30 Designers and Brands We Loved at Stockholm Design Week 2019

People often ask about our favorite furniture fairs (besides Milan and New York, of course), and we’ve always reflexively said Stockholm, due to the elevated baseline of good taste and sheer quality of work that tends to emerge from the Scandinavian capital. But in truth, neither Monica nor I had been to Stockholm Design Week in more than a decade. And as easy as it is journalistically to report a fair from afar these days, it’s impossible to replicate the emotional high that comes from discovering something amazing where you least expected it.

Having just returned from a leisurely weeklong stay in Stockholm — where we launched our own exciting collection, in case you missed it — I’m happy to report that our instincts were correct: Stockholm remains one of the most vital and exciting stops on the design calendar. Like Milan and New York, the fair itself was good, but not ground-breaking (and showed a turn towards ever-earthier shades of brown), and the most exciting shows and work could be found around town (an Arranging Things pop-up at HOPE, a Frama launch at a private architect’s apartment, the Magniberg show at Bukowskis). In fact, one of our favorite collections was nowhere to be found at all — the Swedish duo Fish & Pink launched their collection exclusively online to coincide with the fair (and, we assume, to save quite a bit of money). Add to that the time we took out to go on visually inspiring field trips, and it made for a week we won’t soon forget. Read on for a look at some of our favorite finds.
