Estonian design is flourishing and Tallinn, the capital, is full of lovely design shops.
Pin for later:
This gorgeous design store is in Telleskivi Creative City. It has a beautiful layout featuring fashion, jewellery, accessories, home decor (check out the lamps and the cushions) and so much more, even bikes!
The items are made mostly by Estonian designers and some by designers from other Baltic countries.
Another shop in Telleskivi Creative City, next to Les Petites. As the name suggests, this one focuses on things for the home – furniture, lighting, kitchenware, plants and other interior design items.
The style is simple, elegant and minimalist. There’s a cute little coffee shop inside the store.
Ehe Mood – Fair trade store
A cool fair trade store, offering mainly clothing, especially some unique dresses. They also have accessories – bags, hats scarves and jewellery.
In one corner of the store you’ll find fair trade food items like chocolate and coffee. This shop is also located in the lovely Telleskivi Creative City.
Fe gallery – Estonian crafts
This shop really does feel more like a gallery than a shop. It’s a big space with an elegant display of items, mostly in muted colours. It sells Estonian design and crafts, such as glassware, ceramics, jewellery and other small gifts.
It’s in the old town, which is full of places to buy souvenirs, but this one certainly stands out among the various gift shops.
Zizi – Linen shop
A textile shop I found while walking around the old town. Its specialty is linen – everything in the shop is made of linen. It’s a medium sized shop, but it was completely full of people, both locals and tourists, when I entered, as you might expect with such a unique concept.
They sell Estonian-made linen tablecloths, cushion covers, bedding, towels, bags and more. Some items come in solid colours and others have lovely prints on them.
Estonian Design House
This beautiful store was an initiative of Estonian Association of Designers and is a place for all types of designers, new and more established, to display and sell their work.
It features more than 100 Estonian designers. You’ll find a whole range of items here, from fashion and accessories to interior design.
It has grown popular in the past few years, so much so that they opened a second shop in the Solaris shopping centre in Tallinn.
A cute little shop on a side street in the old town. It’s a family owned shop, run by an artist couple. They offer many handmade items and mostly Estonian designers. This is quite unique and different from the souvenir shops in the old town.
You’ll find jewellery, toys, scarves, lamps, porcelain, artwork and more. The place is small but full of beautiful things worth exploring.
Balti Jaama Turg – Second floor
The second floor of the market next to the train station in Tallinn is full of antique and designer stores. Anything from vintage furniture and clothing to antique glassware and other curious items. You will find all sorts of souvenirs from the Soviet era too, if that’s your thing.
There are several antique shops one next to the other. On the other side of this second floor, there are some modern designer fashion stores.
