City guide for the Paris Design Week

Paris Design Week

While the invitations of cocktail parties, special openings and exhibitions for the Deco-Off are dropping in, it is time to share you more about the Paris Design Week. Last year we published a guide for the Maison et Objet and the Deco-Off, today we give an overview with highlights of the city you don’t want to miss. Let’s warm you up for one of the best weeks of the year!

Deco-Off Event

The Deco-Off is a yearly event that focuses on one of the best interior design brands worldwide, most of them specialised in fabrics and wallpapers. The two districts, Rive Droite & Rive Gauche, are featured with openings of showrooms, presentations of new collections, pop-up ateliers and intimate cocktail parties to top it off. For us, this is the place to be during the Paris Design Week in January. It’s always very nice to meet our partners again and experience their newest creations. Save the dates for this year: 19th of January until the 27th of January 2017.

Lelièvre & Jean Paul Gaultier

Lelièvre starts this year with new beginning and will launch its first wallpaper collection in their history. We are very curious to see the new ‘Les Papiers’ collection designed by Jean Paul Gaultier! But they will not be the only one who reveals new things.

Historical Tassinari et Chatel

Last year we attended a presentation at the beautiful atelier of  Tassinari et Chatel, where we had an insiders look into their archives, definitely one-to-watch for this year!


Another very interesting participant is Declercq Passementiers. Discover how beautiful home accessories as trimmings and tassels are made, see how difficult the process is of choosing the right threads, weaving it together and creating a final product of the highest quality. A historical manufacture that produces their pieces for royal families and very unique customers. A must-visit to put on your to do list!

Antiques market Saint Ouen

This market, also known as “Puces“, is not a flea-market as you may think. The flea-market hosts 14 markets where you can find one of the best antiques dealers, designers and artisans in the world. An authentic and unique place to find outrageous antiques pieces and it’s open in the weekend, go there!

Next to the showrooms, antique market and Maison et Objet fair it is always good to save some time and get inspired by Paris itself. Bring a visit the L’Hotel and admire the intimate hotel decor, eat at the real French restaurants and enjoy the romantic atmosphere.
