A Taste of Nordic Life

Pappa Sven is an authentic Nordic Lifestyle Store located at 33 Union Street, Cooks Hill.

We spent a year living in Skellefteå, which is a small town just below the Arctic Circle in Sweden. It was truly an experience of a lifetime and something that our family will cherish forever.  I immediately fell in love with, not just the Scandinavian design and homewares, but also the beautiful natural environment, artisan culture and wonderfully peaceful existence. I quickly realised that I wanted to somehow bring this home with me and share a part of this with Newcastle, and other Australians.

We opened our little shop on August 30th 2014, and I am very proud to say that it really does feel like a little piece of Scandinavia in the heart of Newcastle.

We are committed to meeting the needs of our customers so please contact us directly if there is something you are looking for!

Our online store is open 24/7, but if you are in Newcastle please come and visit us.
