VINTAGE DESIGN TABLEWARE FROM SCANDINAVIA
In this webshop you will find a selection of vintage design tableware made by Arabia, Gustavsberg, Rörstrand, Stavangerflint, Figgjo Flint and various smaller earthenware factories in Finland, Sweden and Norway about 35 to 65 years ago. Unique items that have been designed by well-known artists from the 50s to 80s, such as Kaj Franck, Stig Lindberg, Marianne Westman, Inger Waage and many other leading designers in those days from the Nordic countries – Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland and Iceland – or 'Norden' as the Danes, Swedes and Norwegians say, hence our name.
Norden design's selection changes continually. Most articles are unique specimens that are hard to find nowadays. When an article has been sold, and we haven't got a spare one by coincidence, it will be out of stock until we have been able to retrieve another specimen. On the other hand, our selection will be supplemented with other items on a regular basis. Every now and then we set out for Scandinavia in order to purchase exceptional products. Subsequently, these items will be displayed in our webshop. You will find a random selection of our latest acquisitions at the bottom of our homepage. Since our tableware is second-hand, we are not liable to add VAT to our selling prices.
If you are looking for a special present, but you aren't interested in tableware, please have a look at our NICE PRESENTS FROM SWEDEN pages. Here you will find our brand new bags and kitchen textiles (tea towels, oven gloves and cloths, aprons, etc) in typically Swedish patterns, designed by brands such as SPEGELS. Great products imported by us directly from Sweden, and only available in the Netherlands at Norden design's webshop. In the prices of these products 21% VAT is included.
On our ALMEDAHLS page you will find a selection of table cloths, napkins and tea towels from the Swedish designer label of the same name, printed with gorgeous designs of Marianne Westman, Marianne Nilsson en Studio Almedahls. The material is a mixture of linen (55%) and cotton (45%) which allows it to dry faster and absorp more fluid than textiles made of 100% cotton.
SPIRA OF SWEDEN
And how about the quirky cushion covers and tote bags by SPIRA OF SWEDEN featuring a variety of handprinted faces? Made of 100% cotton in the prettiest colour combinations.
Our products labelled STIG L. are made in the prettiest textile patterns designed by Stig Lindberg at the end of the 40's. We currently offer a limited selection of cutting boards and serving trays made of laminated birch wood.
