Lifestory - A Scandinavian design-led store

Hello and welcome to Lifestory!

I'm Susan and together with my team we bring together a truly original collection of Scandinavian design-led goods alongside locally-made products in our physical store and on our website.

Lifestory is an independent business, founded in 2014, and we love working with local makers, ceramicists, artists and jewellers alongside Scandinavian design brands like Ferm Living and HAY. New stock arrives almost every week and have some exciting deliveries coming soon, check out our New In collection to see them first. 

At our bricks-and-mortar Edinburgh store we are open 7 days, and it is from here that we pack & ship all of your online orders with great care and attention.

Delivery is free on orders over £59

"This independent store is a temple to Scandinavian (and especially Danish) aesthetics"

"Lifestory, Edinburgh is a lifestyle and coffee shop with a strong Scandinavian influence...where goods from local artisans and makers sit comfortably alongside popular Scandinavian brands."

"Light, bright and full of charm, this Scandinavian-inspired homeware shop is a cool slice of calm in Edinburgh’s New Town."

"Owner Susan Doherty has made Lifestory a constantly evolving destination for lovers of Scandinavian design and lifestyle."

"If I was to ever open a shop, I’d like it to be just like Lifestory; a home and lifestyle shop, and one of my favourite discoveries during our trip to the city."
