Behind the name - Hygge defined

The art of Hygge (pronounced hue-gah) is a Danish term meaning "wellbeing", a feeling or mood that comes from taking genuine pleasure in making ordinary, everyday moments more meaningful, beautiful or special. 

Some refer to hygge as an “art of creating intimacy” (either with yourself, friends and your home). While there’s no one English word to describe hygge, several can be used interchangeably to describe the idea of hygge such as coziness, charm, happiness, familiarity, comfort, reassurance, kinship, and simpleness. Hygge is about being present and recognizing (and enjoying) the moment.

The idea is to relax and feel as at-home as possible, forgetting life's worries. The goal: more hospitality, more warmth, more respect for each other and the environments we share.
