Good by name and good by nature! This cosy design space in the heart of Marseille is a concept store that combines the avant-garde with a friendly welcome, a space reflecting Scandinavian lifestyle at its best, and more besides.
Good is the brainchild of Katja and Benjamin Bonneville, two fans of home decoration and design who wanted to share their lifestyle concept with as wide a public as possible. Benjamin is a creative director, while Katja represents Scandinavian design brands – such as Muuto, Ferm Living, String and Northern Lighting – on the French market.
The new 350m² store in Rue Venture stocks a very personal selection of products in natural and innovative materials, with fun objects, sleek design and simple lines, elegant accessories and timelessly functional contemporary furniture. The idea is to blend affordable items with design icons and avant-garde offerings. Alongside Scandinavian creations you'll find Italian furniture brands Artflex and Diesel With Moroso, Basque label Treku, tiles by Tagina, rugs by Gan, Playtype posters, Tom Dixon accessories and, from Belgium, Ethnicraft, Universo Positivo, Serax and Mr Marius. Good has even put together a kids' corner, a cheerful, chic, harmonious place with fantastic giant colouring rolls by OMY design, soft furnishings from Ferm Living and breathtaking illustrations by Michelle Carlslund. Good also offers personalised advice and home design project planning. Katja and Benjamin welcome customers like guests, and the store includes a lounge bar for the purpose!
