If you are looking for a timeless escape, add Copenhagen to your Travel list. Here are the top 5 places for stand-out pieces in Denmark’s capital. 

Copenhagen is a city that understands the value of design. Known for practising sustainable consumerism, the stores in the town are thoroughly curated. Store owners dedicate their time to selecting each item purposefully, promoting the idea that pieces should last a lifetime rather than a month. These are the most uniquely curated stores in Copenhagen.

Holly Golightly

Located in the heart of Copenhagen, this highly curated multi-brand concept store created “a universe of fashion, jewellery, design and art objects”. Possessing unique pieces from both emerging talents and established designers, the store celebrates handmade, sustainable, high-quality design. Made up of owner Barbra Maj Husted’s personal art collection, Holly Golightly is an eccentric must-see gem.
