Top 5 design outlets in Sweden

Many of Sweden’s most well-known interior design brands run their own factory outlets. Don’t miss these stores which sell rugs, crockery, blankets and much more at bargain prices.

Skultuna

Founded by king Charles IX in 1607, Skultuna is still a purveyor to the Royal Court of Sweden. Its timeless candle holders, napkin rings, flower pots and vases in brass fit easily into any home. Some objects, such as the classic office candlestick, have been in production since the early 17th century, while others have been created by contemporary designers like Claesson Koivisto Rune, GamFratesi and Lara Bohinc. At the factory shop, second-quality objects are always sold at a 40 percent discount.

The store also stocks products by other brands, including Sagaform, Orrefors, Kosta Boda, Stutterheim, Happy Socks, Ekelunds (textiles) and jewellery from Snö of Sweden.

All their blankets are made from natural fibres in the company’s own factory. This factory store sells throws, pillows and other textiles for the home in wool, linen and cotton. Some items are second quality, others outgoing models from previous collections.

Gustavsberg

Gustavsberg’s porcelain and stoneware products have been an important part of the Swedish design heritage since the company was founded in 1825. Most Swedes recognize the company’s classic designs – especially Stig Lindberg’s graceful, colourfully painted tableware lines such as Berså from the 1960s. All products are still made in Gustavsberg, 20 kilometres east of Stockholm, and largely by hand. Visit the factory store to shop second sorting items and products from other Swedish manufacturers like Skruf and Kockums at discounted prices.
