Skandinavia Offers Affordable, Simple Luxury Furniture with Heart
Skandinavia is no ordinary furniture store. We are committed to a different kind of furniture experience, that offers fine furniture that will last for years to come but that also offers the practicality and affordability that today’s buyers want. For nearly four decades, we have been offering Texas a small slice of Scandanavian beauty and simplicity. Let us do it for you as well!
Family Owned Luxury Furniture
The doors to Skandinavia opened in 1971 as a family business led by Bob and Mary Blitch. After returning from a trip to Europe, absolutely in love with the simple, beautifully designed, and affordable furnishings that they had purchased for their Austin home. Their own passion for Scandanavian design, and the lack of similar options available in their hometown, showed them that they had an opportunity to do something extraordinary in the luxury furniture market. Everyone wants beauty and functionality, and the Blitch family decided that it was their mission to provide that to their Texas friends and neighbors.
Skandanavia quickly found a home in a storefront on what would become “Furniture Row,” filled with stunning pieces: gorgeous teak bedrooms, practical yet elegant dining rooms, and stunning modular units. It wasn’t long before Austin saw what Bob and Mary had seen—Scandinavian design and practicality was exactly what Texas design needed. For the next 34 years, Bob and Mary Blitch led Skandinavia with passion and devotion, helping to build the luxury furniture market in Austin.
Taking Luxury Furniture to the Next Level
In 2005, Bob and Mary Blitch passed the metaphorical torch to Erika and Shawn Olson, selling Skandinavia to a new set of enthusiastic, energetic owners. The Olsons were ready—having spent their lives in the furniture business, they were excited to bring design, quality, and value to the Texas fine furniture landscape. They have searched for the best quality furniture and have found it right here in the United States. More than fifty percent of the Skandinavian collection is built here in the United States, using the most talented craftsmen and the most environmentally sound manufacturing principles. Buying American-made products helps us not only support the economy but also reduce our carbon footprint, while still providing the best quality luxury furniture on the market today. We are honored to support the American craftsmanship and heart behind those who share our passion for this industry.
