Frenchman Gregory Donatien and his Danish wife Louise Vyff have united their stylish cultural heritage to create Maison Nordik, a new boutique in the foothills of Montmartre selling mid-century modern Scandinavian furniture and home accessories, bringing clean Nordic design to the north of Paris. The two-floor, 100m2 space showcases carefully sourced pieces - Arne Jacobsen tables, HW Klein chairs, Svend Middelboe lamps - that the couple seek out in Denmark and ship over to the shop, selecting only items that are in tip top condition. Mixed in with the pristine vintage furniture are equally covetable accessories such as graphic knitted cushions from contemporary brand Lucky Boy Sunday or iconic design items such as Finnish architect Mogens Lassen's geometric candle holders. The shop also sells its own brand scented candles in fragrances such as tomato leaf and fig that are, in keeping with the rest of the shop, of a superbly high quality. A great addition to the 18th arrondissement.
