Nothing makes me happier than a good treasure hunt. I just love sifting through a shop of odds and ends, vintage design, brocante and industrial furniture shops, looking for something wonderful. Not knowing what to expect just makes everything you do find feel like a special treat.
It is about finding that one item with a story you don't know about which for you becomes a new story and memory. There is a certain charm to these old finds, these wonderful treasures.
Here you'll find a curated list of the best and most beautiful vintage, brocante and industrial design furniture shops in the Netherlands. The crème de la crème. The pearls, the (not so hidden) gems, the caves, the "I want everything" shops. You can thank me later :)
