Since 1831, the company Deyrolle has presented collections of insects and shells, naturalized animals of all kinds, natural curios and educational material for natural science teaching, among which are the famous “Planches Deyrolle” (Deyrolle’s plates). We will find many original ideas to embellish or create decors.
Working beside Pierre Hermé for three years, Claire Damon realised that her sensitivity could become the guiding principle to produce a cake and an emotion. She went on to work at Ladurée before joining the brigade de cuisine of Le Bristol and of the Plaza Athénée and met David Granger, known to be on an endless quest for the ideal bread. Together they launched this shop mixing the best of their worlds.

Angelina, rue de Rivoli’s iconic pastry shop has finally crossed the Seine to open a new store rue du Bac, between the rue de Varennes and the rue de Babylone. Now we can enjoy the signature Mont Blanc and Saint Honoré although we would have travelled the world to get them anyway.
Founded in 1954 by Jean Fournier (1922-2006), this art gallery still stands up for the choices made by Jean Fournier concerning abstraction but associating it to younger artists : James Bishop, Pierre Buraglio, Didier Demozay, Sam Francis, Simon Hantaï, Pierre Mabille, Jean-François Maurige, Michel Parmentier, Jean-Paul Riopelle, François Rouan, Peter Soriano, Claude Tétot or Claude Viallat mix with younger artists such as Frédérique Lucien, Nathalie Elemento, Stéphane Bordarier, Elizabeth Cooper, Nicolas Guiet and Emmanuel Van der Meulen.

Christian Liaigre does not like fashion and does not deny it, nature inspires him. His style is contemporary, uncluttered and has been influencing many designers for twenty five years. His favorite material is wood, in particular wengé, dark and African, that contributed a lot to drawing to him the attention of the public. He likes having many projects, creating collections of furniture, rethinking a place like the Hotel Mercer in New York City or famous people’s houses (Lagerfeld, Kenzo, Rupert Murdoch, Bryan Adams) nearly everywhere in the world.
Since almost 100 years, Poltrona Frau has been working with the greatest names in design : Pierluigi Cerri, Achille Castiglioni, Michele de Lucchi, Jean-Marie Massaud, Andrée Putman or Cini Boeri… Considered as the “Hermès of Italian furniture”, the quality of production has always been a priority for the company, following the example of its patented leather, Pelle Frau, gotten after twenty one different stages of production and available in more than ninety shades of color.

Ria is Filipina and Yiouri is Cypriot, one studied design and the other architecture. They met in London in the 1980s where they both worked for the designer John Stefanidis. Few years later they decided to achieve (to fulfil) their dream by creating their first collection of furniture and by showing it in Paris. Success was instantaneous : the Crillon placed an order for the apartments of this luxury hotel, Neiman Marcus and Barney’s show them in New York City. They settled in the Rue du Bac and since then never stopped creating furniture very inspired by Art Deco for which they have no limits concerning the choice of materials that they use, like at that time : rare woods, crocodile, python, cobra or ostrich skin, but also horn or mothers-of-pearls.
After Habitat, Sir Terence Conran created the Conran Shop, his own line of shops, in 1973 in London, in which he wants to show both great design classics and the young designers’ creations. In Paris, he settled in the former warehouses of the Bon Marché designed by Gustave Eiffel. The Conran Shop is a successful alternative between the mass consumption design like Ikea or Habitat and the design in unique pieces or in numbered series presented in galleries.
