The Rozengracht is an ugly, busy, car-filled street. It has wide car lanes and a tram line running through it, and there is an overall general lack of ‘ambiance’.
So why visit Rozengracht?
The Rozengrachts has a bustling interior design scene, with no less than 15 interior-related shops on a stretch of 200 meters!
Rozengracht #8-12 Kitsch Kitchen - colourful, playful and, often ‘floral’ products of all sorts.
Rozengracht #17 De Blue Gold Fish - fine arts and crafts, light, mirrors, clocks and personal gifts. Mention you saw Blue Gold Fish on the internet and receive a 5% discount.

Three interior design shops offering you everything you need for you home. Any major European brand (from Italian to Scandinavian, and of course Dutch) is sold here. The main ‘connector’ is the style: modern and frill-free.
Rozengracht # 231 Raw Materials - unusual furniture, interior accessories and decorations. Each product has it's own story, so don’t hesitate to ask for the shop attendant’s assistance!
Rozengracht # 233 ‘t Meubeltje - Since 1984 this shop has been selling rotan and reed furniture and accessories.
And in the ‘extension’ of the Rozengracht, past the Westertoren, the street is named Raadhuisstraat. On number 55 you’ll find Nikoo Lighting, which is the lamp & lighting shop of Amsterdam selling design classics from all over the world, as well as modern design from Italy.
