Our Story

“Being a flâneur means to be away from home and yet to feel oneself everywhere at home.”

Charles Baudelaire, « Le Peintre de la vie moderne », 1863

Our Vision

Flâneur in French translates as ‘wanderer’. We feel we are part of a new generation of Flâneurs.
As travelers, we strive to find authentic locations, as consumers, we want to create meaningful
relationships with the things we buy. We want to put homeware back in the context of the
cultures and trends that shape the world we live in. Maison Flâneur is the destination of choice
for travelers and home enthusiasts looking for a unique and ever-evolving collection of
homeware products curated from the best hotels, restaurants and hospitality experiences
across the world with a view to curating a collection of uniquely timeless pieces. Our virtual
marketplace enables the shopper to view our retail space from anywhere in the world.

Our Collection

Maison Flâneur seeks out exquisite, design-centric hotels and restaurants, with which we
partner to curate beautifully designed homeware objects. Each suggesting a lifetime of travel,
it’s this that makes our collection unconventional and unique. Each object evokes its own soulful
and eclectic story; you may very well find a hand-woven Berber rug set beside a Barcelona
chair. Tableware, textiles, accessories, art pieces, and furniture – icons of our experiences –
delivered to your door. International, curious and enthusiastic, we are always in search of
unique interiors and in-depth stories that will tickle the fancy of our creative minds.
