KOMA: Yet another of my favorite stores in Oslo. The store was opened by former violinist Marte Krogh and is selling well established brands such as See by Chloe, Whyred and Replay as well as more up an coming brands and hand picked vintage items. Marte Krogh travels around the world to find the best vintage pieces. She has also does her own design. There are three KOMA stores, the one in Hegdehaugsveien 34 is certainly worth a visit interiorwise. Rough concrete walls and a nice display gives the store a really cool look.

Futura (previously known as Cirka Design) is a store in Oslo (Teresesgate 3) which specializes in design classics both second hand and new production. They have many of my beloved Eames chairs and that orange Panton pendant lamp Flowerpot is on my wish list for sure.

The original glass fiber Eames chairs are reproduced by craftsmen in Los Angeles. They are produced with the old moulds from the factory of Herman Miller. The chairs can be ordered at Futura. Here is a video of how the chairs are made:

Quoted from permafrost.no: “The second Sole Service store was made exclusively for girls, featuring streetwear and sneakers only in women’s sizes. The main idea for the design was to create a diverse and exiting environment, inspiring customers to spend more time discovering the treasures to be found on the shelves.”

A new vintage design store in Oslo specializing in 80´s/90´s clothing and accessories. Located in Posthallen. Seems to be worth a visit judging from the playful deco and references from the past, and the location Posthallen which probably adds to interesting contrasts.

MARK + BRANDY is one of my favorite stores in Oslo both fashion and interior wise. It is located in the shopping mall Sandvika Storsenter. The store sells international brands and hand pick items to match their profile. The interior is airy and has nice clean lines. The entrance level has a rougher feel to it with concrete floors and hvite moulded shapes flowing through the space giving the clothes a nice surface to be presented on. The lower level called the boutique has a more exclusive luxurious but simplistic touch. Brands are Acne, See by Chloe, J. Lindeberg and Filippa K, just to mention a few.
The staff is very friendly, professional and helpful. Special items from the collections of the brands held by the store but which are not to be found in the store can be ordered specifically. Three years ago I bought some (very expensive)Buttero boots there. My credit card was smoking, but I just love them, and still do! I make a real effort to keep them in good shape, real quality just lasts longer.
