There is an important concept one needs to understand and embrace when living in Norway: being “koselig”. Most English speakers translate it to “cozy” but that term doesn’t even begin to cover everything that “koselig” can express.
Koselig is warmth and comfort. It’s being in the presence of loved ones in the evening. It’s laughing at home with your closest friends. It’s warming your feet by a soapstone stove while wearing knitted socks. It’s a feeling. It’s an action. It’s the atmosphere. Koselig is a lot of things. It’s cuddling with your significant other while sipping hot chocolate – or cuddling on the couch with chocolate ice cream, watching Netflix, whatever your thing is. It’s something as simple as the glow of a fire.
At Norsk Kleber we have been creating koselig for over 125 years with our elegant, simple, genuine soapstone stoves.
