Menage a Trois Amsterdam | Nieuwmarkt Area

Menage A trois is a new fashion initiative in Amsterdam by AnneMarie Kramer, Bridgitte Kleyn and Vanessa Tersteeg and can be found within the Droog Design building, one of Amsterdam's finest stores to discover Dutch design and grab a coffee or glass of wine in the Droog cafe, or if the weather is nice wander through the Rossana Orlandi-esque garden. When visiting Droog the other day my eye caught the huge black Limited edition ceramic tulip vase by Eduard Hermans at the all new Menage A Trois store in the back of the ground floor.

At Menage a Trois you will not only find fashion brands like Rick Owens, Maison Margiela and Y/Project but also a handpicked collection of art and beauty objects. I was immediately sold by both the collection and the atmosphere in the store, and also really happy to see my favourite French brand Mad et Len represented at the store. The furniture consisting of sculpture like objects is designed in collaboration with product designer GuidoToonen.

LOFT Amsterdam | Eastern Docklands area (CLOSED)


LOFT Amsterdam recently opened their doors in one of the industrial buildings at KNSM laan on the KNSM island, another great addition to the few selected stores in the same street like Sissy Boy Homeland, Pols Potten and children department store Keet aan Huis. The Eastern Docklands is a great not to crowded residential area. As the formal harbour of Amsterdam, the North America line is still departing from here and many huge cruise ships can be seen from time to time. The many old industrial buildings and warehouses are perfectly blending with modern architecture on the different peninsulas and make the area to what it is.

LOFT Amsterdam offers a great selection of Scandinavian design and home accessories, Dutch design and fair trade home and fashion brands. In the basement larger interior items are placed in a home-like setting. More pictures can be found at my Interior design blog Vosgesparis
