Owner Annika Ek, a Swedish native who has lived in Canada for 17 years, is bringing the Swedish home furnishings she loves to North America. Ek says she was tired of not being able to get the stylish quality products she wanted to decorate her own home in an easy way. The company is also responding to a cocooning trend and increasing interest in interior design, including the clean lines of Scandinavian home decor.
Truly Swedish Design (TM) is based in Ottawa, Canada, and is registered to do business out of New York State. Ek has set up her business so her customers in North America don’t have to worry about duties and brokerage fees, they only pay what they see and can shop with ease for Scandinavian home decor.
“I am excited about bringing products from companies like Pappelina (R), Växbo Lin (R) and Himla (R) to North America. I search for lines that combine beauty, function, quality and innovation that are anchored in the Swedish design tradition," says Ek.
Ek, who loves the way the Swedish homes traditionally are updated during the year to reflect the change of seasons, will not only sell products but will also educate her customers on how to decorate with a Scandinavian touch. She offers a free e-book on her website and will share tips, tools and trends from the Swedish decor scene on a regular basis.
