Tina Seifenfaden Busck had a decade in Sotheby's under her belt when the apartment below her home, in an 18th-century residential building in Christianshavn, came up for sale. The space hadn't been touched in over forty years, so Busck restored the three-room Georgian apartment completely, right down to the oak floors dating from the 1780's. The space is a home once again, but this time, a Danish design-piece filled, completely shoppable one. The set-ups change regularly, thanks to Busck's frequent sourcing trips for Swedish, French, and Italian pieces from the 40s, 50s, and 60s.

Upon meeting at Art College in Denmark, designers Ditte Reckweg and Jelena Schou Nordentoft bonded over their shared love of ceramics, glass, and craftsmanship. The duo named their joint venture Stilleben, after the German art genre that describes the depiction of inanimate objects. The space itself is made up of pastel-hued walls and minimalist shelving—the perfect backdrop to display Reckweg and Nordentoft's hand-selected treasures—everything from Japanese tea pots to Danish textiles. The shelves are also stocked with their own branded prints, ceramics, and tableware.

Store Regnegade 1, Indre By
Rasmus Storm has been an influential force in the Scandinavian street style scene for decades, and his storefront in Copenhagen remains a necessary stop for culturephiles. He stocks a selection of everyday staples like cool sneakers, sweatshirts, beanies, and graphic tees, but there are also tons of cool books and lots of interesting jewelry. It's a great place to pick up gifts to take back home.
Store Regnegade 12, Indre By
Ganni's reach is pretty far beyond Copenhagen at this point, but there's nothing quite like visiting the designer's storefront in their hometown. Run by husband-and-wife pair Ditte and Nicolaj Reffstrup, the brand still has a family company feel, with Ditte handling the creative side and Nicolaj running the business. They're great in every category, but we love them best for flirty, easy dresses and the coolest winter-ready boots, which, incidentally, look pretty great together.
