Show entrance at Bastille Design Center, 74 Boulevard Richard Lenoir 75011
Mini Vintage, Paris’ first-ever event exclusively dedicated to vintage clothing and furniture for children, united exhibitors and visitors in a uniquely intimate show at the Bastille Design Center on Saturday. Spread over two floors in this former 19th century factory, beautifully merchandised rooms offered a veritable treasure trove of furniture, toys, objets d’art and clothing from the 1950s – 80s. An interesting roster of co-sponsors [including everybody’s favorite Milk magazine] ensured the event’s success, which included face-painting, a recycled paper collage course and coloring activites for the kiddos while parents browsed the wares on offer. Official show ‘godmother’ Carole Daprey, author of Mobilier Design Pour Enfants, hosted the inaugural edition of what is sure to be a repeat hit in the years to come.
For those who couldn’t make the show, many of the exhibitors have online shops browsable from any global vantage point. Below, a run-down on our favorite pieces from the show.
