AOO
8 Carrer de Sèneca, Gracia
This hole-in-the-wall garage located steps away from the Passei de Gracia is a real find, housing designers Marc Morro and Oriol Villar's wooden furniture along with their favorite vernacular design, from traditional earthenware dishes made by local craftsmen, to HAY desk accessories. If you don't fall for one of their perfectly Mediterranean-feeling wooden beach chairs, or their re-release of Catalan designer Miguel Milá's rattan chairs, you'll at least leave inspired and with a small trinket or two.
Beatriz Furest
Paseo de Gracia, 55-57, Dreta de l'Eixample
Even before she set out designing her namesake accessories line, Beatriz picked up on the importance of quality and longevity at a young age—her family has been in the apparel business since 1898. The Italian-leather totes, clutches, loafers, and flats on display at her teeny boutique all transcend seasonal trends and only look better the longer you wear them. There are also locations in Les Corts, El Born, and Sarrià-Sant Gervasi.

Chandal
29 Calle Valldonzella, El Born
This color-happy shop is a paradise for anyone born before 1982 or old souls with an interest in records, polaroid cameras, and quirky home décor. While the kitschy stuff is clearly the draw, the offering of contemporary, design-centric brands like Fern Living, Papier Tigre, and HAY shouldn’t be missed. Also worth exploring is the excellent children’s section, stocked with everything from delightfully analog wooden toys to sweet retro-inspired enamel plates. Leave plenty of time to browse the wall of indie publications: All the usual suspects are here (Kinfolk, Toiletpaper, Cerial) plus more obscure titles like Kink and Victory.
Iriarte Iriarte
Calle Cotoners, 12, Gothic Quarter
If you’re looking to invest in one great made-in-Barcelona item to bring home, one of Carolina Iriarte's handcrafted leather bags should be it. The two beautiful shops (each one looks more like an apartment than retail space) also serve as Iriarte’s workshops, so you can witness the slightly masculine, vintage-inspired satchels, elevated fanny packs, clutches, and briefcases come to life on the spot. The second outpost is on Plaza Real.

La Comercial
73 Carrer del Rec, El Born
Though it's broken up into six distinct boutiques (two men’s, two women’s, plus a concept shop and a home décor store), La Comercial as a whole takes up a significant stretch of El Born’s best shopping street. With a designer roster that includes Carven, Comme des Garçons, Fornasetti, and Kenzo to name a select few, it’s easy to compare it to say, a Barneys, but the clever use of space and merchandising make a shopping experience here feel entirely new.
