The Skandium House a new home for Scandinavian design in South Kensington

Skandium house South Kensington

Just as I’m about to leave the UK what happens? Skandium open up a new incredible store, the Skandium house in the heart of South Kensington! With Skandium’s iconic Brompton road store closing after 10 successful years it makes way for this new concept. The Skandium house will be split between two venues, this one (featured) and another across the road to be launched during London Design Festival ’17. The new house will be designed to reflect real homes with room sets and the unique character of Scandinavian living.

It will be a totally new store concept for us, consisting of two separate buildings facing each other across the street. One, a townhouse, providing the best possible way to show how our clients could live and furnish their homes, and opposite, a standalone, quintessentially English building dating from the 1860s, which will showcase one of London’s largest collections of Scandinavian lighting, plus a floor full of accessories and gift ideas expertly curated by Skandium for the design conscious and the curious. In the new store, expect to find an engaging mix of mid-century masterpieces, future classics, and there will always be room for a Moomin mug.” – Jan Vejsholt, Skandium’s Managing Director

I was kindly giving exclusive access to the two storey town house just before the opening and in time before I move. Have a little look inside at what I discovered ………

As you can see the Skandium house is a go to destination for Scandinavian design in London. I’m really looking forward to seeing what the second building is like. Sadly I won’t be in London for that big reveal as I will be setting up life in Copenhagen. However it’s likely that I’ll be sharing any info I find. If you’re in London you must visit this place!

    Skandium is one of my favourite stores. I’ve been shopping with them for years. I usually visit the one on Marylebone high street. I can’t wait to see the new venue in person.

    Wow, this looks like a store I would come to London for. I pretty much want everything you’ve pictured. I absolutely love that Cesta lamp.

    Woah what a gorgeous store! Typical that it rolls up just as you’re leaving but hopefully you’ll have plenty to pick from on your new adventure 🙂 x
