We tapped a few of our most frequent Paris-visiting licensors to compile a guide of the best shops to hit during your Maison&Objet trip.
- Cédric Grolet Patisserie Opéra for pastries that are almost too beautiful to eat.
- Wander around Quartier Saint Germain and also Avenue Montaigne for luxury shop and drinks at George V bar.
- Dammann Frères at the Place des Vosges location for the best tea.
- Le Bon Marche in the 7th has the best curation of fashion, accessories, and homewares — but especially don’t miss the food hall. Absolute gastronomic heaven!
- Must visit boutiques: Ines de la Fressange’s, Astier de Villate, Faiencerie de Gien, Alix D. Reynis.
- Marin Montagut’s eclectic store; he has a fabulous new book out called Extraordinary Collection.
- La Samaritaine on the border of the 1st and 3rd is worth a visit for the beautifully restored architecture rather than the things it sells.
- A La Mere de Famille to buy chic chocolate treats to take home at (shops in various locations).
- La Tuile; a Loup for china and pottery.
- Officine Universelle Buly for candles and body creams.
- Astier de Villatte for candles, objet and ceramics.
- Simrane on Rue du Bonaparte for home decor.
- Merci; and Independent concept boutique in Le Marias created by the founders of Bonpoint. The store has a curated collection of fashion, design and antique pieces spread out over three floors.
- Porte de Clignancourt Antique Market (also known as Marché aux Puces de Saint-Ouen), is one of the biggest antique markets in the world, set over seven acres on the outside of Paris. I recommend going with a tape measure and a few key pieces in mind.
