Shopper’s Diary: Arxe in Barcelona

Julie Carlson August 16, 2013

Founded by Gloria Margenat in Barcelona in 2008, Arxe is a design studio focused on creating furniture and one-of-a-kind textiles for the home out of salvaged industrial materials. The principals “search across Europe to find antique furniture and old industrial materials–wood, leather, iron, steel, and textiles,” which they bring back to their Barcelona warehouse to be refashioned into one-off or limited-edition pieces (such as the Double Duty Beach Towel, available at Anthropologie). To see more of the studio’s work, go to Arxe; a small selection of their work is offered for sale in Barcelona at the Woki Organic Market, which the studio also designed.
