Bring Hygge Home for the Holidays

Hygge, pronounced (HOO-guh), is derived from a sixteenth-century Norwegian term, hugga, meaning “to comfort” or “to console.” Although there is no direct English translation, the term is widely recognized to simply mean “coziness,” and we are all about being cozy, no matter the season– and we love a little extra cozy during the cold winter months here in Massachusetts, especially around the holidays.

3) Pile on lush, plush, softness with sheepskin. Pop it on the floor or on the sofa, chair or bed.
