Whether you’re sprucing up a beachfront estate in Cabo or adding authentic touches to your L.A. apartment, a visit to Mexico City isn’t complete without stopping in to these five design stores.
For Chic Lighting
This Roma Norte shop showcases beautiful, contemporary lighting using unique objects and chic designs. Founder David Pompa’s intrigue was sparked by Mexican materials he found in Oaxaca leading to the studio’s first collection, a showcase of black clay. Since then, his studio’s work focuses on Mexican culture and materials, creating innovative yet timeless pieces.
For Vintage Finds
Vintage, mid-century finds abound at this Mexico City staple. Founded in 1999, Trouvé continues to be the go-to for those seeking out vintage treasures. Shoppers can browse refurbished pieces with modernist designs from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. Featured designers help from Mexico and international destinations and include well-known names like Arturo Pani, Eugenio Escudero, Octavio Vidales, Clara Porset and Frank Kyle and more.
This Polanco design concept store is a must-visit for a little bit of everything. From furniture and lighting to accessories, books, art and more, Blend is a one-stop shop for home decor. Showrooms are decked out with pieces from established designers as well as up-and-coming artists. Find works from national and international designers. Bonus: Enrique Olvera’s Café Eno has an on-site location here so you can sip while you browse.
