It’s great to admire the art at the Louvre, but what if you want to take some with you? No, we are not suggesting an art heist. Simply follow some of your Time & Place Concierge Team’s art and luxury design shopping recommendations.
Hit the pavements in search of that cherished find or an amazing bargain. March aux Puces de Clignancourt flea market (Ave de la Porte de Clignancourt, 18th) is reportedly designer legend Jean Paul Gaultiers favorite bargain hunting-spot, so look out for him! I tend to gravitate toward the Paul-Bert section of the market to browse the high-end antiques and home furnishings. If you fall in love with something, I will gladly look into how to ship it home for you.
Art lovers will definitely want to take the time to browse March de la Cration Paris Bastille. This creative art market takes place on boulevard Richard Lenoir, open every Saturday of the year from 10am to 7pm. Youll get to meet the painters, sculptors and designers who enjoy nothing more than to welcome you, and promote their work. Youre bound to find that one gem youve been looking for here.
The antique lover wont have to go far for some of the best antique shopping on the planet; besides all the trendy stores in Le Marais district, the variety of antiques to be found here is swoon-worthy. Exploring these narrow streets is a treat, and youll love the eclectic stores of this fashion-forward district.
The high-end luxury fashionista will be in seventh heaven exploring the stores along Avenue des Champs-Elyses, while the St. Germain neighborhood overflows with stylish boutiques offering trendy finds.
