From the Hygge Life showroom in Colorado, and from artisans around the West, these inviting home goods set the mood for contentment and community.
It makes sense that most of the products Alexandra Gove and Koen van Renswoude carry at their Hygge Life showroom in Vail, Colorado, are made in Europe. After all, the concept of hygge — which emphasizes coziness, contentment, and community as a welcoming way of life — is a Danish import that happens to have taken the comfort-starved world by storm.
Since setting up in the U.S. after meeting in Vail and then traveling around Europe, the couple have also been discovering some U.S.-based makers who prize the handmade vibe that characterizes the well-being philosophy.
Think pillows, throws, sheepskins, candles. Set — and shop — the mood. Visit hyggelife.com for more inspiration.
Hangai Mountain Textiles is an Aspen-based company that creates its own designs and has its yak and cashmere blankets made in Mongolia.
