Northern Lights

Another Nordic invasion is upon Dublin, this time in the form of new Scandinavian design supplier Nordic Makers, which inaugurates its online shop today. Infinitely tasteful wares in magical shapes from makers in Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland are now available in the recently opened (and incredibly attractive) shop in Dun Laoghaire’s George’s Street, and online (with quick delivery), so no more browsing obscure Norwegian artist sites and waiting weeks for our parcel (okay, my parcel).

This is a carefully curated collection where each product is hand-picked by the owners, judging from their Instagram updatesDanish duo, Dr Louis Weyhe Funder (a design and architecture historian and Danish modern furniture expert – that explains it!) and business brain Klaus Kristian Sorensen run the latest Scandi design venture to reach Ireland. The store showcases an impressive and eclectic range of high-end furniture, sumptuous textiles, out-of-this-world lighting, ceramic wares and sweet prints and more. A nice touch are the lovely quotes from the makers themselves which accompany the product descriptions, so that you learn a new story when you buy one of these beautiful pieces. I especially love the unique leather products – not just your run-of-the-mill wallets and purses here; see pendant lamp below.

My little lust list looks like this:
