Denmark, Copenhagen Guide (B): Copenhagen Shopping: 16 Ideas for Travelers

Denmark is renowned for simple, industrial and functional design, as well as bohemian and everyday fashion-wear for the individual urban living. The capital Copenhagen, home to Copenhagen Fashion Week twice a year and biannual INDEX: Design to Improve Life - the world’s biggest design awards, is the hub for fashion and designer gifts shopping, bound to please yourself and your loved ones alike.

The design is now a bestseller. The dinnerware collectives cost from $45-675. The cup and saucer on the photo come at the price of $130.
