”We purchased a Hay Snowden Kettle from the Finnish Design Shop - unfortunately there was a fault with the Kettle but this was professionally and quickly dealt with by the Olli on the After Sales team, so we can recommend them for their great customer service and after-sales experience.”
”My Pieces of Nordic Happiness exceeded my expectations in every way. From a great website to beautiful design to meticulous packaging, you have never left my Happiness in Pieces! Customer Service is responsive, pleasant and helpful - the 5th star in my rating.”
”I ordered a HAY side table that was on back order everywhere else. It was a few hundred crowns more at Finnish Design Shop, but shipped the next day and was delivered to my door two days later, which I think was worth the extra cost. It came well-packaged, protected and the item is in perfect condition. I’m happy and would shop here again.”
”I love this shop. All of my purchases have felt like a slice of Nordic happiness. Customer service is responsive and shipping is prompt. So nice to shop where I feel like a valued customer.”
”Very good service. Unfortunately some plates were broken. Finnish design shop quickly responds and sends us new ones. That’s how service should be.”
”I’m crazy for the Finnish Design Shop, and all that I’ve bought from them. And when questions arose (regarding a bookshelf that needed clever assembly), their representatives in Finland were so helpful and thoughtful.”
”Both my purchases were excellent quality, priced at a very reasonable level and delivered in a matter of days despite me being the other side of the World. There is simply no way to describe that kind of a Company except amazingly good.”

”Amazing products, beautiful website, speedy and secure postage worldwide... what’s not to love? Nothing cheap here, that’s for sure, but this is perfect for special treats, and there’s IKEA for the rest! ;)”
”First time shopping with Finnish Design Shop and I had a real easy, smooth experience. I had one return item and that was handled effortlessly.”
