Va de Retro

Made to measure and industrial furniture are displayed sise by side with pieces from the 50s, Art Deco and classics made of walnut.  In the garden patio Marie will offer you a snack and glass of wine in the shade.  Every item has been discovered by second hand goods dealers in the 4 corners of France and restored with great care by artisanal methods.  And to light up what you choose you can discover the exclusive collection by Magnoluz, unusual lamps created from vintage objects by François giving them a second life and transforming them into unique pieces, authentic works of art.  Here is a bohemian vintage address not to be missed! 
Don't forget to ring Marie just before your visit.  She will assist you at any time, including the weekends.


After perusing the clothes at Pez, go down to the basement to check out some  vin-tage furniture, selections of tables, lamps, chairs, benches, from France, Belgium and London. We love the big tables in either zinc, wood or iron.
