Looking for inspiring addresses? Located a few steps from the MEP in the Marais , this Ali Baba lifestyle cave is definitely worth a visit if you are looking for furniture to find, vintage tableware , pretty decorative nuggets, a stylish lamp as well as good little gift ideas. at a cool price.
Passion for craftsmanship
Creare is first and foremost a family affair with Maya and Stéphanie, mother and daughter, passionate about travel and know-how, who have assembled in this fantasized bazaar a compilation of everything they would like to have at home.
And in full confinement, their concept store clearly appears as the paradise of the Parisian of good taste. Here even the Andrée Jardin brush becomes an object of desire and the kitsch of a melon carafe is gaining ground… That is to say.
Zero copy. Even less inspiration. “ We like authenticity” , assume the owners. “ We showcase craftsmanship and we prefer to offer china with our favorite finds or to offer real work as an editor like the Disderot lamps. ”
An Ali Baba's cave of lifestyle
Everyone will find their happiness. Trouvaille des chips: a small Scandinavian 60's wooden desk (850 €) on which enthroned folding lamps by an Italian designer passionate about origami (290 €). Not forgetting the waxed concrete lamp by Parisian craftsman Girard Sudron (€ 130) or vintage silver tableware by Marie-Claude Bérard (€ 250 a pitcher).
There are some exceptional pieces such as the sublime Italian In Design table, an exclusive prototype in Paris, surrounded by 70's chairs in all colors. At his side, a 60's vinyl cabinet (250 €) and a Baumann chair (280 €) are transformed into unique pieces thanks to the know-how (of which only he has the secret) of an Italian craftsman who covers the furniture of a linen wrap to protect them.
A really sharp selection
Among the ultra-sharp selection, some nuggets stand out. Starting with the furiously ingenious KNINDUSTRIE pot label (from € 60). Sublime dishes (which are also stoves) in which we cook on the fire ... before placing them at the table. Because the lid turns ... into a trivet. Just awesome.
Not to mention the ultimately cool and trendy Kanz candlesticks (€ 35 to € 45), made in Venice by a contemporary architectural studio that has brought glass craftsmanship up to date on the lagoon.
