If you come to Stockholm Sweden you have to visit Svenskt Tenn with Josef Frank's lovely furniture and fabrics.
Were in Sweden? Malmö, Stockholm or Gothenburg?
Copenhagen - Luftkastellet - fun fake beach hip barIllums Bolighus - Danish furnitureand ofcourse: (furnished the Modern rastaurant)http://www.gubi.dk/there is a also a great Danish Design Centrehttp://www.ddc.dk/worth checking out and a lot of interesting modern architecture (Daniel Liebeskind - Jewish Museum, etc)
Copenhagen, Malmö and Stockholm, probably. Thanks for the ideas!
I'm from Iceland and I'm afraid there aren't too many design shops here. There is Epal, which is the biggest one. I recommend Aurum Jewelery shop www.aurum.is which sells absolutely beautiful jewelry. There are a few shops downtown that sell design and clothes by young designers also (on laugarvegur) the main shopping street.Ragnheidurwww.umemi.comwww.fridayfans.com
Along this Scandi thread, does anyone know how hard it is to get from the train station in Malmo to see Calatrava's Turning Torso? TIA!
In Iceland head to:Kokka - kitchen stuff but still way coolhttp://kokka.isKirsuberjatréð (Kirsu berry tree) - some funky design finds herehttp://www.kirs.is-Doug
The Kulturhuset in Stockholm is a great store, but it's more like a design center where they sell loads of amazing crafts made by local stockholm designers. They have such great stuff and it's actually quite cheap. Also, if you're looking for a good record shop Pet Sounds is fantastic. This is the site for the Kulturhuset: http://www.kulturhuset.stockholm.se/
Its not difficult to get to the turning Torso, Malmö have a really cheap Taxi system so its probably not that expensive to take a cab back and forth either. Stockholm must see's in furnishing and interior design:1. Designtorget - by Kulturhuset at Sergels Torg2. The One - Hamngatan 273. Gusto Store - Riddargatan 104. R.O.O.M - Alströmergatan 205. David Design - Nybrogatan 76. Nitty Gritty - Krukmakargatan 267. Posh Living - Sveavägen 418. Bo Concept - Drottninggatan 759. La Ninja - Kungsholmen10. Granit - HötorgetAlsohttp://www.svenskttenn.se/http://www.grandpa.se/http://www.planett.se/Hemhttp://www.lagerhaus.sehttp://www.wohnzimmer.seIn Malmö:David Design!www.daviddesign.se
in Reykjavik most of the best shops are on or around Laugavegur (the main shopping street).I love the previously mentioned Aurum and Kokka but I also recommend Trilogia (trilogia.is), Kisan (kisan.is), Nonnabud (dead.hexia.net), KronKron, IÐA and the tiny gift-shop at the National museum of Iceland.-and Reykjavik is expensive so ask for a tax refund check!LG
In Copenhagen, there is also a wonderful shop called R.O.O.M. in Nørregade 12.
Well first off there is Designtorget that have stores in the 3 major cities. Then there's David design in STHLM & Malmö STHLM's most exclusive store must be Nordiska Galleriet, at Nyrbogatan 11 in ÖstermalnSTHLM has a street-market too: STREET The Architect Museum in STHLM has a great show about the great swedish designer Bruno Mathsson until August 27th 2006.Form/Design Center in Malmö (both a great store & museum) -- -- -- -- --STHLM has some good antique/2:nd hand design-stores too;JacksonsTyska brinken 20Wigerdahls Värld (website in swedish only ) Krukmakargatan 14,Bacchus Antik (website in swedish only ) Upplandsgatan 46ModernityÖstermalmstorg --Malmö has one good antique store I can think of right now Moderna Möbelklassiker-- -- -- --STHLM also has a great artbook-store Konst-ig at Sergels Torg (right next to one of Stockholm's four Designtorget) -- -- -- -- --if there are any questions, e-mail me at klockarp(a)home.se - David
Reykjavik shopping tips,a pretty comprehensive review of the main shopping draggallery ksk (local ceramic artist studio and shop -- love the porcelain birds!)Laugavegur is currently undergoing changes as it now controversial plans are in place -and in some spots in motion- to tear down some of the charming old buildings and replace them with more "modern" shopping centers etc... so you may see some empty buildings slated for demolition :( )*ditto on Reykjavik being expensive (especially with the horrible exchange rate!) make sure to get tax refund checks,hope you get some good weather and enjoy your stay!
Copenhagen is a designer's paradise:Illums Bolighus - definitely!Georg Jensen - gorgeous stuff: The entire shopping district called Strøget in downtown Copenhagen is filled with cool spots—stores, restaurants, tourist traps. The danish are so friendly and everyone speaks english, happily.If you can get outside of the city, go north Helsingor on the north coast of Zealand... you can see across to Sweden and meet a bunch of swedish folk coming over to Denmark to buy alcohol.In between Copenhagen and Helsingor, stop in at the Louisana (Museum of Modern Art http://www.louisiana.dk/)in Humlebæk. It's on the same train line to Helsingor.
Wow! Thanks for all the AMAZING tips, everyone. My credit cards and digital camera are warmed up and ready to go. =)
In Stockholm, check out Apslund (it's right near Ostermalm stop, not sure of the street name) and the bunch of other darling shops around there. Also try the Moderna Museet store. Both carry Pia Wallen stuff which I absolutely love (and at great prices compared to the US!)
The best tips are to be found on these sites -http://camillaengman.com and http://www.karineriksson.se/blog/ Karin's been posting phenon Copehagen tips!Have fun! Scandanivia rocks!
