Atelier Charivari - Vintage Kid's Furniture from France

Atelier Charivari is a blog and a shop in Rouen, France. The owner Soizic Menut brings back life to old furnitures. When you see these furniture you can tell he has a good eye on what is worth restoring. The thing is to see the quality in the old pieces. This doesn't mean surface scratches or even small dents or missing hardware - that is not a problem. Most of the time, it's the dents and scratches that add charm but if charm isn't what you are looking for, you can sand the item down and paint it to look new. What you have to look for, above everything else, is first do you like it (of course) but next, it needs to have good bones it must be sturdy and made well. Metal lockers, metal tables with exposed rivets, wood tables with metal tops, metal bookcases with wood shelves, these are all quite the rage currently, have you noticed? Atelier Charivari -if you are interested in ordering from them and live in mainland Europe, you may contact them if you see something that you are interested in purchasing.
