The magical world of Marin Montagut
Marin has always collected objects with a soul whose poetry speaks to the imagination. During his travels in France, he met many antique dealers and passionate enthusiasts. After welcoming us into his house and his workshop, a poetic mix of colors and styles where all the objects in his collections tell a story, Marin takes us on a dive into the heart of the magical world of Extraordinary collections.
An invitation to rediscover our childhood memories
The journey begins in Perche, where we discover a collection of popular art and glassware from yesteryear. Then, a beautiful Provençal mansion opens up to us which houses ceramics and basketwork. On the banks of the Loir, we go back in time for an unusual visit to the museum of shops from another century. We explore the workshop of an art moulder and discover the strange beauty of artists’ mannequins from the past. We put ourselves in the shoes of a decorator who has come to look for a period seat for a film. We slip through the labyrinth of a writer with a thousand books and paintings, before embarking on a treasure hunt at the Saint-Ouen Flea Market. Extraordinary collections book is an invitation to rediscover our childhood memories to enhance our daily lives.
