Walnut Creek, California (EastBayDaily) — YLiving is pleased to announce the launch of an extensive range of furniture and lighting from Muuto. Muuto, whose name is a variation of the Finnish word for new perspective, is a leading Scandinavian brand that features a full range of contemporary chairs, sofas, storage, cabinets, consoles, desks, and lighting. Drawing on top design talent in Scandinavia, Muuto is known for its unique take on everyday objects.
“So far, a lot of our products have not been available in the U.S.,” says Muuto founder, Kristian Byrge. “We are very happy that we now can offer a wider selection of our assortment, and YLiving is the first to make it available across the United States.”
YLiving offers more than 30 Muuto designs in pleasing pale palettes and finishes such as laminate and wood to complement an array of interiors.
Some of the distinctive designs include:
Oslo 3-Seater—This airy sofa features a light and inviting appearance, without compromising on comfort.
Bell Lamp— This large fixture instantly creates a space within a space and the soft felt shade will enhance acoustics.
Nerd Chair—An all-wood chair with signature Scandinavian design details. Comes in natural oak or lacquered ash wood.
“We’re so excited to be the U.S. home for such a broad collection of Muuto’s products,” says YLiving general manager Jennifer Baceda. “I know our customers will appreciate this kind of access to a beautiful Scandinavian sensibility.”
