From the street outside, Frame Store in Amsterdam appears to just play host to a few rows of graphic prints and pretty frames, but venture further into the “concept” store and you’re in for a big surprise. Behind the art (and we mean literally behind the art) are all sorts of treasures for you to browse through, ranging from high-end fashion and beauty products to books and magazines to, well, more prints. It’s like popping open a really chic version of Pandora’s box. Geometric lamps from the likes of Jørn Utzon, fancy crockery from Faye Toogood, stools made of cork, sunglasses made of wood, artwork from Linda Linko, and an elephant-shitload more cool things to spice up your home/self with.
Frame Store is also a platform for the eponymous “Frame” magazine, one of the world’s biggest interior design rags, as well as promoting a couple of other publications on architecture and contemporary art. This place really is a hotspot for the creative denizens of the city. Tag along to one of their many events (think arty, foody, fashiony) or simply drop by for a mooch around.
