I'm sure you already know but Ikea is opening in the Kansai area this year! In April! I can't wait!
I have been thinking Scandinavian thoughts today. I had a penpal in Denmark when I was a teenager. I wonder what she's up to now? My brother in-law is Norwegian. That's the extent of my Scandinavian affiliations.
Here's a beautiful online shopping store for all things Nordic (for the home) - Markka based in Japan.
Have you heard of Lotta Jansdotter? The Scandinavian designer named Lotta Anderson is very popular in Japan. I actually found some of the fabric in my local store the other day. I was very excited about that. It's very reasonably priced, about 1500 yen a meter.
And of course there is Scandinavian goodness on Etsy. I love Syko. She is in Finland.
