1. Home on earth
The most exotic of the home stores in Barcelona
! As soon as you get in you'll be surrounded by the serenity as well as the exoticism of the atmosphere. All of their products are hand-made, using organic and sustainable raw materials, and traded fairly. The purpose is to create the least amount of environmental impact possible, and to make their products as natural as possible. They sell decorations for home as well as garden pieces. This is for you if you want your interior to be more green and less industrial, if you care about environment and want to bring exoticism to your life. Where to find them ?

2. Gal Gallery
This one is not just one of the random home stores in Barcelona
, it is actually an antique. So you'll find interesting and unique pieces from all around the world in this very elegant establishment. They have a wide range of style from ethnic to contemporary and there are all types of prices. The clientele is composed of decoration experts (decorators, hotels, restaurants...). This one is made for you if you're looking for a refined and unique interior. The store is located carrer san eusebio, 47.
3. Amato Sole
This one is my favorite of all of the home stores in Barcelona
. It's all about quality of the material : organic and aged. All of the furnitures are designed and constructed by the owners : Anna Maria Amato and Ramon Sole. They also recycle broken objects to give them a new life. Furthermore they make pieces to order if you have a precise idea of what you want. You'll be charmed by the rustic style of their furnitures. Find them on carrer Perill, 39 on Gracia neighborood. Check more info on Amato Sole Website
4. Aliens 4 Sale
For sure, the most contemporary and design oriented of the home stores in Barcelona
. Opened very recently (2014) this store is not really typical, but is certainly really interesting if you love art and science fiction. They sell alien sculptures made in every possible material: silicon, resins, latex and so on, crafted by the sculptress Ariadna Canela. This is kind of weird but very interesting if you'd like to have some, well, surprising decorations at home. They are located on Passeig de Sant Joan, 5. You can check their entire collection in Aliens 4 Sale website
5. Nordic Think
As you can guess with its name, this shop sells Nordic designed objects and decoration for your house. The online store opened in 2010 and the showroom, located next to plaza Tetuan, in 2011. It's a good place to go if you like bright open spaces and contemporary furnishings. You can also shop for your children : they sell toys, lamps and wallpaper for kids. Find the store on carrer Consell de cent, 412 on the neighborhood of Eixample. Learn more on Nordic think website
This one is a little bit different from the other homes stores in Barcelona
. Actually it is more like a concept store in which you'll find some gorgeous objects selected by the owners : a Barcelona based interior designer and a Madrid based art director. It's just the top of the top ! It's all contemporary design but not in the way you usually find it : it's not the classic elitist view of contemporary art and design. As a matter of fact you'll find a lot of local designer prototypes at any kind if prices. You'll fall in love I can assure you. They are located on carrer Portal Nou, 5. Find more info on Homevice website
7. La Variété
Another original one : the concept of La Variété is to take existant object, furniture, broken or not and transform them, re-imagine them and re-create them to give them a new life, to obtain something really different than it was before. Interesting isn't it ? The inspiration of the owner and designer, the french Ricard Commeleran, is mostly from northern Thailand, where he went to explore nature. You'll find pieces made in wood, colorful bracelets and much more. Find them on carrer Pintor Fortuny, 30, and for more info check La Variété website.
8. Maisons du Monde
This is one of the most complete home stores in Barcelona
. As a matter of fact, you can find pretty much everything, wardrobes, armchairs, TV, bookcases, beautiful furniture, sofas... At the beginning it was meant to promote an exotic style and atmosphere with objects from all around the world (Maisons du monde means Houses of the world in French), but they expanded their style and now offer different styles and inspirations : exotic, romantic, baroque, vintage, classic, contemporary... So basically you should find what you want, no matter what you are looking for. Good to know : they also have an outdoor and a junior collection. Also, you can shop online on their website.
