BLAFRE’s products are available several places in the UK, from Kidsen in London to theNorthRockgallery at the Shetland Isles.

To find your nearest stockist and for all other UK queries, please contact BLAFRE’s UK distributor, Nordic Barn. “Nordic” because all their products are designed in a Nordic country and “Barn” has a dual meaning; either simply a large building or in the three Scandinavian countries (and Scottish ‘bairn’!) Barn means kids or children and, as they offer ‘Nordic designed gifts for kids’. Nordic Barn represent both BLAFRE and Oskar&Ellen and will be present at the Top Drawer (design fair) 16 – 18 January 2011.
