Modernista. Signature Barcelona. Absolutely gorgeous. And noble too. My friend Benedicte is a Hollywood wardrobe stylist turned urban archeologist. Now she hunts and rescues antique floor tiles from construction site dumpsters, puts them through a museum-style restoration, then art directs them into really amazing tables. Or simple wall memories. And all kinds of other things. Way too pretty to leave behind. www.mesabonita.es And, check this out, the store Sadur in Sarriá makes elegant wallets, purses and shoes out of leather embossed with Barcelona’s modernista sidewalk tile designs. You walked on it, now you can wear it!
