Scandinavian Market Opening Reception at Ackland Museum Store

Ackland Museum Store Collaborates on New Curated Market

The Ackland Museum Store is proud to present the fourth in a series of curated specialty markets for the Holiday Season. This year, we bring you our Scandinavian Market, including goods from Denmark, Sweden, and Finland. We are excited this year to be partnering with local furniture store Palette & Parlor. Ivy and John Simon, the owners of Palette & Parlor, are North Carolina natives who, some years ago, lived in Copenhagen, Denmark.  It was there that their admiration for the elegant simplicity and craftsmanship of Danish Design was born.  Their store, Palette & Parlor in Chapel Hill is a treasure trove of modern furniture—much of it of Scandinavian design.  The great modern design featured there inspired us to invite them to share in our Scandinavian Market this holiday season.  These modern furniture icons are the perfect backdrop for our varied wares of Danish, Swedish, and Finnish design.  We hope our festive Scandinavian Market will inspire others to find fun and innovative ways to collaborate with those in their community and beyond. 

The Scandinavian Market opens with a special reception on Friday, 13 November 2015, 6-8PM.

The Market will continue through Sunday, 31 December 2015. For more information, please contact the Ackland Museum Store at 919.962.0216.

Located on the southeast corner of Franklin and Columbia Streets, the Ackland Museum Store supports the educational mission of the Ackland Art Museum: to animate, inspire, and transform people's lives with works of art. 

As an academic unit of The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, The Ackland Art Museum collects, preserves, and presents great art to educate, inspire, and engage the University and its regional, national, and international audiences in free and open inquiry.
