You may not think of Athens as an interior design hotspot, but this may change soon. The Greek capital boasts a few gems when it comes to interior design boutiques and stores. Here are some of the best spots you can shop your heart out in Athens.



Paraphernalia is a unique interior design shop opened by George Karras and Angela Koutroulaki in 2014. Stocking a vast collection of carefully curated items ranging from home and office wares, lighting, furniture, lighting, jewelry, and accessories, the store is a modern and sleek Ali Baba’s cave.


Shop, Store

DesignShop, founded in 2008 by Vassilis Zaroggas and Dimitra Fratzoglou, has both a store in Neo Psychiko and an online store to make interior design accessible to more people. Focusing on meaningful relationships with its customers, DesignShop features a plethora of brands and local designers such as We Design, It’s All Greek 2Me, and many more. The shop also works on various design projects, such as Zimari Bakery & Coffee in Panormou.

This interior design store in Kolonaki is a great reference point when it comes to shopping brands such as Artek, Culti, Secto Design, or Tom Dixon. Stop by Box Architects for high-quality furniture, lighting, kitchen and bathroom accessories, fabrics, and wallpapers. Box also has an extensive hotel products department and even a wedding registry. Brilliant, isn’t it?

Roma 5 Design opened in 1981 on Roma street and was probably the first store to introduce the philosophy of interior design to Greece. After 30 years, Roma 5 and owner Christos Papageorgiou are still pioneers in the field. Though it strongly prefers for European brands, Roma 5 also stocks a plethora of Scandinavian designers, focusing on newer generations. As such, it actively imports Marimekko, Lammhults, Artek, LK Hjelle, and even Nils Holger Moormann.

meet our Local Insider

2 years.


It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
