Together with the Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair is the Stockholm Design Week. It offers information on all kinds of design events held around the city in connection with the fair. They also provide suggestions to the “state of the art” shopping, restaurants and bars in the city! Here is a suggestion to a Beijing restaurant who offers a slice of modern China through lovely, healthy dumplings and tea!
Now it’s time to go and I will continuously update news there! Hope to see you at this year’s Stockholm Furniture Fair!
