Design Shopping

If design is defined as making the practical beautiful, then Scandinavia rules the roost. Elegant, innovative yet functional takes on everyday items have made the region's creativity world famous and mean that you won't have to look far before you experience an 'I need that!' moment. There's great design and handicrafts to be found right across the region, but Copenhagen and Helsinki, closely followed by Stockholm, are where modern flagship stores can be found alongside quirky boutiques that present the best of the edgier new ideas.
