“Come by on Saturdays if you want to see all the new stuff coming in,” says Natascha Dufour, “or on Tuesdays if you prefer to browse and have a quiet chat.”
Natascha Dufour opened Vintage Kafferiet (roughly translated as the The Vintage Coffe Shop) in January, 2010 and the shop was an instant success with residents and business people in the neighbourhood.
Black is a Great Colour for Vintage Furniture
“I source most of my furniture from auctions in Sweden,” says Natascha Dufour.
“Then I paint and upholster it myself. The fashionable colour at the moment is black, which luckily looks amazing with the vintage furniture.”
She changes the interior every week, and consciously creates a homely atmosphere with candles an her favourite French chansons.
The furniture shifts quite quickly, and recently a sofa was carried out the door, while there were still guests sitting on it enjoying their coffee. Luckily the guests take this as part of the atmosphere. They just laugh and find somewhere else to sit.
Home-baked Cakes and Drinks with a Conscience
“The cakes are home-baked, says Natascha Dufour, “and I really take pride in serving good coffee.”
She also takes pride in serving other good products: The tea is from Sri Lanka, made by a company which gives back to the local community, and the cold pressed apple juices are from a small farm in southern Denmark.
Vintage Kafferiet is inspired by similar small shops in New York, and hopefully it will inspire you to a visit.
