As an Interior Designer, it goes without saying that I love decoration and furniture. And I appreciate good design. That is why, every time I visit a city, I feel the need to stop by some design stores and experience those products that I might use personally or professionally.
Bergen has plenty of decoration and furniture stores.
If you love Scandinavian Furniture and Decoration you must stop by Illums Bolighus. This store sells products from many of the biggest Scandinavian brands such as &tradition, Normann Copenhagen, Muuto, By Lassen, Hay, Ferm Living and many more.

Another must-go store is called Ting. It’s very easy to find because it’s located right next to the famous iconic Bryggen. Like the name indicates, in this store you find “things”, such as bathroom and kitchen accessories, a bit of furniture, decoration and potential gifts!

Bolia is a Scandinavian Furniture Design company that makes collections “filled with personality and love”, where every product is customized and hand-made. First time I went to a Bolia store it was in Oslo, and I spent a pretty long time in there. The spaces they had created in the store made me feel very comfortable, motivated and inspired. And it was the first time I was asked if I wanted a coffee (free!) while at a furniture store. I also ended up buying a cute poster that I have on the wall in my bedroom.
If you didn’t know about this brand, I urge you to visit their website right now!

These are the places to go if you love design and have a little more interest in spending money on it.
On the other hand, If you are on a budget and want to find some home accessories and furniture, you should visit Søstrene Grene. This danish store is full of little surprises. I always go because it has a very special atmosphere. The space is designed for the visitor to follow a path in which all the products are displayed in wood boxes. In this store you can also find sweets and candy, drinks and different spices.
