Out with the old, in with the new! This concept store devoted to books and objects of beauty was launched by a publishing house as a place to try out fresh ideas on a trendsetting clientele.

Dedicated to books and beautiful objects

Naturally, Siebter Himmel chose the Belgian Quarter as the location for the experiment, with its rich array of trendy boutiques, little galleries, hip coffee houses and cafes. The trendsetters were already there, all they needed was a concept store that could mingle the world of ideas and beautiful objects to slake their thirst for the new.

Seven steps to seventh heaven

Seventh heaven (as the name of the shop translates) has been designed like a little maze, divided into seven worlds to explore. The foyer area at the entrance displays the latest tips in literature, design and home decor. The kiosk offers a selection of cutting-edge magazines, stationery, etc. and… a candy machine. The long wall of literary titles leads to the area devoted to detective novels, which interlocks with the children's zone, which connects the fashion/lifestyle corner and the mini art gallery. As you follow this winding trail, you can pick up books, gifts, home decor ideas, and DIY projects and get in touch with the zeitgeist. Seventh heaven isn't far at all.

Coralie, 31 JOURNALIST BY DAY

I'm a translator and editor for several publications and I love the hidden side of the city, its secret gardens, its discrete gourmet restaurants and its new, high-design spots. Outings with my friends end late at night. My little extra: a dynamic, fun and really trendy Cologne!
