Ewa Bińkiewicz, one of the hosts at Collage, asks us if she can wear, during the photo session, a dressing gown which is hanging on a wall. When she comes out of the fitting room in black high heels and this outfit resembling an elegant evening dress everything falls into place. We feel like at the women boudoir party.
The interior is bright, subdued, furnished with taste and buttoned up. Everything here fits: furniture, plants, cosmetics, brass cans and marble trays, jewellery, dressing gowns and a bouquet of white gladiolas standing on the table.
Minimalist style and natural fabrics are the trademark of the owners – the architects Ewelina Moszczyńska and Marta Puchalska-Kraciuk who have their Moszczyńska Puchalska architecture design studio just behind the wall. They specialize mainly in home and commercial place interior design. When they lacked interior elements – mirrors, poufs, decorative accessories – they started designing and producing them on their own. On a small scale, in cooperation with craftsmen. Now these elements can be bought at Collage. They added also some carefully selected Danish design.
Marta and Ewelina have been working together for 10 years. Now, Ewa has joined the team. She has been friends with Ewelina since secondary school. She is a biologist by profession and deals with cosmetics. She can talk about them for hours. And what is more important – she knows which are the best. Only two brands passed the test and are sold at Collage: Kahina i Qoqui qoqui. These cosmetics are made of fine ingredients and have fair trade certificate.
Thus, girls if you want to pamper yourself a bit during this autumn you know what to do. Boys if you are looking for a present for your beloved you know the address.
