An antique aesthetic
We all love taking trinkets and knickknacks home with us from our travels to be reminded of the destinations that have stolen our hearts. If you’re looking for the perfect souvenir to bring home with you from northwest Istria, Brtonigla has some unique options.
This hilltop town is home to Maison Chic, a local, shabby-chic store, that produces and sells handmade creations from furniture to ornaments. Shabby-chic is the ideal blend of pulled-together and carefree style that can be incorporated into nearly any home design and is effortlessly recreated. The artistic, yet elegant vibe that is achieved with shabby chic design guarantees that each piece of furniture is unique in its own way. The majority of the time, the “shabby” part of “shabby chic” actually refers to furniture or items that appear to be slightly weathered or antique. Maison Chic achieves this distressed look by infusing a bit of history into all of the pieces that they produce, ensuring that every product is one-of-a-kind. Some of the merchandise you might find in their store includes decorative furniture, painted furniture, wrought iron jewellery, crocheted handbags, stylish lampshades, ceramic jewellery such as earrings and necklaces, as well as decorative photos and even hand-sewn decorations for the home.
Go ahead and add a dash of Istria to your home (or to your closet) with one of their chic and unique pieces! Head to their Facebookpage to see some of their latest creations.
