What It Costs To Secure An Apartment with Paris RentalDownload your free guide here
Furniture, like fashion, affords lifetimes of use to second and even third owners. A well-chosen piece adds character to a room, saves the environment – and lasts longer than newer purchases.
The “vintage village” is located in the heart of Paris’s, just outside the périphérique at rue des Rosiers in Saint-Ouen. Wander through the different showrooms, steeped in history. In one building, an old chandelier workshop, you’ll find certified pieces from top 1950s – 1970s names in design, including Jean Prouvé, Charlotte Perriand, Serge Mouille and more. Open on Saturdays and Sundays from September onwards, why not spend an afternoon vintage-hunting?
Are you in the midst of restyling your rental? Many outlets will buy or trade your gently used furniture, evaluates and estimates vintage furniture from their bygone collections. Post photos your vintage Ikea furnishings online and buy new vintage furniture.
There’s also the world of online selling. On Etsy you can buy or sell unique and eclectic pieces. Another great French online resource for bargain fittings and furnishings: Leboncoin.fr.
