Friday Next is in a great location for visitors to Amsterdam, just a few blocks from the Vondelpark; a short stroll from the Museumplein. It's absolutely worth a stop for design lovers, it gives you a good overview of a certain cozy home style AND you can have a tasty lunch while you are at it - they have a small cafe as well.

The shop features furniture and accessories for every room in your house, from coffee cups to chandeliers to comfy chairs.

Near the front of the shop, a spot to sit and enjoy goodies from the cafe. Check out how great the royal blue backdrop works with the mint green table - an unexpected successful color combo!

The muted pastels on this table set are everywhere in Holland, very much in style.

In the window at Friday Next, a small display that typifies the casual, yet very fashion-forward take on style in Holland - nature meets geometry, pastels and brights, a little bit of fresh funkiness and a lot of respect for the past.
