Bonjour encore to Le Grenier (‘the attic’) - a name chosen with the sense of excitement and appreciation for the layers of time which go with the discovery firstly of the attic itself, then of its contents, and then of the stories those things could or will tell...
Also with the hope of the attic's owner, that its contents may be a blessing to those who pass.
Some items are treasures from last century's or the previous century's past, some more recently put aside, just in case a special person may have need of them.
The attic's owner, Kate, has a background in fields which seek to nurture and provide, including parenting, primary school teaching, and Interior Design, layered upon a childhood spent with the appreciation of the simple, the smell of beeswax, and the pursuit of beauty in the context of the functional.........And then, the hope to make memories for others...............
The other appeal of attic finds of course is their bargain status, so you'll find our prices are lower than any you'll find in retail shops (if you find the same item! We try to carry pieces you won't see everywhere, or maybe even anywhere - this side of France / Italy / Eastern Europe.....etc!!)
Plus, delivery charges are as low as we can find (no profit and sometimes free if we're passing!) See our Delivery/Shipping page for more information.
We specialise in pieces with a sense of history, or those which evoke a treasured time or place in one’s memories or imagination. We favour the simple, rustic, well crafted, or items carrying the patina of age to the new and polished.
Our 'decorating' style is about creating homes and places for people to live life well together.Perhaps this is why we are so influenced by European country styles of decoration, particularly a French 'style de vie' : objects and decorations designed,selected,chosen or kept to reflect family history,and/or promote a sense of comfort, calm or togetherness.
If you are looking for a particular item that looks like 'our style', let us know, and we'll be happy to try to source them for you..
Our wish is that you will be as thrilled with your purchases from Le Grenier as if you'd discovered them in a secret attic.
Our sincere hope is that they add to the sense of being ‘at home’ at your place.
