SCANDINAVIAN STYLE

Imagine a beautiful beach where two seas crash together, joining two hues of brisk water in stark contrast. Crisp air swirls around the rocky shores and gorgeous light filters through lush, gray clouds. This is Scandinavia, the land of our heritage. Meet the Liljenquist sisters: Marianne, Angela, Allison, Natalie. We grew up learning about and loving our Danish ancestry and culture. Our Grandma Marge cooked us aebleskiver and instilled in us the sensible, light-infused, Scandinavian aesthetic. Whether it be in clothing, furniture, or architecture, we came to love the clean lines, neutral colors, fabulous textures, and contrast between light and dark found in Scandinavian design. Our Mom and Dad taught us to work hard and to appreciate beautiful music, inspiring art, and great clothes. We all took a turn working at our family’s clothing store and from this experience, we discovered our passion: finding and creating intriguing style influenced by our love for Scandinavian design. Baltic Born is a culmination of everything we adore—so much more than just apparel—and we can’t wait to share our Scandinavian lifestyle with you. Join us on our journey to celebrate our beloved Scandinavian-inspired lifestyle. Let’s hygge!
