Sukha Amsterdam: The Joy of Life

Last month I talked to you about Droog Amsterdam, a hotel and shop which happened to be our first stop on our BlogTour / Meet the Blogger Amsterdam walking tour. Thanks to Eigen Huis and Interieur  we had the opportunity to visit several design shops which we left in awe. Today I’m going to jump to the last stop on the tour, Sukha. In Sanskrit Sukha means “joy of life” and I think I can speak with my fellow bloggers when I say we all felt extremely joyous as soon as we walked inside!

Sukha was founded by Irene Mertens, who also carefully curates each item in the store. Almost everything sold at Sukha is sustainable and eco-friendly, and almost each piece is Dutch designed and produced. The products are stunning and I wanted to take home everything, especially the large wool blankets.

When I walked in I was blown away by the beauty of the store. The white walls and soft bright lights are perfect for highlighting the unique products. The space is accented by distressed wood which is seen as table tops and fitting room doors.

What separates Sukha from any of the stores we saw  is the artwork. Poems are strategically placed on the walls, furniture pieces and even in the painted rug. I wish they were in English! I tried to google translate the poem on the rug below but I’m not having much luck. Can anyone help me?!

Every 6 weeks the window display is changed, with a new poem and a new theme. I love that they keep it fresh and make changes so often. If I lived in Amsterdam I would be back very often to see what’s new!

The store carries vintage, recycled and newly designed furniture, home accessories, tabletop pieces and even wearable items like scarves. I can’t wait to go back to Amsterdam, and specifically back to Sukha. Have you been? Aren’t you dying to go now!
