La Voute, French for "The Vault", certainly lives up to its name.

While the showroom for this vintage furniture and homewares shop may be a little off the beaten path, it only makes the underground space feel even more transportive. Upon walking through the warehouse doors you'll be greeted with a variety of beautifully styled vignettes. The shop boasts extraordinary finds that range from vintage sofas and cabinetry to lighting and coffee table accessories.  Vintage art is also plentiful throughout the space, giving you one-of-a-kind choices to adorn your walls. 

La Voute caters to a variety of budgets, so whether you're looking for a true investment piece or hoping to inexpensively style your living room bookshelves, you'll be able to find just the item in this generously sized showroom. Owner Liam takes great pride in constantly restocking the shop with finds foraged from all over the country, and chances are, if you see the same piece twice, you'll find it reimagined in a totally different vignette. 

In addition to their regular shopping hours, La Voute also hosts frequent markets with other vintage vendors - the perfect opportunity to scour the shelves for the next addition to your home (or even your closet!). Make sure to follow them on social media to stay up to date on the latest markets, and even some sneak peeks at new finds coming to the store.
