Maison Vintage: second-hand furniture comes to Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche
A lamp from the 70s? Check. A comfortable vintage chair? Yes, absolutely. An antique wooden sideboard? In stock. But perhaps not for long: Le Bon Marché is going second-hand by opening a space dedicated to vintage furniture.
the vintage comes to the lighting space
The excitement starts to build. You get the goosebumps. Your mind is racing. You know that feeling when you come across a piece that you never knew you needed. If it’s love at first sight, you have to act quickly and make your purchase. The piece is second-hand and you wouldn’t want to miss out (because it is one of a kind). What’s this space called? Maison Vintage.
1 space, infinite possibilities
The space is unique, just like the pieces you will find there. Everything has been sourced from vintage experts with the utmost care — which is hardly surprising since Decorative Arts have always played such an important role at Le Bon Marché. Period chairs and tables are paired with minimalist lighting. Do you want to make the change to second-hand? It's now or never.
Rare gems to be found
Wander around the Maison Vintage space at Le Bon Marché, on the 2nd floor above La Grande Épicerie de Paris, and (re)discover iconic designs from last century — the selection of pieces will of course vary depending on availability. There are creations by Bodil Kjaer, Claudio Salocchi, Florence Knoll and Charles and Ray Eames.
Do these names sound familiar? No problem if not: make the most of your visit by browsing the shelves in the design section of the Le Bon Marché bookshop and combine usefulness with beauty by purchasing an attractive coffee table book.
