Among the many wonderful treasures housed within our favourite concept store, La Galeria Elefante, is this stunning Buddha Temple (2800€) hailing from Thailand.

This hand-painted wooden temple is one of a kind… and sure to be snapped up soon!
Paperweights, decorative ornaments, little objets d’art… no matter what you use these Ibiza-inspired cute glass domes – available from the beautiful La Galeria Elefante showroom located on the road to Santa Gertrudis – for, one thing is guaranteed – the jellyfish inside can’t sting you! That’s including the price, with the small darker jellyfish starting at 32€ and their larger, pastel-hued relatives coming in at just 40€.
A beautiful, striking addition to any Ibiza home, villa or rustic finca, this authentic Ayurvedic Spice Chest (1700€) from La Galeria Elefante is the perfect storage solution for those itsy bitsy kitchen pieces or simply a statement piece of decor!

The ever so lovely girls of La Galeria Elefante invite one and all to the grand unveiling of their unique Ibiza concept store this Easter Saturday. Nibbles and vino supplied by Ibiza Delivers – who not-so-coincidentally have their wares on sale inside – and it’s the perfect opportunity to be the first to see the latest collections, treasures sourced from exotic lands and see the new, improved store layout.
Freshly repainted, reshuffled, rejigged and most excitingly, restocked with amazing goodies from all corners of the globe, Ibiza concept store La Galeria Elefante reopens on Monday March 18, 2013, ready for the new season ahead. From the beautifully restored Puriwalla from India pictured above, perfect for a poolside towel and refreshement holder to lovely big elephant cushions, cute children’s toys and clothing, bags, fashion, woven baskets and many more unique treasures (see the photos below for a sneak peek), it truly is a haven where you will find something for everyone.
It’s no surprise you’ll find plenty of elephant-esque decor inside La Galeria Elefante, located on the Santa Gertrudis road (and easily spotted by the – you guessed it – pink elephant on the roof!), but choosing your favourite can be tricky. New for 2013 are these vibrant oversized elephant design cushions from India, perfect to throw on the floor in large spaces to create a chillout vibe, or to add a splash of colour to existing sofas and daybeds. Other patterns also available.
A true cornucopia of colour, style, creativity and worldly taste, Ibiza concept store La Galeria Elefante remains open daily from 10am until 2pm in the winter, with a truly dazzling array of new additions to its wonderfully curated collections. From ultra quirky decoration, like the handmade ‘Cheeky Goats’ sculptures shown above, to incredible handmade paper owls, hand-carved wooden statues, ceramic candelabras featuring beautiful bird details, plush colourful cushions, organic cadles and skincare, books, prints, ceramics and so much more. And did we mention there’s a wood fire burning all morning long to keep you cosy while you browse? What better excuse than to go shopping!
Join experienced pre and post natal recovery Ibiza yoga teacher Jacqueline Purnell for these beautiful classes to help get your body back to you and to keep baby calm too. Held at Yogashala, La Galeria Elefante, Santa Gertrudis.
