Tucked around the corner from an old Roman Amphitheatre in Pula, Croatia, is a little design store named ‘Komo’, showcasing a beautiful collection of design products.
The shop name Komo is an Istrain word for commode, an essential piece of furniture in every Istrian household which usually found in the bedroom, was used as storage for clothes, linen, jewellery and cosmetics books, lamps or candles placed on top, Komo is a store where you can find everything you need to make your commode.
Selling small Croatian brands from fashion to home decor this little shop is full of great design inspiration. The products on sale are usually hand made and in small series. Komo is a shop that loves simplicity, functionality, quality, beauty and unpretentiousness in design and designers. They often order custom made products for their clients and help customers oversea to receive their products which are available in their country.
The interior designer of the shop Iva Stojkovic told us that the shop is designed almost like a living room to make the customer feel like are having a comfortable shopping experience, ‘We like to have a sincere approach with people and we tell them when a product is not quite the right choice. We don’t want to sell by any cost, but want people to happy when they buy something’. Iva also has her own jewellery brand (Iva Stojkovic Jewelry) which she sells in store. They also have a great little stationary section selling items including Lega Lega Notebooks and diaries and Acro Goal Achiever planners.
