A bright white envelope of a shop in the center of Rotterdam, the recently opened Pantoufle is the brainchild of Esther Blankers, a former advertising agency executive. Blankers stocks a well-edited selection of goods from around the world, including Remodelista favorites like Futagami, Fog Linen, John Julian, and more. “I love the simplest things that elevate life,” she says. (In case you’re wondering, the shop is named after the kangaroo Pantoufle from the movie Chocolat with Juliette Binoche.)
