Following numerous requests from readers to share my tips on where to shop for the best designs, including Scandinavian products, I compiled a list of my favorite retailers and created The Shop Directory.

The Shop Directory is a one stop for design; it showcases the best online boutiques into one location, facilitating and enhancing the shopping experience. Selected shops have that little something that makes me want to come back for more. They have been selected for their uniqueness, quality, style and product assortment. You’ll discover where to find amazing Scandinavian products from leading brands as well as from up-and-coming designers, along with other fantastic designs for your home that are too-good-not-to-share – And have them shipped right to your door! It’s design shopping made easy.

Placement on the site is offered on an invitation-only basis. I make it a personal mission to find the most interesting online boutiques for my readers, as well as to help out promising entrepreneurs by giving them some of the visibility they deserve.

To online retailers:
The Shop Directory is a unique and affordable platform to reach thousands of prospective buyer, to gain some serious exposure, and to build your brand. At a fraction of the price of a traditional banner ad, you get your own branded microsite on Nordic Design, featuring information about your shop and products, with pictures, social media buttons and links to your store.
