Between the Parc des Bastions (check Parc des Bastions article) and the Plaine de Plainpalais (check Art sans RDV and Marché de Plainpalais articles), Le Panapé de Caméla proposes an eclectic choice of trendy, surprising and colourful items. Its dishes, accessories or decoration objects always give a cosy and smart touch to the interior.
For me, humour best describes the atmosphere of the assortment. By the way the shop’s name illustrates this mood of playing on words and styles. Le Panapé de Caméla is a spoonerism of le canapé de Paméla (translation: Paméla’s cough).
The owners pay close attention to regularly refreshing their collection. Their selected pieces are from small producers or made by artisans.
My last purchase was a funny wooden corkscrew, which becomes a candleholder, when sunk in the cork of a bottle. I like the idea, that one item has more than one use.
Le Panapé de Caméla’s selection perfectly balances aestheticism, creativity and freshness.
