In Denmark, the word hygge (pronounced hoo-gah) conjures up an abstract notion of coziness, harmony, intimacy, and togetherness. Danes live and die by this concept, and they’re consistently named some of the happiest people on earth. They’re also design fanatics, although hygge—said to originate from the archaic Norwegian word hugge, translating roughly to “hug”—is more of a feeling than an aesthetic. It connotes a relaxed, mindful, egalitarian lifestyle—made easier with glowing candlelight, a steaming mug, and a snug throw.
