I have the privilege to be one of the first habitants of the Eastern Docklands in Amsterdam, actually I have seen building most of it and it’s a great not to crowded residential area. As the formal harbour of Amsterdam, the North America line is still departing from here and many huge cruise ships can be seen from time to time. The many old industrial buildings and warehouses are perfectly blending with modern architecture on the different peninsulas and make the area to what it is.
LOFT Amsterdam recently opened their doors in one of the industrial buildings at KNSM laan and I am really happy to see another great store opening at the island, see some of the other stores and how to reach this area in the blog of my Amsterdam city guide. LOFT Amsterdam offers a great selection of Scandinavian design and home accessories, Dutch design and fair trade home and fashion brands. In the basement larger interior items are placed in a home-like setting.
