TO DO | SHOPPING
Marché du Lez, the creative hot-spot of Montpellier, has a new resident. Since the summer of 2017, concept store “La Maison Pernoise” opened its doors on the grounds of Marché du Lez. La Maison Pernoise in Montpellier is my kind of shop. It has it all: great style, good feeling for design in combination with (very) desirable products. It gives me loads of inspiration. And an even bigger wishlist…
The concept store is installed in an old renovated barn and offers more than 250 m2 floor space. The building itself, with its high windows and black bricks, gives the whole an industrial look. Although it is a shop, it doesn’t feel like it. Sure, you can buy every product you see, but I have the feeling it is also about inspiring visitors.
The great thing about La Maison Pernoise is that you feel the personality of the shop owner Lau Dejente. Accessories, furniture, lighting, photography, tableware, pillows, rugs all are selected with care from all around the world. Products from Mediterranean artisans are combined with brands like House Doctor, Cinq Etoiles, Honoré, Nomad India, Jars, to name a few.
Tips and tricks
La Maison Pernoise is not only a concept store. They also organise styling master classes. Or offer their help with interior design. Lau and her team have plenty of tips and tricks and are very willing to bring their products to your home to directly test how it goes in your interior. In the store itself, you will get a lot of inspiration as well. Everywhere you look you see examples of how you can style your home. Cosy little corners are dressed with wooden stools, colourful rugs, beautiful tableware. Enough creativity to try at home.
The concept store might represent a lot of different styles, they all have the slow living and travel feeling in common. I am utterly happy with the arrival of La Maison Pernoise in Montpellier. Too bad I don’t live next door. Or maybe that’s for the best. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to do some serious restyling at home…
