4. Design Shops
Right now, the Finnish model is so trendy, and it's easy to see why. Creation here is a mode of life, more than mere beautiful objects, and something to be easily integrated into reality — part of everything surrounding you, but without drawing or distracting attention. Attention to detail and continuity is paramount – and the epitome of good design is an inextricable, timeless existence, meaning that anytime you see something you want, you know that you're going to get it for life. As the well-known Finnish artist and architect Alvar Aalto famously said, "Nothing is ever revived, but it does not die completely, and what was once born will still emerge in a new form."
