You Absolutely Need to Know These Brands From Stockholm Design Week 2018

Goodbyes are always difficult, especially when it comes to the last day of Stockholm Design Week. One of our favorite design events of the year, this annual fete is a celebration of all things Scandinavian design (Insert heart eyes emoji here). This highly anticipated industry event draws design-lovers, decor brands, interior designers, architects, and many more to Stockholm every February to see the latest and greatest in Scandinavian design. Read on to see some of the hottest brands from this year's show.

Dutch for "beautiful" Moooi was founded by Casper Vissers and innovative designer Marcel Wanders. A source of creative inspiration, this brand never fails to delight and surprise with their daring products year after year.

What happens when you bring a group of designers with different backgrounds together, who all have a strong love for Danish design? Magic. Danish Design Makers believe in the honesty, simplicity, and function that Scandinavian style is known for, and they're striving to continue the oh-so-dreamy tradition.

With a focus on craftsmanship and a "built to last" design philosophy, it's no surprise that Fogia's handmade line of furniture, lighting, and accessories is simply stunning.

Can you believe this brand got its humble start with a shelving competition? Founders Nils and Kajsa Strinning bravely entered their clever, minimalist shelving system and won. Their innovative and timeless design is as popular today as it was back in 1949.
