Under the roof of beautiful, exposed wooden beams and in between classic white walls, Libby Helinski sells some of the most beautiful Scandinavian homeware pieces around. Housed in what use to an art gallery, the idea to open the shop came after Libby lived for a year in Sweden near the Artic Circle and feel in love with the style.
Having just opened an online version of the store, Libby is also excited to now be stocking pieces of the Marimekko fashion and homewares range. Probably one of the most iconic Scandinavian brands around, Pappa Sven will be receiving pieces in September from the fashion range that was just launched at the Fashion Weeks in Tokyo and New York. It’s a brand that suits women from all age groups, from the 65+ who have loved the brand since it had a store in Newcastle back in the 70s, to the younger generation who’s Instagram feeds are filled with Scandinavian design inspiration.
