Ordning&Reda is a Swedish stationary company. We hadn't heard of them until yesterday when we were strolling the sub-basement level of Vancouver's Hudson's Bay department store. We stumbled upon their shop and made a mental note to return. Now we've got an explanation what they're about, from the Vancouver Sun:

Ordning&Reda, the Swedish stationery company known for its candy-coloured paper goods, has landed in Vancouver at The Hudson’s Bay Company.
The shop-in-shop marks the first retail location for the company in B.C., and the second in Canada, with another location at The Bay’s Toronto flagship. The Bay is also the first North American retailer to carry Ordning&Reda, which means “neat and tidy” in Swedish.
“The Bay is the natural location to introduce Ordning&Reda in the Canadian market,” said Thomas Perez, President of Bodum USA, Inc. in a release.
“Hudson Bay Company is excellent at creating a custom retail experience for the consumer, and we felt this type of curation would be perfect for the brand.”
Already a mainstay in European markets, the Vancouver Ordning&Reda shop, features a full range of products including an extensive collection of paper goods and office organizational products, including notebooks, agendas, tech and travel accessories and more."
Their prices are reasonable the their merchandise colourful. We checked their website and they have free-standing boutiques and department store concessions mainly in Europe. It appears the Canadian shops are the only two in North America. Their website is below:
