Habitat was founded in 1964 by Sir Terence Conran. It became famous for modern homeware and furniture, and revolutionized the way Britains bought home furnishings.
British furniture and homewares brand Habitat has recently opened a new store in the north of Paris. Located in Saint-Ouen, home to the city’s biggest flea market, Marche aux Puces de Saint-Ouen (also the largest in the world), Habitat 1964 is a large warehouse space dedicated to all things vintage.
Bringing together a collection of some of its signature designs dating back to the 1964, Habitat's newest store is a homage to what the brand does best: furniture and housewares. It's not cheap, like most of the things on offer in the Marche aux Puces, but you could easily spend a couple of hours here wandering around and perusing the designs, for inspiration. I particularly liked the 60s style white vases and the director's chairs. And when you start to get a bit peckish, there's a cute cafe run by Tartes Klugar with cakes, quiches and hotdogs on offer, so you can make an afternoon of it.
Open: Saturdays and Sundays from 10am – 6pm
Address: 77-81 Rue de Rosiers, Saint-Ouen, Paris
