The 5 best home decoration shops

1) Caravane

Any Parisian woman with a penchant for home decoration knows these two shops. They pay great attention to the quality of the fabrics, the prints and the colours. Their selection of bed linens, curtains and crockery is subtle, refined and eclectic as they are inspired by India, Morocco and Asia.

The international selection – combining contemporary designs, unique and vintage pieces – always has a surprise in store for you.

4) Empreintes

This lovely concept store, which is dedicated to arts and crafts, sells one-offs or items that are handmade in small quantities in the workshops of French designers. Tableware, decoration, design, jewellery, light fittings… Take a stroll through the shop before stopping in at the pretty (and gluten-free) cafe on the first floor.

5) La Trésorerie

La Trésorerie is very similar to the old emporiums where you could buy anything you needed for a ‘well-kept’ house. Under the glass roof you can find pretty, useful and environmentallyfriendly items including a nice selection of homewares, industrial stools, table linens as well as organic paint and cleaning products.
