Paraphernalia is an independent design and lifestyle store created in November 2014 in Athens, Greece, by George Karras and Angela Koutroulaki. The owners are curating a constantly changing collection of furniture, lighting, jewellery, accessories, editions, plants, home and office ware and everything in between. Some are new some are old or upcycled.
All articles are chosen based on their functionality, process and quality of production as well as nature and sourcing of their material. Special attention is payed to recycled and upcycled materials and to craftsmanship from Greece and all around the world!
Paraphernalia aspire to create a holistic proposal in a minimal/organic space where everyone can find imaginative and well-designed objects most of which are presented in central Athens for the first time!
Take it from someone who recently had to furnish an entire apartment: this place will clear out your wallet, but your apartment will look very stylish as a result. It has everything you didn’t know you need until you see it—from geometric plant hangers and marble trays to 3D paper animal heads and crocodile candle holders. Founders George Karras and Angela Koutroulaki have laid this well-lit space out in a minimal yet homey way, so you’re bound to want to spend as much time as possible checking out every candle and plate.
