The Little Book of Lykke Book Launch
@Inform Interiors

November 2
5 to 7pm

Join Inform on November 2nd from 5 to 7pm at the 50 Water St showroom as they welcome Meik Wiking, author of The Little Book of Hygge and The Little Book of Lykke.

By now many are familiar with hygge, the Danish concept of cosiness that has become an international phenomenon in the past few years, largely thanks to Meik’s book on the topic. But what is lykke? Pronounced luu-kah, it’s the Danish word for happiness. Danes have been shown to be the happiest people in the world, and Meik definitely fits that bill, as the CEO of The Happiness Research Institute in Copenhagen. In this witty and informative book, Meik goes beyond the woolly socks and warm beverages of hygge to get at what really makes Danes so happy, and what the rest of the world can learn from them.

RSVP is required for this event, please fill out this form to attend.
