Nordiska Kompaniet
Hamngatan 18-20, Norrmalm
The quintessential Swedish department store first opened its doors in 1915, in a dramatic Art Nouveau building that was built specifically for this purpose. The store houses five full floors of merchandise ranging from fashion to tabletop, to books and music, with a buy that manages to celebrate Swedish brands while maintaining an international perspective. Don't miss the top floor, where you'll find their selection of children's clothes and toys, a bar, and a full restaurant.
Svenskt Tenn
Strandvägen,5, Östermalm
Svenskt Tenn is possibly the most famous design store in Sweden and it is easy to understand why. Designer Estrid Ericson initially needed a space to sell her pewter wares, but over time her interest turned to interiors. Ericson teamed up with Jewish-Austrian architect and furniture designer Josef Frank (who had fled to Sweden to avoid the Nazis), and their interior collaborations became renowned after the world expos of the late 1930s. Today the store’s inventory is in the thousands—bolts of beautifully patterned fabrics, Scandinavian furniture, cushions, throws, curtains, and pretty much everything else you could imagine for your home. There is much here that is both portable and giftable, and they also sell other brands like Fornasetti.
