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.

Barcelona Insider – Parament Shop

If you follow us on Facebook or Pinterest you will know that we love ceramics and kitchenware. We came across Parament, whilst casually  browsing on instagram and when we found out they were based in Barcelona, we had to find out more. It turns out that the owner Carla Rauert is a fashion designer, turned pottery and food styling lover. Her husband is a cook, and in her own words ´we usually spend hours together reading and looking at gastronomy magazines. Whereas his eyes went always into food, mines focused on the plates. I decided that I had to do something about this, and this is how came out. A place where you can find unique, handcrafted, and essential goods to create beautiful tables´. Our kinda story! Find out more.

Where are you based?
 headquarter is based in l’Example Dret. A familiar, quiet and surprising neighborhood in the heart of Barcelona totally inspiring for its arquitecture and local life.

Where’s your favorite cafe?
I usually take a break at Granja PetitBó. There I find all I need for a pause: nice atmosphere and interior, good juices, coffee, magazines, friendly service..

What are your top tips for packing for a holiday?
If you mean top things I would take with me..? Then I would not forget my sketchbook, camera, iPad and my Brompton bike.

Best place to have a drink after work?
Any old ´Bodega´ is always a good place for an afterwork drink…Bodega Quimet at Gracia is one of them.

Where is the most inspiring place in Barcelona?
Probably La Boqueria food market

Favourite place for tapas?
No doubt about it…La Pubilla, at Gracia´s neighborhood. Best tapas, platillos and Catalan menu experience in town. There is no place more authentically local. They serve esmorzar de forquilla in the morning, local menu for lunch, and delicious food and drinks in the evening.

Favourite design store?
AOO, Altres Coses/ Otras cosas / Other Things, in Carrer Seneca.

Where is the best place to beach?
Menorca…It used to be paradise when I was a child. I try to go there when is not busy season and it is still unique. Beach, landscape, tradition, crafts and food..this is Menorca.

How did Parament come about?
Textiles, ceramics and food suddenly met in this personal / professional challenge.
