For anyone who might be new to the wonders of Danish design, or just wants an enjoyable scroll through the best it has to offer, we’ve made a list of the brands we always come back to.

They have collaborated with many designers over the years, ensuring their aesthetic is constantly refreshed. Slit table, from €159 and Silhouette sofa, from €2,889. Enamel range from €12.
Best for… Chairs, both dining and sofas, and we also love their fun kitchen accessories.
Creating simple yet contemporary designs, Normann Copenhagen is set apart by its ability to often do something just a little different.

Block table, €230.
