August 8-11: "The Paris Apartment" !

There is nothing that helps me soak in the French experience more than having our own apartment in Paris.  If only for one short week or for a long stay, having a place to "nest" and call home helps me feel as if I really am living life as a Parisian.

Just like Americans, Parisians (and the French in general) have a wide variety of tastes.  But something binds them together.  A love of the worldly, the cosmopolitan.  A flair for the eclectic.  A need for travel.  A passion for practicality and efficiency embodied in style.   And, of course, a love of fashion! 

We want to share our vision of the Paris apartments we have grown to love over the years -- please join us for Confectionique's  "The Paris Apartment" Market August 8-11th!  This year, our Paris Apartment market is inspired by -- and pays homage to -- the fashion and style of the great Parisian designer Coco Chanel.  Click here for a sneak peek of the treasures we have in store for you!

When you think of a Paris apartment you may imagine white furnishings, chandeliers and gold mirrors -- it can be these things, certainly, but a Paris apartment can also have a modern or minimalist look.  It is not unusual to find a centuries-old wardrobe next to an Eames chair, for example.  In the end, a Paris apartment is about using the elements of design in a compact space that is aesthetically beautiful, well-designed and functional.

Parisians are experts at making little spaces seem big. They do this with multi-use furniture, getting by only with what they need (most Parisians would consider art and decorative pieces a need ) and bringing this all together in a cohesive and useful manner which showcases one's individuality and -- above all -- remains stylish. After nesting in a smaller space while living in Paris, it does make me wonder if I really need so much stuff at home.

We hope you will join us at our "Paris Apartment" market where you will feel inspired, like Coco Chanel, to live in style.  Shop like a Parisian, live like the French!

**Due to high interest, we will be opening at 4pm (one hour earlier than normal) for Nuit Blanche on Thursday August 8th.**
