SCANDIA DOWN AND SCANDIA HOME
The origins of Scandia Home date back to 1971 when a catalog company in Seattle introduced and sold a comforter-and-linens set called the "Scandia Down® Ensemble". It helped introduce the European way of dressing the bed to the American market.
By the 1980s, the company itself became Scandia Down® and flourished as more Americans began to appreciate the loftiness of superior European white goose down and the supreme softness of high thread count linens. Soon there were nearly 100 franchised Scandia Down Shops™ and authorized dealers of Scandia Down® products also across the country. In the 1990s, the Scandia Down logo became a trademark symbol of style and elegance for home furnishings. The highly regarded Scandia Limited Warranty was also introduced to support the company’s steadfast commitment to quality and workmanship.
In 2010, the Scandia Home® brand name was introduced to reflect the growing collection of lavish options for the bed, bath and home as it reached well beyond the core Scandia Down products.
Today Scandia Home stores and scandiahome.com are the headquarters for an array of Scandia Home branded products in addition to the entire Scandia Down line of down-filled products.
What has never changed over the years is the Scandia commitment to using only the world’s finest premium down fills, sumptuously woven fabrics and meticulous standards throughout all brand product lines. The Scandia Home personalized service and in-house experts are always available to help you choose the right products for your lifestyle, customize your selection, or arrange care of your Scandia Down products in specialized facilities.
