Best utility bike collection?

Italians are famous for their road racing bikes, Americanos with their MTB's, French randonneur, just to mention some. All countries have had their own bicycle brands and factories in some point of their history. But Dutch still have faith in utility bikes and bit of Danish too.

Let's define utility in cycling: Utility bike can be used in everyday life, rain or shine, summer or winter. Carrying children, animals and stuff. Work horses some may say. Good quality with lot's of useful details. They are made not for sport, but transport. They are stylish, made to fit your looks in easy sundays ice cream pickup's with kids, busy monday business mornings and on your way to saturday dinner with friends.

De Fietsfabriek has a nice collection of utility bikes. Got the pleasure to visit their shop in Stockholm. I was mostly impressed their utility bikes and so were some locals too. Not to mention their European Unioin Quality Award they got in year 2011.
