'As fourth graders, Aimee and Christiana would spend hours drawing outfits, creating pages for a catalog for their future clothing company. While life initially led both in different directions (though both oddly became lawyers for a stint), when an opportunity to start a business together arose in 2008, they remembered their days plotting and planning as young girls and jumped at the chance to bring an old dream to life. Hygge & West is founded upon the Danish concept of hygge (pronounced hoo-ga) that loosely translates to cozy, but means so much more. All of life’s small but wonderful moments can be described as hygge – curling up by the fireplace with a great book, long informal dinners with close friends, goodnight hugs with your children. We hope that our products help bring more hygge into our customers’ homes – creating a cozy, beautiful environment where small, everyday moments can be enjoyed.'
