For all fans of the This is Paper blog (created by a design studio of the same name), the This is Paper shop is a definite must-see. Its brightly lit minimalist interior houses a range of hand-made products, books and Japanese tea, which are neatly displayed on a floor-to-ceiling shelf by Polish custom furniture brand Tylko.
Located next to the cult Relaks café in the Mokotów district (south of the city centre), this long-time favourite is a great place to find unique gifts. Stocked with products from both Polish and international designers you will find everything from vintage furniture and wall art to homeware and toys.
This amazing concept store is part of the fashionable Mysia 3 shopping complex (which offers revolving pop ups, dining, art exhibitions, furniture and fashion stores all under one roof) in the heart of Warsaw. Its focus on books, design and beauty means you’ll find there everything from eco soy candles and niche perfume brands, to a sophisticated collection of books and magazines (spanning topics such as art, fashion, food and politics).
Stop by this lovely shop for homeware, kitchen accessories and children’s gifts. Nestled away in the small Oleandrów Street, the space stocks products mainly from French, Italian, British and Spanish brands (like Falcon, Le Creuset and Pujadas). Make sure you grab a freshly baked doughnut from the MOD restaurant/café nearby and try the delicious artisan beers at a pub called Inne Beczki, just down the street.
Located in the hip Soho Factory complex (home to Warsaw’s creative businesses and the Neon Museum), Magazyn Praga is a concept store adjacent to a design studio of the same name. Inside, you’ll find lighting, furniture and accessories from Polish artists and designers alongside more established international brands.
