möbelkombinat berlin







i found möbelkombinat by chance, just riding my bike, on my way to mitte. it's basically located between mauerpark and arkona platz fleamarkets, however not open on market days (sundays). 

what struck me most were the big statement lights - some real beauties that would easily make a whole room. a bit like a perfect pair of shoes that instantly transforms some jeans and a t-shirt into something very special indeed. there were some lovely teak chairs and side tables, and a most dramatic, sculptural light installation in brass that somehow reminded me of the big wall ornament in the writer's living room in das leben der anderen (the live of others). the only downside: if you fall for something that's bigger than your average bike basket or cabin trolley, you'll have to arrange transport yourself, they don't deliver. but you know, if you really want that sofa - where there's a will...


+++ PLEASE NOTE: MÖBELKOMBINAT IS CLOSED. THE SHOP DOESN'T EXIST ANYMORE. +++

find it here: möbelkombinat, wolliner straße 18-19, 10435 berlin (prenzlauer berg/mitte), phone: +40 (0) 30 51051 1234, open mon-sat 9.00-21.00 h

You are tickling my shopping bug. What lovely furnishings. I also enjoy the photos. I'm a 2nd generation American with German roots and I know so little about Germany - especially the Germany of today.

Thanks for a little look into shopping in Berlin.
