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.

LIVING ON THE EDGE TIPS:

Relæ
is where chef Christian Puglisi (formally of Noma) is now serving up more New Nordic Cuisine, also from locally sourced ingredients, but here with prices that will make your hat land a little closer to you when they knock it off your head.
Jægersborggade 41.
A tip from Martin Andersson

Torvehallerne
is the newest destination for foodies in Copenhagen — it just opened on the 2nd of September. Supposedly inspired by Barcelona’s La Boqueria, Torvehallerne’s 2 large halls are, in fact, quite unique.
Frederiksborggade 21, 1360 Copenhagen K

Design by us SHOP
You'll find their full collection here - including all new products and vintage lamps... Rentemestervej 43, 2400 Copenhagen NV

Verdens Mindste Kaffebar
will probably never be accused of false advertising. Depending on who you ask, it seats anywhere from 2 – 5 people indoors. Needless to say, warm weather brings very welcome additional seating, because we hear it’s the best coffee and cake in town!
Tullinsgade 1, 1850 Copenhagen
A tip from Laura Andrea Orlando

The Coffee Collective
is - according to you - the best coffee place in town.
Jægersborggade 10 and Torvehallerne.
A tip from Martin Andersson

Risteriet
came in a close second for the best coffee in town. If your hands are already shaking, maybe stick to their amazing selection of barista tools, or order a coffee subscription for later.
Studiestræde 36
A tip from Martin Andersson

Pakhus 48
offers the opportunity to see some of that world famous Danish design in the exceptional setting of a harbor warehouse. Don’t miss their Christmas event, in which all 7 of their showrooms will be teeming with holiday adventures.
A tip from Lina Lorentzon

42RAW
will refuel your depleted energies with pure raw goodness. Intrigued by the sound of raw lasagne? Then don’t miss 42RAW!
Pilestræde 32

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
