This very big vintage shop focuses on design classics from the twentieth century. Don’t expect to find a bargain here, but do know that all lamps, furniture and accessories are original.

OBJETS TROUVÉS

Brunnenstrasse 169

Magdalena and Robert have a beautiful selection of carefully restored antique furniture, but they specialise in tables. All of these tables are customised and completely handmade from sustainable materials like glass, steel, wood or stone.

CHAIRS


Fehrbelliner Str. 25
Prenzlauer Berg
+49 (0)30 4435 5723
www.chairsdesign.com

Whether it’s the famous black leather armchair by Eames, the functional pieces by Mies van der Rohe or the orange Egg by Arne Jacobsen, chances are you will find one of those iconic chairs here, next to a few lamps, couches and tables. The shop on the beautiful Zionskirchplatz is bright and a little bit chaotic. It’s only open in the afternoon.

J&V FINEST INDUSTRIAL VINTAGE FURNITURE

Barbarossastr. 61
Schöneberg
+49 (0)163 2907 831
www.jandv.eu

Jools and Vince sell industrial furniture exclusively; so don’t expect the great design classics here – although the French Jielde lamps might be considered as such. The owners share a love of artefacts from the former GDR, which have a certain charm about them, being witnesses of a very specific time in history.

ORIGINAL IN BERLIN

Karl-Marx-Allee 83
Friedrichshain
+49 (0)30 6093 6046
www.originalinberlin.com

500 m² filled with mid-century design furniture and located in a fantastic building on the impressive Karl Marx Allee: what’s not to love? This Berlin showroom not only features the iconic vintage pieces but also a nice collection of contemporary accessories designed by Carl Auböck.
