For today’s post, I decided to write a list of 10 of my favorite design shops in Berlin.
Berlin is a city that I have learned to love (apart from the weather!) and that surprises me every time I visit it. Maybe it is because I have a special tourist guide that brings me around to discover new neighborhoods and hidden corners of the city. She is Bree (nickname for Maria Brigida) and she is one of my dearest friends who moved there few years back. With her help, I have prepared a list of the most beautiful and innovative design shops in Berlin.
It was not easy to select only 10 because Berlin attracts artists, stylists, architects and creatives of all kinds from all over the world and it is therefore no surprise that there are many design shops, showrooms and concept stores.
So, here is my list of 10 design shops to visit in Berlin.
1 – HAUSEN
Hausen in Friedrichshain is a shop specialized in Scandinavian design. In the shop you will find everything: lamps, decorations, blankets, rugs, tableware of the main Nordic brands such as Hay, Ferm Living, Woud, String, Design Letters and Fine Little Days.
Krossener Str. 25 /10245 Berlin
2 – GREEN LIVING
A 350-square-meter showroom located in a former brewery in the Prenzlauer Berg district. Green Living selects products and furniture that, in addition to having a beautiful design, are made of natural or recycled materials and produced in a sustainable way. The founder’s philosophy is in fact to consider the entire life cycle of a product. This means not only the use of eco-friendly, non-toxic or recycled materials, produced in a sustainable way, but also that the product could be recycled once it is out of use. For example, we can find Woodnotes carpets made of paper yarn, Riva1920 furniture that uses only naturally fallen tree woods or Tojo ecological furniture. Green Living also offers a consultancy service with its team of interior architects, carpenters, interior decorators and light designers.
Schönhauser Allee 36, 10435 Berlin
3 – PARKHAUS
Parkaus is a concept store located in the Mitte district in an old industrial building. You will find many products such as furniture, household items, lights, food and drinks. The products change continuously and sometimes you will find only one piece in stock because the objects are selected by the owners during their travels and taken to the store also with the aim of introducing new countries and new cultures. In addition to these products, the concept store also sells products of renowned brands such as Mariage Frères, Vilac, Mauviel, Theresienthal, Deyrolle and products of young international brands such as Nailmatic, Candylab Toys, Minois, Astier de Villate and many others.

You can find beautiful, useful and durable objects such as hand-embroidered cushions, golden scissors, glass objects or vintage toys. This eclectic mix of objects makes the store very charming.

5 – DISTRICT SIX
District Six is a lovely design shop located in the district of Kreuzberg. Originally born only as an online store, it was later transformed into a physical store. The difference compared to other stores is that District Six focus only on design from South Africa, so expect lots of bright and vibrant colors and lots of different patterns. In addition to design, decoration and textile products, you will also find jewels, accessories and clothes.

Completely renovated, now Hallesches Haus is a large, bright space that combines a stunning interior design boutique (with an interesting selection of local and international brands) with a cafè / restaurant serving coffee, breakfasts, lunches and snacks (with an outdoor garden too) . The selection of products is amazing, you will find products in industrial and vintage style ranging from clothing to kitchen products, from gardening tools to books and posters, from lamps to furniture and decorative items. A place worth a visit.

This shop / home allows visitors to see how the various pieces and products of the brand come together to create a real home.
