Cozy Living by Lúka
The home collection Cozy Living by Lúka is about cozy atmosphere, inner peace and tranquility. The products are environmentally friendly and sustainable, they are manufactured locally in Iceland and offer an integrated overall look for the home. Cozy Living by Lúka helps us to experience quality moments, whether by ourselves or in the company of others. The collection was first premiered at DesignMarch 2019 and has since been in continuous development. The products we offer are for example candlesticks, blankets, pallets and serving trays, mirrors, tables, shelves and mobiles. The items are made from natural raw materials such as birch, oak and wool, but also steel, concrete, glass and recycled plastic. Lúka works with soothing colors, where brown tones are predominant along with red, yellow, blue and gray. The shapes and the patterns in the collection are all derived from the company logo, but the circular shape is included as it is the perfect shape.
