The few that have been to the region of Posta Fibreno in Italy might understand how inspiring the place can be. For the rest of us, we just might have to visit this little stationery boutique in Wonseo-dong to get the feeling. Available for purchase here are a variety of faux-leather goods to go with the store’s motto of “color your desk.” Iphone pouches, pencil cases, tissue boxes and other deskware pop out at you with a splash of color.
For those who already have too much stationery lying around, this is a dangerously temping place. You’ll find the whales and dolphins skillfully drawn on various postcards calling your name and if you can manage to resist them, there are also equally tempting necklaces, notebooks and wooden knickknacks seducing your wallet. Allow yourself to purchase something, but resolve to use what you buy as well!
Light pours into this “sunny place” which sells mostly accessories. The store focuses on handcrafted bracelets, rings and necklaces of gold and silver. Designs here are unique and feel one step up from cutesy street buys. However, the collection includes a wide range of things you can buy—from wooden spoons to stationery to silverware, it’s the kind of place to find a gift for a newlywed. Word has it that their gift wrapping services are equal to their products so buy something budget and have it packaged well because sometimes it’s all about the presentation!
Antique ornaments and dried flowers decorate Maison de Ines’ small house and store that stands at one intersection of Wonseo-dong. Detailing around the neck seems to be a motif common for the spring, summer collection of 2015. Remember Jean Seberg from the Godard film Breathless? Her iconic look? One dress that embodies the modern femininity of the store is a tempting knee-length nude pink dress with lacy sleeves. Come here for stylish yet casual office-appropriate button down shirts.
