Where to shop in Stockholm, Sweden
Swedish design is impeccable and recognized for being innovative, well thought out, and environmentally conscious. Walking around Stockholm you will see wonderful window displays, carefully laid out products, and well planned stores (see the photo above for one example!). I recommend stopping into a variety of stores and just having a look at how everything is set up, even if you don’t buy anything.
These are just a few from an endless list of amazing stores in Stockholm, Sweden! I plan to go back and do more research on this front (one day)!
1- Designtorget – A fun store with contemporary yet functional items from notebooks, cups, placemats, and more all designed by well-known and up-coming designers. Click here for the Designtorget store website. There are six Designtorget stores within Stockholm, one located right in the Old Town.
2- DesignHouse – A store full of contemporary classics with a twist. DesignHouse Stockholm has clothing, porcelain, and more. There is a Design House store located on Norrmalmstorg square. Click here to see the DesignHouse Stockholm website
3 – Svenskt Tenn – This store is full of houseware, fabrics, and furniture and elegantly displayed. The store was founded in 1924 with a focus on pewter but widened its product range in the 1930’s. The store has a partnership with Josef Frank, a Viennese architect and designer.
**One of the most recognized products is the elephant pattern fabric which is not only adorable but a vintage design from the 1930’s, and which you can buy by the meter or in the store as it has been used to make a variety of products from aprons to bags and even trays. To see the famous “elefant” pattern at the Swedish store click here.
4- H&M – Of course stopping into an H&M store is a must.
