Interior at Anne Black, Copenhagen, Denmark

Anne Black

Anne Black’s ceramics have a soft, Scandinavian-style sensibility. Something as simple as a toile motif on a miniature milk beaker or a series of dots on a beautifully shaped plate make her pieces stand out. From hooks and mugs to rings and brooches, Black designs something for everyone.

Atelier September

The highly Instagrammable Atelier September is perfect for a shopping break while exploring Copenhagen’s trove of city-center boutiques. Though the menu changes regularly, you can count on finding the trademark avocado on rye toast alongside great coffee and simple, seasonal fare; we tasted ultra-fresh white asparagus when we visited in early spring. The kitchen is open and minuscule, the crowd is laid-back and full of locals and it’s the kind of place that might end up drawing you in for the better part of the afternoon even if you just stopped by for a cappuccino.

Interior view -  Aura, Copenhagen, Denmark


This luxe, glossy boutique showcases a curated selection of some of the more innovative designer brands in fashion like Balmain, Karl Lagerfeld and Jason Wu. The young, stylish owner was inspired to open Aura when she found that international designer fashion and accessories were not readily available in Copenhagen. The concept store was one of the city’s first harbingers of avant-garde couture.

This charming shop specializes in handmade ceramics and children’s knits that exhibit a delight in modern shapes and bright colors.

Illums Bolighus A/S

Since 1925, this design store has been a byword of good taste and style. Visionary founder Kaj Dessau and creative director Brita Drewsen oversaw interior design displays that worked in harmony with pieces of art and put Danish interior design on the map. The sprawling space across three massive floors houses items by big names of Danish design, like Arne Jacobsen and Georg Jensen, but it’s the work of smaller, lesser-known local creators that you’ll want to single out. A recent spree included such finds as colorful coat hangers from design house Morfo, ceramic vase-candle-holder-combinatins from Louise Campbell and sleek wooden kitchen accessories from Skagerak. There are now four Illums Bolighus outposts in Copenhagen.

Merchandise at Karamelleriet, Copenhagen, Denmark


Charlotte Vigel loves caramels so much she opened an artisanal caramel studio and shop in the trendy shopping street Jaegersborggade. Visitors can watch the buttery confections being made in old-fashioned machines and taste different samples, but it will be impossible to leave without some of the delicious freshly made treats. If you see a pretty blond behind the machine or the counter, don’t be surprised if someone asks her for an autograph, Vigel a.k.a. Tiggy, had a previous career as a pop singer.

Keramiker Inge Vincents

Inge Vincents, a ceramic artist, works in a studio attached to her petite showroom, and her diminutive boutique is a perfect example of the exciting, creative shops found along Jægersborggade, the main artery of the up-and-coming Nørrebro district. Paper-thin and translucent, her pieces—short vessels for tea lights, slouchy vases, cups and more—are made exclusively of white porcelain and no two are identical. Vincents calls her work “thinware,” and in addition to her pottery skills, she is luckily adept at securely wrapping up her patrons’ purchases so that they can be safely carried home in a suitcase.
