La Boquería – Barcelona

I am on my way to Barcelona, one of my favourite cities in the world so far (still lots to explore). Barcelona is “The City” when we talk about design in Spain. I am very lucky to have friends in town and it feels like going back home. La Boquería is an old market by…

Skultuna – Stockholm

A few weeks ago I had the chance to spend a weekend in Stockholm, a city I have always wanted to visit and that left me hungry for more Sweden. We ate lots of meatballs and enjoyed the hot Swedish summer. I was expecting to bump into lots of Scandinavian design. Sadly I am used to London…

PET lamp at Vinçon

Every time I visit Barcelona, I like to walk down Paseig de Gràcia and stroll around Vinçon. This shop is a design institution in the city. The building itself is a wonderful piece from 1899, designed by Antoni Rovira i Rabassa and it was owned by the famous painter Ramón Casas. Vinçon is one of those…

Jose Gourmet

One of the “must go” for Christmas shopping in London has to be The Conran Shop. Either in Chelsea or Marylebone, there is always something for every budget and lots of interesting design for nosing around. One of those little things that caught my eye was a can of sardines, something simple and ordinary. But here is…

There are plenty of quirky and small shops around the city centre, but Designer Zoo is worth crossing the sex shops of Vesterbro into the “new hipster” bit of Copenhagen. This shop is a very interesting guild of designers, mostly ceramic,…

Salvadó Mallol – Artisan Jeweller

This in another unique shop you can find in Barcelona. Bespoke jewellery. Walking along Carrer Verdi in Gracia neighborhood (one of my favourite and former place of residency for The Hunter) you can find this small shop. It has a very narrow window display that makes you want to get in and find out more….

Boo – Barcelona

Another interesting finding from Barcelona, highly recommended by The Hunter: Boo – Fashion Selection of unique pieces with heritage. This shop stands out for its design and atmosphere. Alex is the owner and creative mind behind the shop decoration. It is not a huge space but he made the most of it. Black envelops everything,…

Jonathan Adler – Pottery

I discovered Jonathan Adler’s work very recently when I visited his shop on Sloane Avenue. But he is a very well known potter, designer and author. In his shop I found lots of interesting pieces, not only pottery but cool rugs and furniture. I would define it as fun and colourful. He launched the first…
