His Manners men store | De Pijp (CLOSED)

Men love to shop as much as women....if you give them the right stores! On the Amsterdam Next blog and in the APP I covered several shops focusing on and where men love to shop. Hutspot is no longer unknown, 'Property off' a little gem in the Herenstraat and the Haarlemmerstraat en-dijk has several stores that focus on men.

His Manners is the latest concept store for men in the Pijp. The store has a tough look with metal stairs and blue steel walls. Leather products play a central role and even one of the walls is covered in leather. His Manners is the place to shop for leather bags, gadgets and gifts, products that all fit the 'must haves' category where quality and a stylish look are really important. Next to bags, watches and other small wanna-haves there are a few objects for your home including an outdoors fire place.

Danish brandstore BOLIA | Utrechtsestraat area

With a grand opening and a 20% discount on everything! till december 27th, Bolia opened it's first store in Amsterdam and the Netherlands. You have to believe me if I say the team build up the store in only two weeks and the result is pretty amazing!

Two floors of affordable Scandinavian design and a brand that with their slogan 'Sea, smell, hear, touch & taste' has the mission to give you a new and inspirational experience.

In the store you can try out the furniture in different cozy settings, I especially loved the basement where a more darker atmosphere was created with soft velvet, dark walls and an industrial room divider. With the many styled corners this store offers everything to find some new inspiration for your interior and see a fresh and different Scandinavian we haven't seen in town before.

RAW Materials goodie bag give away | Rozengracht (CLOSED)

This week I popped into Raw Materials, the store is often visited by stylists, and it is the place where you will find those old indian market tables you were drooling over at the interiors magazines, beautiful industrial cabinets and lamps, original items from India like signs, metal suitcases, black pottery, Italian ceramic, Icelandic sheepskins, couches to die for and all beautiful softened with my favourite lamps from Ay Illuminate.
