COPENHAGEN - Flawless in design, yet always remaining unpretentious, here that effortless Danish chic blends with a certain rawness that nonetheless remains cosy – or should we say hygge – at its core.

As with an inherent sense for Feng Shui, Copenhagen strikes an inimitable balance between its philosophical heart as the birthplace of Existentialism

and a rough-and-ready that a city can only exude after sitting down to the table with a good few drunken sailors.

An environmentalist with a taste for fine living and rebellion, think of Copenhagen as that guy or girl you used to see around who studied philosophy, drank black coffee, and collected tattoos, only more approachable.

Søren Aabye Kierkegaard posed the question of Either/Or; here you can have it all.

They don’t call it THE HAPPIEST CITY ON EARTH for nothing.

FRINGE LIVING

'Fringe Living' is our take on living in the familiar metropolis with fresh pair of edited eyes – we want to explore the places firmly off any general tourist radar, where, even in the biggest of cities - you can still find flavours of local living – a lovely dose of individualismus.

OUR COLLABORATOR

When it comes to interiors, some people always seem to have more chairs in their home than they know what to do with. For others, it’s lamps.

Whichever type you are, you’ll think you’ve died and gone to design-heaven at DESIGN BY US
