Our Story

The Little Hygge Company was born in February 2020, a small business with our main aim of bringing the Hygge feeling into your home.

Are you new to the 'Hygge' concept?  Hygge (pronounced hue-guh) may be just a word, but has so much meaning behind it!  The Danish concept describes creating a mood of cosiness and comfort.  It is for one to acknowledge that feeling or moment through life; whether inside or outside, alone or surrounded by friends.  It's not something you adopt as such.. it's a feeling you create.  What's not to love about creating that warm and comforting feeling?

 

 

Kirsty Gipson the founder of The Little Hygge Company, has a passion for simple, understated home accessories and timeless pieces built well and to last.  She was inspired to create her own version of cosy, comforting homeware pieces; that project simplicity - taking inspiration from Scandinavian interiors.

 

"I've always admired simplistic styling in the home - like most of us I've found myself scrolling Pinterest until the early hours, my phone is full of mood boards of interior pieces I could never find in shops.

There's so many options, but I've found it hard to find those simple yet functional items that make a difference to the home at the right quality and price.  I was fortunate to have time on my side following a redundancy in 2020 so I started to explore different styles, and read about the Danish concept of Hygge; comfort, cosiness, warmth - everything a home should be to people, and that lightbulb just clicked. So I went for it, and I've never looked back since"
