When I heard that Fredrik Larsson, owner of the Williamsburg boutique Scandinavian Grace, was opening an outpost in upstate New York, I had half a mind to take a day trip just to check it out. I still plan to but readers won't need to wait for my trip to view the interior (see more images after the jump).
Located on Route 28 in the heart of the Catskills, the new shop covers 4500 sq ft and features all of the classic manufacturers found in the Williamsburg space (Iittala, Orrefors, Marimekko, Tonfisk, Asplund, and Stelton) plus new additions from All In Wood, G.A.D. and Carl Hansen & Son as well as Vintage Mid Century imported by Copenhagen Vintage. Larsson also added a cafe to the Catskills space. It will offer coffees, teas, pastries, candy, and dried goods from around Scandinavia. A design shop and cafe in the midst of some of New York's greatest scenery? Sounds downright idyllic.
