The best place to start is the Östermalm neighborhood, which is noted not only for pricey real estate and chic nightlife but also for furniture shops, especially along Sibyllegatan.

Topping any must-see list are Modernity and Jacksons, galleries that offer exceptional vintage pieces by blue-chip Nordic names like Finn Juhl, Kaare Klint, and Hans Wegner—at prices to match.

Modern rug enthusiasts will want to book an appointment to browse the exuberantly patterned carpets at the Märta Måås-Fjetterström show-room. And Asplund presents two floors of elegantly minimalist contemporary furnishings in a pristine setting that feels like the Scandinavian home of your dreams.

For more unusual vintage finds, Sjöström Antik sells iconic pieces like Poul Henningsen Artichoke lights, Bruno Mathsson Eva chairs, and kitschy heirloom objects, while the gloriously crowded design den Gamla Lampor specializes in old lamps but also has idiosyncratic collectibles such as Coca-Cola coolers and old Omega watches.

A pair of standout shops are tucked away inside converted parking garages: Nordlings focuses on Nordic pieces, including silver jewelry from the ’50s and ’60s, while the more international Dusty Deco offers a mix that might range from a stunning 1950s Italian bar cart to classic Eames chairs.

Next to the harbor, don’t miss Svenskt Tenn, featuring timeless, beautifully crafted furnishings and vibrant textiles—including many classics by Josef Frank—and Malmstenbutiken, which highlights the influential and continually stylish work of Carl Malmsten. Both shops are owned by the same foundation, preserving two pillars of impeccable Scandinavian taste.
