Voilà! Artisanal Marché, is more than just another home décor shop. Voilà! is an enchanting unique respite off the main drag of expected downtown shops. Whether you seek out or serendipitously happen upon this delightfully eclectic lavender-scented French country shop located in a quaint enclave off Park Street in Andover, Massachusetts, you will not be disappointed.
At Voilà! Artisanal Marché you will find the unexpected and uncommon…whether it be a richly polished hand-painted piece of vintage furniture to enliven your home décor, an original exquisite passionately expressed array of color on canvas to create drama on an otherwise dull wall or an unusual gift to delight a friend, such as our exclusive lavender-filled artisanal wool hooked bird sachets. Whatever the adventure brings, your day will be enriched by the sights, scents and pleasant company in this hidden gem of a shop.
Voilà! has evolved from an idea to a passion for Michele and Timothy Bourgeau Lea, owners, artisans and proprietors of the shop. Inspired by the many marchés of the Luberon Valley in Provence, this decorators market offers one of a kind restored and hand painted furniture and home décor created by local artisans as well as vintage and antique accessories for the beautiful home. If you are looking to achieve elegance of style, simplicity of design, fine craft, rich colors, and the lust for life we all long to experience, Voilà! is an experience you will not want to miss.
Voilà! is a place where others who recognize the value of living life with cheerful pleasure, or joie de vivre, can find like company. Voilà! is about taking a second look at artistry and function in the simple and useful things in our lives. We value what has already been created and those craftspeople of the past who took into consideration quality, function and flair when they originally crafted a chair, a table, a bookshelf or a piece of pottery. At Voilà! we recycle, restore, renew and refresh with green products and our own hands to enhance the value and give new life to a tired or neglected functional piece. We want to be part of a world that attempts to slow down the pace of consumption and live life with meaning as well as beauty.
Recycling useful furniture and objects, combining the expected with the unexpected, celebrating color and design, as well as highlighting the amazingly gifted craftspeople around us is important to Voilà! We hope you will choose to seek us out. We promise you will find beauty, color, quality art and one-of-a-kind handcrafted items that will be unlike anything you ever expected. Giving us a five star rating on facebook, one of our satisfied customers wrote, “Gorgeous hand-painted furniture plus fun odds & ends. Excellent prices and great customer service!”
Market days are Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 11a.m. to 5 p.m. at Voilà! Artisanal Marché.
