Whether you’re a lifetime local or just visiting Saint Gallen for the weekend, this spot is the «crème de la crème» for furnishings, accessories and inspiration aplenty. This lovely shop has been operating out of its location since Isabelle and Markus Ammann opened it in 2006. The store is filled with furniture, lighting and accessories sourced from around the world as well lovely products from creatives from St.Gallen (with an emphasis on fair-trade and sustainably sourced goods).
New House or flat?
In addition to the lovely store and their online shop, Isabelle, Caterina and Markus work mainly with interior design. The three are specialists in it and have the necessary experience, talent and knowledge. They have always suitable interior design ideas and a great sense of colors, shapes and materials. So if you rent a new flat or build a new house – they are the right ones for advise! They work beautifully, quickly and affordably. And as I mentioned before, fair trade and sustainability are very important for them.
And now I like to show you some of my favorite products in their store:
Products made in St.Gallen
This store brings together interesting and carefully selected local artists. For example hand-lettered cards, stunning wood pepper mill or transparent balls. The transparent balls have been decorated with original St.Gallen embroidery. They are sold only in this store!!
