Iknow many Danes like candles very much .How doyou conceive this?
Mr. Hansen: Candle is something we use alot, because they are giving you a feeling of peace. When you come home from abusy day, you'd like to sit here with your wife, and we talk together and enjoy，seeing what's going onoutside and enjoying ourselves inside. You can have candles placed in thewindow which is normally very nice, because you can see them from outside too. Andthere are people passing outside and they'll enjoy looking and seeing how weare actually how closely and how nive we have in here.
What kind of light , will make youfeel calm and happy?
The light that comesout of the bulb with nice shade that gives you very dim light, not the bright.This is very soft, and it gives you a soft feeling and quietness.
And often it's alittle yellow.
It's a little yellow, yes. That's good for eyesas well.
The most used area we live in is actually thekitchen. Because in the kitchen, you can make the food and we can sit together.we can help each other making the food. and I can make some drink, and in Saturdayevening
Yes, it's nice to be together in kitchen, whenthe children are at home, they are working in different areas. We used to havea dog, it was also there. So we were all together, and then you have afantastic room for it in the kitchen.
I remind of a Chinese adage：Only love or good food must not be letdown.
And that is actually the definition of hygge, itis well-being and well-feeling, it is culture, it is the love for the peoplethey are family, and it's good food and wine. You live a nice life and you canrelax , put the whole day behind you, and you don't think too much of all thedifficulties and all the things you've been through.
