Floramor & Krukatös

Just when you thought Da Matteo’s coffee store couldn’t get any dreamier, you’ll find this cluttered plant and pottery shop tucked away in the courtyard. Browse handmade pots, plates and plants, as well as works by Swedish artists, textiles and glassware.

Rum för Papper

No one puts more emphasis on life’s little pleasures than the Swedes. And when it comes to pens and paper, they look no further than this stationary haven in the hip arcade of Victoriapassagen. It’s surprising how much time can pass by browsing the wooden shelves of linen-bound notebooks, paper arranged by colour, pots, pencils and suede pencil cases.

Artilleriet

This homeware shop is simply lovely. Following a visit, you’ll want to set aside some time to browse their larger branch in Magasinsgatan, a softly lit warehouse of velvet sofas, botanical posters, wicker chairs, lanterns and linen. Then nip round the corner to their smaller kitchenware branch, where you’ll find Swedish ceramics, glassware and textiles, arranged like the kitchen you’ll (probably) never have.

Grandpa

This “Scandinavian life store” is responsible for the effortless style seen from Stockholm to Malmo, and this branch offers a curation of women and menswear from high-end international designers. You’ll also find millennial staples, such silver jewellery, hats, backpacks and stacks of indie magazines.

Haga Trätoffelfabrik

If you still think clogs are reserved for chefs and gardeners, think again. Wooden footwear is enjoying a renaissance in Gothenburg and this cosy little shop in the Haga district has been selling top-quality Swedish clogs since 1932. The workshop is on-site and shoes in a kaleidoscope of colours cover the walls and ceiling –  ours have barely left our feet since.

Market 29

This airy shop in Haga has just about everything you need to deck out your home like a true modern Swede. Think wooden clothes ladders, stacks of pottery, linen sheets, filament bulbs and wicker bags.
