Steal This Look: A Creative Work/Dining Space in Copenhagen

February 8, 2022

For gallery-store The Apartment in Copenhagen, owner Tina Seidenfaden Busck converted an 18th century apartment in Christianshavn into a rotating showroom. When she opened up The Residence, a vacation rental apartment in the same building, Tina built out rooms as “a dialogue of 20th century furniture, contemporary art, and design.” The dining room at The Residence doubles as a work space “where you can have dinner parties or make yourself a home office, read the newspaper, and relax on the daybed.”

Here, vintage and antiques play a large role in the overall design, but so too does paint, furniture and lighting all accessible through online sources. Here are the key elements.
