Oh, those Scandinavians and their wicked-cool furniture. Don't come to Copenhagen if you have a thing for avocado-green recliners festooned with antimacassars. No, no, no. Copenhagen is the place for sleek and contemporary furnishings with a Danish-Italian twist. It's hip; it's cool; it's "with it." Think clean lines and a decidedly modern aesthetic. It's a store filled to the brim with furnishings that tell the world you know how to decorate. Have at it.
