When Heidi Nigen visited Copenhagen, she fell in love with the city, the people and the way they incorporate their cozy and modern aesthetic into everyday life.
When she came home, she tried to recreate the look and feel of Denmark in her home, but found few resources -- and the ones that she could find were very high-end and furniture focused, rather than home decor, gifts, and accessories. And so Peek Keep was born...The Mountain View-based online store offers a wide range of Scandinavian-designed home and personal accessories. The selection is well edited, and browsing the site feels like you're wandering through a clean, easy, simple and calm world.
Porcelain Bottles with Platinum Decals, $72
Baby Alpaca Throws from Denmark, $150 sale
Coe & Waito Vases ($45-$75)
Ivana Helsinki Cotton Apron, $45 sale

In the Peek Keep world, everything is elegant and organic, beautiful and functional. And, to top it all off, despite the high-quality craftsmanship, it's affordable.
