The city of Copenhagen continues to delight in so many ways, What I have really loved is reconnecting with the city and even going back to places I know I loved the last time around.

One such place is The Design Museum, Danmark. Here is a place rich with iconic pieces by the great Danish Designers such as  Verner Panton, Finn Juhl, Arne Jacobsen and Nanna Ditzel to name a few! I love the design of this museum which also boasts a great store and cafe, the best bit is you can take your lunch out into the sun drenched garden that is located in the middle of the complex. 

It was originally a hospital that got converted into a Museum in the 1920's. The museum houses the biggest library for design in Scandinavia. It also hosts a fully annotated and illustrated database of all furniture made in Denmark from 1900 to 2000.

Here in this post is also some of my wanderings around Copenhagen, With another week here I have many more updates from Denmark heading your way.
