Copenhagen Design

I’m writing this from a press trip I’m on with Ikea Canada. One of our stops is amazing Copenhagen, Demark. It’s one of the top cities in the world for anything design. I’ve had a few hours on my own so far, and have made it to a few great shops. If you are ever in Copenhagen, be sure to check them out!

1. Georg Jensen

I love how they’ve used newspapers as placemats! Although anything looks amazing with Georg Jensen on it! You can purchase Georg Jensen at Hollace Cluny in Toronto.

2. Illums Bolighus

Four floors of everything for the home from the top designers of the world! I could have spent a few more hours in here.

3. Royal Copenhagen

I love the white wishbone chairs paired with a rustic dining table.

4. Grønlykke

A small shop with beautiful accessories. I especially loved these paper-covered boxes.

Many of these stores have online shopping, as well, so they’re worth a browse.

For Scandinavian design, read about Morgan Michener’s trip to Sweden and Denmark.
