[In Memoriam. Regrettably, Frans Bøhm has passed away in 2015 and this shop is no longer there] Hidden in the Slotmakersstraat, you can find three second hand shops that sell retro furniture from the fifties, sixties and seventies. Bøhm Design is the first shop you come across when you enter the street from the street Eewal. The store was the first of its kind to open its doors in this street about ten years ago. When you enter the shop you will probably first be welcomed by cat Pooh. ‘Because a shop like this needs a cat’ according to owner Frans Bøhm. After you give Pooh the attention she needs, you can look around in the shop at the original second hand furniture and accessories.
Frans Bøhm has a heart for the furniture he sells. He started out by cycling around on his bakfiets (carrier cycle) and collecting old furniture which he gave a second life. Nowadays, he has found better ways to collect second hand furniture. But he still repairs them and the most important thing to him is that his furniture finds the right owner. That’s why his prices can be quite friendly. If you can’t find what you were looking for here, neighbouring 39 Design and Tolve Design have lots of beautiful retro furniture for sale as well.
