We recently enjoyed a few days in the wonderful city of Copenhagen.
Keen to explore the design offerings of the city, we visited concept stores, pursued junk shops and investigated museums and galleries. Our wanderings were punctuated by fine coffee shops and rather nice pickled fish. Here are some of the highlights...
The street Jægersborggade in the Nørrebro neighbourhood is home to many independent boutiques, cafes and restaurants.
Kaktus, as the name suggests, is an amazing emporium of prickly plants.
Along the road, Palermo Hollywood is a colourful concept store selling a mix of books, magazines, objects, jewellery - find One We Made Earlier in store!
Design Museum Copenhagen gives a great overview of Danish design past and present. The current exhibition is worth a visit. Learning From Japan charts the influence of Japanese design on Danish design. (on until Sept 2017)
The antique and junk shops of Ravnsborgade are also worth a visit.
No visit to Copenhagen is complete without a trip to Hay House. A joy to see all the amazing products under one roof and enter through some vibrant wall drawings by Nathalie Du Pasquier.
Notable places to eat
GRØD a porridge only cafe.
Finally, it was hard to resist a photo of this geometric playground!
