Travel: A look at Finland's design riches

(Continued)

McALESTER, Okla. —

For a one-stop look at Finnish clothing, furniture, tableware, jewelry and more, the Design Forum, Erottajankatu 7, is the promotional organization of Finnish design maintained by the Finnish Society of Crafts and Design, founded in 1875.

"In our shop, we have products of nearly 400 designers and companies, the large majority of which are Finnish," said sales coordinator Eija Taljavaara. "There are lots of things here you won’t find anywhere else."
