MaiParacas is a shop in Gràcia that transforms found furniture in the most charming of ways. A few weeks ago I walked past it with my daughter – and we both stopped in our tracks, totally beguiled by the prettiest toy kitchen we had even seen.
She either finds them in the street, or sometimes neighbours donate them, knowing that Laia will make it into a little girl’s - or boy’s - dream kitchen using delightful details such as minuscule sinks, kettles and stovetops. In vivid colors and 1950s textiles, they look like a kitchen Betty Crocker’s daughter would hang out in.
