Decorative objects can easily be overlooked in interiors stores among larger, more eye-catching pieces of furniture and homeware, but the opposite is true at the recently opened Objeto de Deseo in Barcelona’s Carrer de Balmes.
Describing itself as ‘the cabinet of curiosities of the 21st century’, the small but perfectly put together gallery and shop aims to showcase the finest decorative objects and the craftsmanship behind them.
Providing space for up-and-coming artists alongside well-known designers, Objeto de Deseo sources pieces from around the world, mixing contemporary designs with striking antique finds.
Owner Jorge Subietas selects only handmade items made in clay, porcelain, glass, wood and metal, resulting in a collection that’s eclectic and certain to wow interiors fans.
