Inspired by his travels and friends Guillaume Deroy made his long time dream a reality when he opened Nordik Market, a concept shop devoted to Scandinavian design. Coming from a background in fashion, Deroy is able to use his eye to create a Scandinavian universe in the heart of the Marais made up up vintage furniture from the 50s & 60s, as well as newer, original creations that you can’t find elsewhere in France.
One of the charming parts about Nordik Market is that it feels more like a home than a shop. With larger pieces such as tables, chairs and lamps that are top quality and beautifully designed it means that items don’t always stay long, and new shipments change the feel of the shop on a regular basis.
If you’re shopping for smaller items, Deroy carries a range of items that make perfect gifts or an adornment to your home. Inspired by Bauhaus the work of Mogens Lassen is Danish functionalism, with a very modern, linear aesthetic, while the vases of Louise Campbell (above) have a softer, yet functional quality. The work of Ditte Fischer, known for her work in porcelain also adorns the shelves of the shop. And any questions you may have Deroy is more than happy to share his knowledge and love of Scandinavian design.
Nordik Market is located at 13 rue Charlot, in the 3rd arrondissement. It’s open Tuesday to Saturday noon – 7:30pm and Sunday 2-7pm.
