Paris: new addresses for design
Parisian boutiques and design and decor workshops offer the best in contemporary creation.
Paris is a landmark destination for lovers of contemporary design. French designers (the Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec brothers, Patrick Jouin, and Christophe Pillet) attract clients from home and abroad.
In the district, the mini workshop-boutique of the two designers Les Sismo (Antoine Fenoglio and Frédéric Lecourt) showcases their objects.
The Marais, a hot spot for design, is home to numerous design showrooms like Byzance Home, devoted to the home, with its exclusive lines in Scandinavian design. At Lieu Commun, the creations of Matali Crasset share a space with the collections of men’s fashion by Ron Orb.
At Fleux et Pylones, you can treat yourself to practical design objects at reasonable prices. The latest trends can also be found in concept stores like Les Eclairagistes for lights, or The House Factory and Serendipity, which sells furniture and objects.
Paintings, sculptures, photos: how to buy quality reproductions without spending a fortune.
Shopping for art is a confirmed trend in Paris. Arteum, a concept store for art, presents paintings, photos and sculptures of contemporary artists and reproductions of famous works in three shops in Paris - at the Carrousel du Louvre, at Bercy Village and at La Défense.
You’ll find fine books on art, chairs inspired by Mondrian, the Nanas by Niki de Saint Phalle with their rounded buttocks, and umbrellas with Magritte motifs.
The gallery Wanted offers art photography at affordable prices from series of 150 copies. YellowKorner continues its expansion in the capital and offers fine prints at low prices in its seven Parisian galleries.
