Last week was about the convenience of great online shopping. However, I have received many requests on a guide to the best interior design store in Copenhagen. If you are looking for adding a few Danish design items to your home, these 11 stores will make you spend some of your hard earned cash.
The two very talented girls Ditte Reckweg & Jelena Schou Nordentoft have for since 2002 run the shop Stilleben, which even its size taken in to consideration, has become quite a go-to shop in Copenhagen if you are looking for handcrafted ceramics and interior design from a range of more or less know designers. There are actually two Stilleben store in Copenhagen now, be sure to check out both.
If you are walking around Vesterbro, which is a must visinting Copenhagen in any case, then remember to stop in at Dansk Made For Rooms. The corner store offers a great mix of Scandinavian and international designers in its bright and airy space.
Russian born Natalia Enge moved to Copenhagen a couple of years ago with a big passion for design. She wanted her own design concept store. In the store, with interior designed by Anders Busk Faarborg, Novel Capinet Makers, you find brands like Please Wait to be Seated, Friends&Founders, Woud, BeDesign, Vivid Grey, Fogia and many more.
The store opened in December 2014 and has since been a must on my trip around the Copenhagen interior shops. The shop is created by Caroline Ost and Jacob Gubi, with clear references to Dimore Studio. A style a really love. Besides Gubi pieces you’ll find great vintages items, scented candles and an amazing spiral staircase.
Roomstore is full of a number of international design brands spaning from Italian Magis to French DCW. You’ll also find most of Tom Dixon’s lamps, furniture and accessories, and the newer Danish brand New Works. They even have a great coffee shop inside.
More a showroom than a shop really, but Frama is still worth a visit on your interior route around Copenhagen. There is always something new, as the Frama store is a favorite location for many international brands to showcase their pieces. Remember to pick up the Frama handsoap.
Hay House is of course the best place to see every piece produced by Hay, obviously. But the massive two-level store also has many rooms full of fun quirky items you didn’t know you needed. Remember to snap the iconic picture overlooking the Stork Fountain from 1894.
The mother ship of Danish interior design stores! If you only have time to visit one single store, this is it. A department store dedicated to the best of the best of Danish design, this is where you’ll find almost every mayor design brands under one roof. It is all the brands we know and love, so if you are looking for the not so well-known finds, this is not the place.
Personally I love passing by if I need anything for my kitchen, they have all the gear you need. You’ll also find many of their own designs, great ceramics (the only place you’ll pick up KH. Würtz collection), and lots of fabrics.
Also in Vesterbro is Anders Forup’s Danish design mayhem, specialized in leather goods and mid century furniture bargains, great lamps and lots of ceramics. Anders has such a great eye for spotting the best pieces among all the junk when he scouts through every flee market throughout the summer – I am sure his good looks doesn’t hurt making those goods deals.
Since Oliver Gustav opened his studio in a side street to famous Nyhavn, it has been a go to for every interior blogger. It is a mayhem for limited edition furniture and art pieces, all showcased in a beautifully decorated space.
