Tips FROM THE RIGHT BANK: Favorite Home Decor Shops in Paris

One of the questions I get asked the most is: “Where should I go shopping in Paris?” Obviously there are thousands of places (there are entire books dedicated to this topic) so the answer really depends on what you’re looking for, your style, budget, location, etc., etc.

A while ago, I put together a list of antique and vintage clothing shops in response to a reader’s question. To supplement that list I’ve compiled all the home decor store recommendations I’ve made over the past year or so here. (These are the stores I’m visiting on this trip.)

The Collection
Boutique showcasing home decor items and furnishings created by European designers.
33, rue de Poitou, 3e

19 & 22, rue Saint Nicolas, 12e
Furniture, lighting, decorative objects, linens and textiles with a global flavor.

Sentou Galerie
29, rue François Miron, 4e
26, boulevard Raspail, 7e
Fun, contemporary furniture, housewares, and gifts representing a wide array of designers.

Cire Trudon
The world’s oldest -and arguably the best – candle maker established in 1643. Yes, 1643!
78 Rue de Seine, 6e

Khadi and Co.
37, rue Debelleyme, 3e
Clothing and home textiles made of hand spun traditional Indian cotton.

Tombées du Camion
Some call it junk, others call it found objects. Either way, this place has a lot of it.
17 rue Joseph de Maistre, 18e

Emery & Cie
Fabric, wallpaper, paint, rugs, tiles, hardware ….. to die for.
18, passage de la Main d’Or, 11e

Astier de Villatte
Exquisite ceramics beloved by all.
173, Saint Honoré, 1e

Marche Saint-Pierre
Mega fabric store.
2 rue Charles Nodier, 18e

I already blogged about the store, Merci, almost two years ago here. I don’t think I have time for it this time but if you haven’t been, I definitely recommend it. I also posted earlier about Cote Bastide, Blanc d’Ivoire and Habitat.


  1. Next time I wil come with you – carrying your bags, if nothing else!

    I love Paris. And it is wonderful to have you scout out the best stores!

    I wonder if good old Colette is still around? I remember that as a fun shop.

    “Décor” is NOT France or even Europe’s greatest strength, unless we’re talking about the old styles that we’ve mostly completely abandoned in exchange for primitive shapes and plastic. And I’m saying this as a french.

  3. LLH Designs says:

    I’m saving this post for my next trip. I’m long overdue! I’d LOVE a whole set of dishes from Astier de Villatte!

    SO happy for you that you got to go to a place you love!


Thanks so much for taking time to comment! I read every one and reply through my own comments.
