The idea of Haakon came to life around the same time as our first son, also named Haakon, was born. We had moved to our new house in North London, and wanted to create a beautiful home for our little family. We wanted sleek and simple designs, solidly made and in modern colours. Stand-out pieces showing our individuality and that we had not purely furnished our home with things bought on the high street.
Growing up in Northern Norway, Anette learned to appreciate the importance of creating a ‘hyggelig’ and cosy home, filled with beautiful, yet simple, functional things. This is what lies at the heart of Scandinavian design, and the ethos behind everything you will find here at Haakon.
New product ideas and design inspiration stems from the changing needs of our growing family, and by dividing our time between the bustle of North London and the tranquillity of Northern Norway.
That is why we are proud to say that Haakon is the perfect blend of Scandinavian and British design.
We hope you will love our products as much as we do.
