Vinçon is a huge design shop in Barcelona. It's housed in what looks like an art deco building on one of the main shopping streets. What's really clever about it, is that the furniture is displayed in rooms with all the original tiled & parquet flooring, wooden shutters and pannelling. You wander between rooms in such a way that it's almost like being in someone's (albeit very stylish) flat. Then there's the roof terrace, where you look out to the back of Gaudi's Casa Milà.
Spot the posing bird in the last image. I kept moving closer & closer to take a photo. He didn't fly off until I was practically touching him. I guess even the wildlife are laid back in Barcelona.
