Where to go to Upgrade your Furniture in Barcelona
With the end of restrictions in sight, now is the perfect time to give your quarantine realm the interior refresh it needs.
With all of us having spent more time than we would have liked within the 4 walls of our houses and apartments over the past 12 months, and seeing our apartments transform into gyms, restaurants, schools, and offices; many of us have grown sick of the place we call home.
Although, here at Casamona International we of course would always encourage the purchase or rental of a new home for the ultimate spring refresh, (see our options for rental properties here, and sales properties here) this is not always a viable option.
Casamona are also able to offer advice and consultation on renovation firms with whom we have partnerships.
However, sometimes in order to feel as though you are in a new space, an upgrade of décor and furniture is all you need. In Barcelona, we are fortunate enough to be spoilt for choice when it comes to boutique furniture stores that mean you don’t have to navigate the thousands of pages of a certain Swedish furniture website that shall not be named.
We have amalgamated a list of furniture stores that will cater for every taste:
Ikiru: If lockdown has left you with the urge to “Marie Kondo” your living space Ikiru will give you the complete Japanese style makeover you’re craving. With the original concept having stemmed from the traditional Japanese futon, but expanding over the past 3 decades to include all types of furniture including everything from dividing screens to bed frames and storage facilities, Ikiru will outfit your home to provide you with the perfect feng shui to optimise your living space.
