Remember that store you wandered into by chance in Palma years ago; the one that still sparks your imagination when you recall its dreamy interior? That was Rialto Living. For some reason you left in a state of happiness, uplifted by the objects of beauty you discovered there and the sheer gorgeousness of the building, before skipping off for an ice cream in the heat of that summer’s day.
Would it be an overstatement to say that this is the best concept store in Europe? This is the view taken by Rialto Living devotees, but you won’t hear these words from the owners, who simply continue doing what they do without show or ostentation: that is, creating a space of inspiration, desire, and good taste on Mallorca.‘We wanted to do something fantastic”, say the Swedish founders; “To give people the kind of products they would still be using 30 years later.”
Even the most sophisticated traveller needs something to aspire to, and the fantasy of the rich Mediterranean lifestyle is gracefully conceptualised within the honey-stone walls of this Baroque-style palacio. Amongst the verdant plants and flowers lie a treasure trove of gifts, fashion collections, art exhibitions and stunning interior displays, demonstrating the designers’ eye for design.
It is, quite simply, a location with a unique wow factor; the loveliness of this Balearic island exemplified in every ambiently lit corner. Perhaps it is the whisper of a past life as a cinema which gives its special atmosphere, or the pleasant clink of cappuccino cups as people take a rest in the Rialto Café.
What is absolutely certain is that a visit to Palma without at least a peek at this city landmark is like a fine Mediterranean meal without wine. Class is what lifts it from being just another store to a pleasurable experience that takes hold of your senses, and locks into your memory.
