  •  Merci Store

Merci, is Paris’s latest concept shopping sensation, and all interior designers’ favourite temple of joy!!! It is housed in an elaborately reconfigured 19th-century fabric factory in three loft-like floors heave with furniture, jewellery, stationery, fashion, household products, and all curious items that the most picky of the clients may look for. Do take the time to go around the store and look carefully to all the different collections because with no doubt you will find several design treasures! I personally love their bedroom collection made out of exeptional linen or cotton! While purchasing for my clients’ homes, I have also found some great items for the kitchen and beautiful lamps in the basement.

If you have the chance to go back several times throughout the year you will view beautiful installations made out of design products thanks to collaborations of the store with artists and designers.

This heavenly place actually has a philanthropic vocation. Several famous designers from different fields have joined the team to propose their creations.Annick Goutal and her fountain of scents, Stella Mc Cartney and Yves St Laurent… You can get as much as 30% off these famous names and leave the store feeling good AND doing good…

If hungry do not hesitate to try having brunch in the literary caffé with its impressive books collection and sophisticated decoration!

  • Maison et Objet

From the 21st to the 25th of january and from the 9th to the 13th of September takes place the fair for interior designers and decorators in Paris, and this is the reason for which I visit the city with my clients during this time of the year. It is a great way to keep up with the fashion for home, learn about new talent and companies of interior design and decoration and see their products, objects and materials.From fabrics to decorative objects and from furniture to the best suppliers for your interiors this is the right place to visit with an experienced designer and spend more than one day catching up with the latest trends. I am honored to be connected to the leaders of this trade show as far as it regards the interior design and  willing to make you part of this incredible experience.Since many years now I have been sourcing and shopping on behalf of my clients and several of the products of companies I got to see during this fair, were used for my interior design projects.Clients always mention the shopping experience in Maison et Objet as one of the best in their lives and I am so glad to see them coming back year after year.Do not hesitate to contact me to receive further information about the different services and fees and ofcourse the scedule.I usually advice clients to get informed in advance given the limited places and the high request of this service.

  •  Géraldine Georges

An artist that I personally collect is Géraldine Georges!

After graduating from the Academy of Fine Arts in Brussels Géraldine worked as a graphic designer in various advertising agencies for 7 years. Towards the end of 2006, She started to work as a freelance illustrator. She did not felt like she was leaving behind the graphic design world but rather she was able to see & bring some graphic design elements into her illustrations. The two are inevitably linked for her.

Her approach is pretty simple, she tries her best to transcribe emotions, find a perfect balance through the collages without falling into the trap of over-using Photoshop or other effects… Géraldine Georges is represented by Colagene, illustration clinic. (www.colagene.com)
