Shopper’s Diary: Le Grenier in Kobe, Japan

Julie Carlson March 07, 2011

On our must-visit list: Japanese antiques shop Le Grenier ("attic" in French), from the company behind online shop Billet. The small, monastic space features revolving exhibits—recent installations have featured ceramics by Astier de Villatte and sculptural candles from Tokyo-based Candle Studio Magiera.

N.B. The candles can be ordered from Le Grenier or directly from Candle Studio Magiera; both ship overseas.
