While in Paris, a shop you shouldn’t miss is Les Fées on 19 Rue Charlot in the Le Marais neighbourhood. Les Fées, meaning fairies, is a lovely boutique with unique and exclusive interior design accessories with a feminine touch. Owner Sylvie Aubry is known for her sumptuous floral arrangements in the Hôtel Crillon and the Hôtel Meurice. In her boutique she carries a continuous changing assortment of accessories, fabrics and ceramics.
Stuffed peacocks proudly perch amid delicate glassware, exquisite ceramics and colourful fabrics. I loved the hand-painted porcelain plates with dragonflies by Elise Levebevre. And the pillows with city skylines. Another eye-catcher is the curiosities cabinet with more stuffed birds and curiosities that are on trend.
Les Fées caters to all budgets, offering everything from one-off designer pieces, such as ceramics by Valerie Casado, or Roos van de Velde to glimmering glassware in unusual designs. Downstairs in the cellar you’ll find fabrics and more exclusive ceramics by e.g. Mano design and Jansen+CO.
