The best interior design stores in Copenhagen

Nana Hagel

Interior design stores in Copenhagen are plentiful, and the Danish scene contains both the classic, major brands that have been influencing the design tradition for decades, as well as younger brands rethinking and evolving the Scandinavian aesthetic. Mr Hudson has selected five shops to satisfy your desire for interior inspiration, and quite possibly make you wish you brought a bigger suitcase.

DANSK made for rooms

On Istedgade, Vesterbro, you will find DANSK Made For Rooms: a bright and airy store with floor-to-ceiling windows and white-painted floors. One of the best interior design stores in Copenhagen is owned by two sisters, all designer goods are handpicked, and the ethos behind the selection is to advocate a simpler approach to design. From their travels to Japan and the rest of the world, Ma-lou and Malene stock their favourite pieces to create a collection with only the very best in interior design that fits the clean Scandinavian aesthetic perfectly.

HAY

With stores all over Europe, HAY is a rapidly growing Danish design company. HAY (pronounced ‘hey’) offers a colourful and playful universe characterised by geometrical shapes. At the HAY House flagship store located on one of the most beautiful squares in central Copenhagen, the collection holds everything from colourful notebooks and kitchen accessories to the classic ‘Copenhagen’ tables and chairs.

The Apartment

One of the quirkiest interior design stores in Copenhagen, The Apartment might not the right place to do all of your shopping given the prices here are quite high. But that doesn’t mean this gallery apartment located alongside the charming canals of Christianshavn isn’t worth a visit for a dose of inspiration. Decorated as a proper apartment with living rooms, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom, this space showcases contemporary art and design with an elegant and colourful approach. Please note current opening hours on their website before visiting.

Gubi

The Gubi store in central Copenhagen is a vibrant design universe. Though rooted in the Danish tradition, Gubi pieces have a global touch; and with respect for design, they re-launch classics from the 30’s through to the 70’s originally created by designers worldwide. The vibe is eclectic, intercontinental, thought provoking and extremely attractive.

Normann

Normann Copenhagen is a Danish design company creating contemporary pieces with a Scandinavian aesthetic, owning one of the most famous interior design stores in Copenhagen. With a collection ranging from dining tables and sofas to the classic ‘Krenit’ bowls in steel, the huge flagship store on Østerbrogade is a haven for anyone interested in design. Built on the idea of viewing design from a new perspective, Normann Copenhagen uses traditional materials in a novel way; such as creating a washing-up bowl in rubber (and making it look good!).
