Hi! I'm back with an unboxing of a new (to me) box, Norlii for August 2021. Norlii is a bi-monthly Scandinavian subscription box service that curates unique, elegant home decor and lifestyle items to help you get your Hygge on. Check out what was in this box and get your own with an exclusive 20% off coupon code!

About Norlii

Each box is themed and looking at some of their past boxes, you could get glass or stoneware, cooking items, bath & body, food & drink, bedding, or decor. Fun!

What is the Norlii style?

The Scandinavian style is unique and celebrated for the elegant, simple line, high quality, and magnificent coziness we call Hygge. The essential components we love to capture in all boxes are: 
  1. Nature - Nature is present in the Scandinavian interior. Natural materials such as ceramics, wood, wool, cotton, linen, and candles are classics in the Scandinavian interior. Nature looks and feels fantastic.
  2. Simplicity - The simple line design and love for soft textiles help create an elegant and relaxed home. We aim to maintain consistency in the interior style, for an eye-catching and inviting home. We have a passion for the neutral color scheme and high-quality design accessories.
  3. Hygge - The Scandinavian decoration originates from the cold north, and maybe that is why Hygge has become such a gamechanger in Scandinavia. The focus of feeling good is present in every corner of a Scandinavian home: the candlelights, the soft textiles, the comfort foods combined in the stringent clean-lined design. 

Let's unbox it!

It comes nicely packaged with a card on top that gives you details and pricing on each item inside. This box's theme is Gather Together.

First out are a set of two Lyngby 6.5cm Candle Holders in Smoked Glass ($20).

"Porcelænsfabrikken Danmark specialized in handmade porcelain, but glass and glass art have also played an important role in the company’s history. Founded by the experienced glass wholesalers Holst & Knudsen, the factory’s roots in glass art dates back to 1904. As a tribute to the glass heritage, we have launched the original Lyngby Candle 6.5 cm in glass, which harmoniously expands our design DNA and Lyngby Candle collection in porcelain.

Create an extra cozy or romantic atmosphere at home with this fine tealight holder in smoked glass – a cool autumn and winter color that matches the Lyngby vase Smoked glass 20 cm."

These candleholders are the perfect size for tealights or small votives and the glass is beautiful. I love the smoked grey color and they have a nice weight to them.

"The Orient carafe and glass are made of hand-blown colored glass. With a reference to Tivoli’s many oriental details in architecture, materials, and colors, the curved design has a familiar and friendly expression."

This water carafe is a great way to make sure your guests stay hydrated this summer. Norlii suggests adding in mint leaves and that sounds wonderful! This grey glass carafe goes well with the candle holders without being matchy-matchy.

"The Basic series consists of four items. The designer’s aim was to cut out all unnecessary details and gimmicks in order to focus on the raw form and basic function. The organic shapes and the finish add warmth and nostalgia to the design and soften the expression.

Basic is light and comfortable to hold and the satin-like surface ensures that the wine flows easily. The surface has been titanium-treated, making it extra durable. Pour a tasty glass of wine for yourself and your friends using this unique family of wine accessories."

This is a simple, but gorgeous, corkscrew. The satin bronze finish is stunning and there's no doubt how to operate it. Some of the newest corkscrews are unnecessarily complicated. I want the whole collection now!

Last out is a 108cm x 70cm Organic by Bitz / Södahl Bistro Apron in Grey/Black ($25).

"The ORGANIC by BITZ / Södahl series are textiles in the well-known good quality from Södahl in 100% GOTS-certified organic materials that match the colors in the BITZ tableware and provide a number of fine combination options. 

The products give new life to both the kitchen and the table, and are in the best and most sustainable quality. The table can be decorated with different plates and napkins in many colors, or in just one, and the kitchen can be easily renewed with several nice colors."

I actually love this type of apron, but it's hard to find here. I've only ever seen them while working in a restaurant or bar. This one is in a lovely grey organic cotton and is very long! I know I'll get lots of use out of it!

That was the August 2021 Norlii box. I really love getting home decor in subscription boxes but you never know if it will be your style. Everything here is just my style, simple and clean with a twist, so I really enjoyed unboxing this one! 

This box was very on-theme with items to help you entertain guests or have a quiet meal at home. I love how everything is strictly useful and beautiful. It's a very Scandinavian concept that I feel that a lot of people are flocking to after years of over-the-top and glam. 

The value of this box was $145 and everything was of excellent quality. I think I'm most surprised that I received 3 glass items all the way from Denmark with no breaks (the Postal Service has not been kind lately). I absolutely enjoyed getting this box!

Thanks to Norlii, I've got an exclusive coupon code just for my readers!
