Name of establishment
Perfect Living, Lagoa
Quite unassuming from the outside, you enter into a modern and sophisticated large interior that is styled with soft furnishings, furniture, lighting, art, mirrors, beds, bed linen, vases, candle holders, sofas and armchairs, all sourced from Holland.
A busy shop with a relaxed atmosphere, and friendly staff who really do make you feel at home. While you browse, you are encouraged to take photos of items that you are thinking of finding a space for in your home, and Monique the store manager knows the products inside out and is on hand to assist speaking Dutch, English and Portuguese.
What to buy
Specialities? Well, everything! If you are looking for a much talked-about item, come for the sofas and arm chairs and the extra-ordinary lighting, but for the ‘where did you get that from?’ check out the cool single items like the espresso cup that sits in a cappuccino cup, each with a teaspoon that goes through the handles.
Why do you like it?
There are areas that are set up like a living room. The office is incorporated seamlessly into the store and there is a lovely natural flow through the building to the different areas.
The staff attend trade fairs in Holland, and while the items are from different suppliers, they all seem to suit each other and work well together to create a unique style. Popular Dutch designers within the store are Kartell (lamps, sofas and silver items) and Van Dyck (bed linen).
Perfect Living carries this style through to its interior design projects, having completed work on the interiors of restaurants, private villas and apartments in various locations in the Algarve.
When to go
Whether you are decorating an entire room or looking for individual items to complement your home, you are sure to find something original. Or go if you’re after a house-warming gift or a little treat for yourself.
Sofas or headboards on display can be made in a different colour on request. Colour swatches are available in the store, and ordering takes 6-8 weeks. Delivery is available across the whole Algarve and the service also includes at-home assembly, for no additional charge.
Zona Industrial do Carmo, Lote 10-12, Lagoa.
