The Scandinavian hygge lifestyle is taking the world by storm
This segment originally aired on Feb. 9, 2017, on VICE News Tonight on HBO.
Hygge is a Danish term defined as “a quality of coziness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being.” In the past year, this concept of Scandinavian coziness has made inroads with an international audience.
At least six books about hygge were published in the United States this year, with more to come in 2017. The author of the international best-seller “The Little Book of Hygge,” Meik Wiking, takes VICE News on a hygge tour of Copenhagen coffee shops, library gardens, and wine bars that epitomize the lifestyle trend.
