Minimalists, Rejoice—We Found Your New Favorite Online Shop

a minimalist dining area

We love IKEA for its basic home necessities and affordable, trendy pieces. In fact, we'll never say no to a quick trip to the Scandinavian retailer store, and we rarely leave empty-handed (and no, we don't just mean that we picked up a hot dog on the way out). But as we get older, sometimes we start looking for unique and more durable pieces—the items that will stand the test of time. When we reach a more permanent place in our lives, it's only natural to want our homeware to be as sturdy and timeless.

While we'll never stop picking up home accents at IKEA season after season, we like to add a little variety to our minimalist shopping for our homes. Enter Finnish Design Shop: a collective online shop that holds the best of Scandinavian design. Best of all, a lot of the brands it carries are affordable. Ahead we handpicked some of our favorite new arrivals to prove that this design destination is essentially IKEA for grown-ups. Is it time to give your home a seasonal update? Pick up a few pieces from this Scandinavian design heaven.
