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.

Info:

Open: Saturdays and Sundays from 10am – 6pm

Address: 77-81 Rue de Rosiers, Saint-Ouen, Paris
