at the same time focuses on quality!
As an avid bargain hunter, forever on a budget, this is great news to me:
it means I can actually afford to get the style I want, and be up to date with interior trends for less!

Finding things that have that clean, sleek look of the mid-20th century Scandinavian design takes some looking. I like what you've found here.

Thanks Jessie! You are right: that look has been notoriously hard to come by, but I think even the high street is getting in on this growing trend now, and that Scandinavian design is definitely having a moment...hopefully it is here to stay for a while!
