About us

Bringing design to your home


Welcome to Kubuni Scandinavia. 

Created by Kenyan, Jacqueline Olesi Christiansen, Kubuni Scandinavia is home to a contemporary collection of design in various forms, including homewares and gifts – all handpicked from a pool of renown Scandinavian designers and a few international talent. 

Inspired by her stay in Denmark and its eclectic style, together with her passion for uniqueness and high quality, Jacqueline and her sister Diana, who lives in Kenya have created a unique online destination for people who love to live through design. Kubuni Scandinavia was born from an appreciation for superior craftsmanship, design aesthetics, form and above all design functionality of the Scandinavian designers. The design is unique and elegant, at the same time, simplicity and high utility value is the common denominator for the Scandinavian products. 

The online web shop offers a wide range of stylish and useful gifts and treats for the home. Our product series come in the categories of cooking, serving, living, bath and outdoor. In all, a wide range of tools for the home, so you can surround yourself with good design anywhere in the home that is a pleasure to look at, use and own. Here, you will find our wide selection of candle holders, tealight holders and vases, classic and new ranges, all created to give your home a touch of glass art, traditional craftsmanship and quality design. This is also where you will find many great gift ideas for special occasions – or just for yourself. 

Our design philosophy is to bring products to Kenyan homes that become accessible utility items not reserved for special occasions only. On the contrary, we want them to become an integral part of a more beautiful and elegant everyday life. We want to inspire you and be behind innovative accessories for the home and the dining table – from unique, hand-blown glass designs and professional kitchen utensils, to the extensive home living collection.

Start here the next time you're looking for a unique gift idea and don't be surprised if you come away with something for yourself as well. This website is extremely tempting..... 

The web shop was opened in 2014. The products are currently marketed and sold via the online shop; however, our intention is to open a flag shop in Nairobi soon.
