Barcelona Blog

It can all be a little overwhelming, the city may not be huge but the culture, activities, events, eateries etc. is vast. So we have taken it upon ourselves to amalgamate our local 12 years experience in the city via our blog. Whether you are planning on coming over for the festivals, want to find out vegan eats or general insider information, we will keep you in the loop.

Objeto de Deseo Barcelona


Objeto de Deseo – a design treasure trove


Objeto de Deseo
Carrer Balmes 237
08006 Barcelona 

Jorge Subietas is behind the niche design store Objeto de Deseo, who has carefully curated all pieces in the gallery. If there is a reason to make your way up just off Via Augusta, this is it. Beautiful objects stand out from the moment you enter the petite store, with the pops of colours from some of the decorative pieces instantly seducing the design savvy. Contemporary and vintage pieces can be found here and vary from materials such as glass, wood, metal and other materials.

There is a nice eclectic mix of designer pieces and those from local artisans, giving a nice variation of funky and interesting items. The objects come from more than 30 countries on five continents and Objeto de Deseo has virtually all parts exclusively. Take for example the luxurious necklace with feather and seashells on a stand, Murano glass or the red Big Blowing Baby. These range from limited edition lines which are exclusive to Barcelona, and often not found anywhere else in Spain.
