Sørensen Østlyngen, Oslo

60 Bygdøy Allé
Norway 0265
Tel: 47 22 56 31 02's insider take:

You'll find this small but well-edited furniture shop on what's arguably Oslo's poshest residential street, Bygdøy Allé. The owners work with small suppliers in Norway and greater Scandinavia, many of whom build the clean-lined tables, chairs, and sofas by hand. So if you're looking for a unique piece of Scandinavian furniture you likely won't find back home, this might be the place. Among the more interesting items to look for include coat tracks that look like trees made by Swedish designer Swedese and simple side tables made from Norwegian birch. The mix-and-match wall édecor hangings called Panel Pieces, in beautiful graphic prints, can be rolled up like a poster inside a tube to bring home and unfurl on your own wall for an abstract Scandinavian feel far from the cold north.—Terry Ward
