Vintage Design Barcelona

By Brian Gallagher 07.01.14

Long before the era of flat pack furniture and bargain basement design the reigning philosophy was quality and longevity. A piece of furniture was an investment for life not a fashion accessory to be discarded from one season to the next. A renewed appreciation for these iconic works is reflected by a group of Vintage Design shops recently opened in Barcelona, whether they specialise in timeless Scandinavian modern, Art Deco classics or groovy 1970s disco era these shops are the perfect antidote for Ikea-phobia.
