Home and interiors stores in Copenhagen, Part 2.

Ilum Bolighus This chic retailer stocks classic and new Danish-designed furniture, ceramics, glassware, kitchen items, and children's toys. Anything interior related can be found here, including simple gifts.

Le Klint This Danish lighting line is known for its hand-pleated lamps, made by skilled craftsmen from white PVC. The largest collection is available at their showroom on Store Kirkestræde.

Normann Copenhagen Founded by Jan Andersen and Poul Madsen in 1999, Normann Copenhagen has evolved into a well-known brand offering high-quality innovative products developed in cooperation with world-famous artists. Their flagship store is located in Østerbro, on the eastern side of the city, and stocks their entire collection and more.

Paustian Located on the outskirts of the city, this elegant furniture mecca was designed by architect Jörn Utzon, the mastermind behind the famed Opera House of Sydney. The airy showroom features with memorable water views and is full of contemporary design furniture, objects, and rugs by all the great international names.

Ravnsborggade This walkable neighborhood offers a total of 39 shops, including antique dealers, retro/vintage stores, cafes, restaurants; a good destination to wander on foot.

Royal Copenhagen The four-story flagship store celebrates 235 years of brilliant craftsmanship (we especially like their latest Mega creative pattern).

Sögreni This boutique bike shop celebrates the timeless art of hand-crafted bicycles; if you're not in the market for a bespoke bike, the handmade bell makes for a perfect souvenir.

Stilleben This eclectic small design shop, located on a parallel street to Strøget, sells a fine assortment of ceramics, glassware, jewelry, textiles, and wickerwork by both Danish and international designers. Among the offerings is the Twist a Twill Plaid, by Tina Ratzer, recently featured in Elle Decoration UK. Other visit-worthy Galleries can be seen here.
