With 11 stores around Sweden all stocking unique products, Design Torget is the place to discover up-and-coming Swedish designers who are working with everything from furniture to serving trays to jewellery. Designers submit their creations to a monthly jury, who then choose the best of the best. The stock is continually changing, so you never know what you’ll find here.
They might be from Denmark but Illums Bolighus is one of the best examples of that clean modern Scandi style so beloved up in the north of Europe. The central Stockholm shops stocks everything needed for the well-designed home, from tea cups to sofas – and everything is from one of the three Scandinavian countries.
Nordiska Galleriet is the ultimate in Stockholm design shops, with an extensive range of high-end interior design from both Sweden and around the globe. You don’t just buy a sofa here – you make a design investment, one that you will treasure and pass on to the next generation. Design classics such as the Barcelona Chair and the PH Lamp are found here.
Inspiration is the name of the game at Oscar & Clothilde. The inventory reflects cultures from around the world, in keeping with the whimsical back story that is based on the imaginary Oscar & Clothilde travelling the world to collect beautiful items to offer their Stockholm clientele. No two items are the same, so if you’re looking for that personal touch to add to your home, this is the place for you.
Spread over three floors just a stone’s throw from Stockholm’s Stureplan, Plan Ett has an inventory that is both classic and modern, with a delightful mix of furniture, lighting, carpets, and other interior design items that are sourced from both Sweden and internationally. A favourite among the interior design crowd, Plan Ett is known for its unique approach to design, with an eye for the unusual, as well as the sophisticated.
If you make Svenskt Tenn your final stop on your Stockholm design shopping trip, you can slip upstairs and enjoy a bite to eat in the beautifully appointed Tea Salon. With eye-watering views over the waters of Nybroviken this place makes you almost forget the food, which is notoriously sublime. Have a snack, lunch, or afternoon tea here, and enjoy the menu, which reflects the seasons, while sinking back into overstuffed sofa and chairs.
