The Shop Directory is a curated guide to online shopping, and features my favourite online retailers.
I make it a personal mission to find the best boutiques of the web and to share to share them with you, while helping out entrepreneurs by giving them some of the visibility they deserve (read more about my motivation to launch the Shop Directory here). The shops featured in the directory all have been selected for their uniqueness, quality, style and product assortment. You’ll discover fantastic designs for your home that can be shipped right to your door. It’s design shopping made easy!
Here are five totally awesome shops I recommend you visit today.
Why I like it: A newly-opened shop with carefully-curated furniture, lighting and home accessories from Scandinavia. You’ll find selected goods from brands not easily found in North America, such as Ditte Fischer, Hagedornhagen, Nomess Copenhagen, Skagerak, and more. There is something for everyone’s taste! The Fjord Store is also a proud member of “Be Original Americas”, a non-profit organisation that helps protect the history of design and the future of innovation.

Why I like it: A beautifully-designed online store filled with unique homewares, art, furniture and designs that are “not only functional, but also have inherent beauty, craftsmanship and timelessness”. The team has a “less is more” philosophy, and curates products that have Scandinavian, monochrome, minimalist and pure aesthetics – You’ll just want to have everything in their assortment!

Why I like it: They offer a unique star map of the alignment of the stars above you at a special moment – Awesome, right? It is the perfect gift for a loved one or yourself, as a reminder or souvenir of an event that is important: A birth, an engagement, a wedding, an encounter, an achievement… It’s up to you! I just ordered one to decorate my baby boy’s room; a beautiful, personalized and meaningful decorative element that is also a special memento. I’m loving it!

Why I like it: I am a big fan of Silke Bonde’s evocative style and the softness of her watercolours. Minimalist, simple and timeless, her beautiful prints are inspired by nature – Leaves, the sea, a forrest… Her prints are perfect to add a subtle touch of color and graphic element to any interior.

Shipping from: Denmark
Why I like it: A Toronto-based shop selling the best of Scandinavian Design, from both well established brands such as Menu, Ferm Living and Normann Copenhagen as well as independent designers such as Silke Bonde, (By) Garmi, Hanna Konola and Magdalena Tyboni – Their assortment is constantly expanding. And with free shipping across Canada, let’s go shopping!
