New colours for Sukha Amsterdam | Haarlemmerbuurt area

It is more than five years I first posted about one of Amsterdam's most iconic stores, Sukha Amsterdam at Haarlemmerstraat. The store has been bright white for some years now and recently got a makeover. At the back a nice wall partition made out of old window frames separates the atelier from the store. 

A round table, one of the latest designs by Atelier Sukha stand prominently in the room, new also is the couch shown in one of the pictures. The most important change though is the walls and floor changed from white into grey, it gives a totally new feeling to the store that you feel immediately when entering the store, go check it out!

Salamon Art & Design | A new Conceptstore with a focus on Polish design

Salamon Art & Design is a concept store / art gallery space presenting today’s lively Polish art and design. The Amsterdam-based concept store features a range of Polish fashion, jewellery, homeware and furniture in their clean and white space at Rozengracht. When in Milan for designweek I spotted several of the designers that now can be found at Salomon.

The shop opened a few days ago showcasing the first collections and new designers are added every week until the official opening event on September 23. You are welcome to pop in! I was impressed by the charcoal jewellery and the different furniture and love the idea of a Polish concept store. Salomon Art & Design will also host workshops and exhibitions of Polish artists and designers.
