Our Favorite Swedish Etsy Finds: Home LifeJanuary 31, 2018
If you haven’t noticed, we have been loving Etsy lately.
It’s the perfect place to go for those uniquely personal, vintage, one-of-a-kind pieces. Our last two posts focused on Swedish holiday items and other gifts, but we’re dialing it back after the holiday season and finding items that would be perfect in the house year-round.
Here are a few of our favorite Swedish finds for the home, inside and out.
Clocking in at the most expensive item on the list (pun intended), this Mora clock restoration piece is beautiful. Mora clocks get their name from the town of Mora in Dalarna province of Sweden. While you can find cheaper alternatives from Target and Houzz, we love the colors of this version.
While you are equipping the indoors with some Swedish touches here and there, don’t forget the outdoors! Here at Umgås, we are big Kubb fans. For those that don’t know, Kubb is a popular Swedish yard game, likened to a combination of horseshoes and bowling. We stumbled across JnJHandmade, which has a beautiful Kubb set for only $50, which is a steal after looking at some of the other homemade sets available for sale on Etsy.
This is an interesting offering because you are paying for a digital download of an art print. If you’re like us, you’ve got old frames lying around the house just waiting for a cute print. For just over $5, you get three print sizes. Print it at home or at a local print shop, and throw it in a frame and beautify your space. IshtarPrints has several Scandinavian prints, so we’d get a group of them and build out a colorful gallery wall.
If this doesn’t belong on your doorstep, we don’t know what does.
Most of us keep a tea towel hanging on our oven or our refrigerator for easy access, so why not replace a boring, plain towel with one screen-printed with Dala horses?
