From dreamy velvet furniture to handcrafted ceramics, Att Pynta has quickly become the go-to destination for Scandi-obsessed interiors fiends. Founders, Kai Price & Amanda Nelson met while working in the fashion industry and bonded over their shared love of the Scandinavian aesthetic. The duo wanted to create a site that offered contemporary affordable homewares as well as inspirational ideas and decided to launch Att Pynta in 2014. We caught up with the Peckham-based friends over a cuppa to find out what they enjoy the most about running their own business and what they want to achieve in the next year.
