Shopper’s Diary: Scandinavian Grace in the Catskills

Julie Carlson July 19, 2011

Fredrik Larsson, a veteran of the Brooklyn retail scene, decamped to the Catskills a couple of years ago and opened an outpost of his popular Williamsburg store in the sylvan town of Shokan. Located in a 4,500-square-foot former garage, the shop carries a wide range of goods from Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Sweden, and Norway (including favorites like Iittala, Asplund, and Stelton, as well as newer brands like Zweed and Muuto). Go to Scandinavian Grace for more information.
