Elisa Gassert furniture store in Eaux-Vives is a living fairytale for children and adults alike. Opened in 1977, it is a one-stop shop for Swiss-made, hand-painted canopy beds, dressers, wardrobes, chairs, doll houses, lamps, and even music boxes. Client requests are immediately addressed in the in-house atelier, where with a few of Gassert’s brush strokes a child’s dream acquires its new meaning. Light pink, blue, and green ecologically sound paints are harmoniously integrated with the fabrics by Jane Churchill and Designer’s Club. Ballerinas or cars, all are products of clients’ imagination and Elisa Gassert’s ability to translate them into reality.
The quality of her personalised service is uncontested, which explains why roughly 80 percent of parents return for full or partial room remodelling. She keeps the childhood dreams alive.
