Lagom, the road to happiness

| Designbest editorial staff

L

agom är bäst is a famous Swedish saying that literally translates as: “everything in moderation”. Lagom represents a road to happiness as it encourages you to show restraint in everyday life, and this includes the clothes you wear, how you behave in public and how you decorate your home. A home in lagom-style is decorated in natural materials like stone and timber, simple yet comfortable pieces especially designed to live in harmony, blending function with sentimental values. The theory behind this can be found in a book that has become a recent worldwide bestseller: "Lagom” by the Swedish photographer and writer Lola A. Åkerström, who illustrates all the steps you can take to put lagom into practice.
