Filled with vintage furniture and antique objects, the 5,400 square feet flagship now function as an overflow for their three-story gallery, located at the entrance to the Marché Dauphine. 20 years ago, when they discovered the store, it was in an advanced state of decrepitude. Nowadays, it presents a classic Parisian mansion decor, with Versailles parquet flooring, marble fireplaces, and elaborate wood paneling.

The passion for furniture design passes from generation to generation, as the sisters’ attraction of traditional savoir-faire comes from their grandparent, a fine carpenter, who restored antique pieces and created cabinets of his own. In the early ’60s, he opened a stand and later was joined by his son, Serge, who sold out of the annex to his home and had his own boutique at the heart of the flea’s Marché Vernaison.

The world of our childhood was quite magica. The strongest memories are of our grandfather’s workshop, with the smell of varnish and wax.”

The flea market was completely different back then. It was much more ramshackle. The stalls were open to the elements, and there was no heating. In the winter, our feet would freeze.

Both of the founders of Galerie Glustin always wished and worked to work in this area. Each one of them had set up shop at Les Puces, in the early 20s, joining forces with their father two decades ago to open their current gallery. In the beginning, the space specialized in antiques of the 18th and 19th centuries, and some years ago, they turned their attention to the decorative arts of the 20th century.

Minimalism is not a characteristic of Galerie Glustin. Their passion for decorative arts has been running in the family, passing to the next generation. Actually, Kaine’s son Ilan works in the gallery, and one of Virgine’s children has opened his own boutique at Les Puces, focusing on lighting. Their father retired six months ago, but he’s still very much present at Galerie Glustin.

Our style is not to have just one piece in the middle of a room, you never know wat you’re going to find.
