Scandinavian Market featuring Furniture by Palette & Parlor
Friday, 13 November – Thursday, 31 December 2015

Trevlig Helg!  Glade Feriedage!  Hyvää Joulua!

Welcome to our Scandinavian Market! This is the fourth in a series of curated specialty markets and includes goods from Denmark, Sweden, and Finland. We are partnering this year with local furniture store Palette & Parlor, owned by Ivy and John Simon. John and Ivy are North Carolina natives who, some years ago, lived in Copenhagen, Denmark. It was there that their admiration for the elegant simplicity and craftsmanship of Danish Design was born. Their store in Chapel Hill is a treasure trove of modern furniture—much of it of Scandinavian design. The modern furniture icons featured here are the perfect backdrop for our varied wares of Scandinavian Design. We hope our festive Scandinavian Market will inspire others to find fun and innovative ways to collaborate with those in their community and beyond.
