15. "Šiaulių baldai" shopTag
Located in the middle of the southern residential districts of Šiauliai, this furniture store is not immediately noticeable to the everyday passer-by. The uniqueness of the building that stands in the monotony of multi-storey buildings emerges only upon closer inspection – the unique aesthetics of the triangular-shaped pillar on the outside, and the expressive, spacious metal constructions on the inside immediately draw the eye away from the furniture display. The combination of contrasting materials – red brick, light grey plaster, metal and glass elements – that prevail in the furniture store highlights the architectural uniqueness of the building, while the interior details, finished in bright orange, unite the spaces to form a seamless image of the „Šiaulių baldai“ brand.
Built in 1982, the furniture store is an example of late modernist architecture. Designed in 1978 by Kajetonas Jurėnas, one of the architects who left the most abundant and original architectural trace in Šiauliai during the Soviet era, it has become yet another building that shaped the face of the growing city.
Over the 40 years of its existence, the building has preserved not only its unique artistic and structural features or the old logos of Lithuanian furniture companies still hanging on the walls but also the functional purpose of the building. The authentic stories of the employees who have been working there since its inception will animate the furniture store’s spaces and give its fragments a new lease on life.Back
