Copenhagen for interior design lovers
Louis Poulsen, Normann Copenhagen, Ferm Living, HAY…. Denmark is widely known for its sleek design, and Copenhagen is a dream destination for interior design enthusiasts.

Located on the famous shopping street Strøgeti, Illums Bolighus is a flagship for Danish and Scandinavian design.

The street-level features smaller furnishings that you can fit in your suitcase, while the upper levels showcase furniture and light fittings. If you enjoy cooking, definitely check out the basement that features the latest in homeware, from kitchen electricals to knives and cookbooks.
A block away from Illums Bolighus, the Paustian Concept Store oozes old-world charm. Besides furniture and lighting by Danish and other Nordic designers, the store features homeware, decoration, and textiles. For stylish dog-owners, there’s a dedicated section that features hand-made leashes, collars, toys, and doggy beds. Paustian also has another store in the Nordhavn area.
