Here, Paris’ bohemian scene eats Italian, drinks German and enjoys oriental nibbles. And once their palate is happy and sated, they get inspired by the goods on offer in nearby shops, goods restored or manufactured with equal lashings of love and care. Suffused with this special attention and affection, Village Popincourt exudes Parisian love through aged 1950s armchairs, 1970s decorations, recent first editions, stunning and stunningly timeless Scandinavian second-hand design objects and charming bric-a-brac – no matter what you are looking for, this creative haven and knickknack paradise is bound to have something you will cherish. The atmosphere is beautiful; somehow, it feels like passing a boundary, like crossing over into a magical film of another era.
On May 29th and 30th, 2013, Village Popincourt invites all lovers of beautiful things to come and celebrate creativity and the arts with a street party full of workshops, concerts, performances and surprises.
