So here’s a long overdue post. I receive e-mails and comments all the time about Stockholm. Where to stay, what to do, where to eat and where to shop. When it comes to staying and eating I don’t have a clue I’m afraid but I do know of some nice shops so here goes.
* R.o.o.m at PUB – Fun and useful home accessories, design and furnishings in a range from the quite affordable to the expensive.
* 3rd floor furniture department at NK – Top of the line home décor.
* Illums Bolighus – Danish home goods and design store just opposite from NK.
* Svenskt Tenn – Classic Swedish Designs by the likes of Josef Frank and Estrid Ericson. It’s where I get my elephant fabrics among other things. Expensive but worth a look.
* Granit – Great for storage and home accessories in white, natural, grey and black.
* Åhléns City – The basement floor houses the home goods department, the fabrics department (great selection of quite affordable fabrics by the yard) and MUJI!
* Designtorget – Great selection of cool contemporary design.
* Lin o Fin – Lovely home décor store with mainly Swedish designs. Also my friend Sanna’s mom’s store.
* Iris Hantverk – Lovely brooms and brushes made by visually impaired craftsmen.
* Svensk Hemslöjd – Swedish traditional handicrafts.
* Ohlssons Tyger – Fabrics by the meter.
* 10 Gruppen – Bold prints on clothing and home accessories by a group of Swedish designers.
* Design House Stockholm – Swedish modern design. There's one a NK in the basement.
* Marimekko – Iconic Finnish designs.
* Kalikå – Cute and fun toys for kids.
