Celebrating its 20th year in business, Batavia, the Spanish furniture store dedicated to furnishing a modern and eclectic view of decor, is opening its new flagship store in the Palacio de Santa Bárbara in Madrid.

The Madrid-based company has been sourcing and creating a unique selection of designs coming from countries all around the world, based not only on their beauty, but also on their functionality and durability.

Gathering in its two shops a selection of both high-quality and vintage furniture, the Batavia team not only designs their own collections, but also reworks antique pieces to suit current trends.

The company also works on interior design and architectural projects, counsels clients on decor and buys furniture for them, facilitating the process of decorating a new space.

The newly opened flagship store, was designed by the affiliated architectural firm Àbaton in the 400 sq m former stables of a mid-19th-century mansion, which have been transformed into a serene modern space.

Original mosaic floors and exposed solid stone support columns are a few of the elements that the firm decided to keep from the former tenancy, a hardware store, which had existed inside the space since 1906.

The architects also decided to repurpose the hardware store’s original shelving, perfect for the inclusion of a thoughtfully curated design gift section, which is illuminated by a sophisticated but discreet lighting system, and adds to the flagship’s eclectic mix of contemporary and vintage furniture.
