Copenhagen shopping

Copenhagen's up-and-coming neighborhoods have evolved into shopping destinations in their own right. Vesterbro, in particular, is building a quirky reputation for specialized boutiques like Maur, which cherry-picks its offbeat selection of hospital beds and Italian lamps (32 Oehlenschlaegersgade, basement; 45-33-31-00-56;, and Donn Ya Doll, which stocks coy, girly retro fashions, such as floaty sundresses and white socks kissed by a little red bow (55 Istedgade; 45-33-22-66-35; Nørrebro's retail reputation is built on the bargain-priced antique and secondhand stores that line Ravnsborggade—an anchor for collectors of classic Danish furniture and ceramics. If your time is limited, head to the city center for a full range of local options, from flagship boutiques to antique galleries and purveyors of the odd and unexpected. Many of these shops mount a newly aggressive challenge to classic Danish Modern style, and most lie within easy walking distance of Strøget, central Copenhagen's long spine of a pedestrian street (itself a good place to invest in contemporary Danish design at landmark shops like Illums Bolighus). Apparently starved for whimsy, color, and pattern after growing up with their parents' austere, monochromatic taste, young Danish houseware designers are swapping straight lines, simple forms, and neutral colors for a Day-Glo palette and neo-baroque look.
