Started by a group of prominent Catalan architects, this gorgeous gallery-shop offers the best contemporary pieces alongside reproductions of work by the likes of Gaudí, Dalí, and Mackintosh. Artwork by Oscar Tusquets, one of the shop's founders and a leading Catalan designer, is also a good investment. Goodies range from furniture, fittings, and rugs to easily packed items such as kitchenware and decorative objects. Sleek and serious, BD is Barcelona's bastion of design culture.
