A jeweler as there are only about fifty in France. For almost 30 years, Inédit has been creating and manufacturing exceptional jewellery by hand in the Maison’s workshops in Rouen. A team of three gemologists travels the world to find stones that meet the highest standards. Only those that require color, purity, fluorescence and size quality are set.
We love the chic and confidential spirit of the place, which nevertheless sits in the nerve center of Saint-Germain-des-Prés. We are received with all the attention we deserve when choosing a jewel, since it is always an exceptional moment, which signs a story, an event, a promise or an oath.
By presenting a selection of American designers, Jacques Barret, who directs TRIODE, highlights a dynamic scene, little known in Europe, which despite a relatively short history, benefits from a rich legacy left by Russel Wright, Henry Dreyfuss, Normand Bel Geddes, Raymond Loewy, Ray & Charles Eames or George Nelson. Lindsey Adelman, Bec Brittain, Apparatus, Gabriel-Scott, Roll & Hill, Jason Miller, John Pomp, Jonah Takagi, or David Weeks have found at TRIODE a real showcase to present their creations.
Triode produit et distribue aussi sous son nom des pièces exclusives de jeunes designers comme Pierre Gonalons et Simon Naouri, ainsi que les rééditions de créateurs emblématiques du siècle dernier tels Sergio Rodrigues ou Richard Neutra.
Maylis Queyrat and Charles Tassin, respectively designer and interior designer, present here their creations that often pay tribute to the 60s and 70s and bring up to date materials that we love such as lacquered wood, patinated steel and polished aluminum.
How can we recognize a chic low-fronted shoe in Paris, New York or in the Savannah ? All that thanks to Christian Louboutin.
Thanks to its red soles and its 12 centimeters high heels, but also because we can run with them as well as with ballet shoes.
All that thanks to Christian Louboutin.
Following the success of his restaurant Aux Prés, Cyril Lignac was bound to open an additional place to cater to the many unfortunate customers unable to book a table when Friday came.

At the Bar des Prés, Cyril Lignac develops fusion food, blending his traditional French cuisine with Asian touches.
In this shop, what we have is more gastronomic pastry than simple pastry. Pierre Hermé is an avant-garde pastry confectioner and a magician with flavors. He revolutionizes the most established traditions and eliminates the excessive or useless decors which clutter cake shops. He uses salt as sugar to bring out other shades of flavors and he constantly reassesses his own work by exploring new territories or by revisiting his own recipes.
This bookshop created by Karl Lagerfeld presents a great selection of books about photography, decorative arts and architecture and some trendy magazines.
Yves Gastou is a specialist for furniture and sculpture of the 1940s, 1950s, 1960s, 1970s. He hunts for, rediscovers all the forgotten designers of those years. He was the one who since 1985 has organized the first exhibitions in France of Ron Arad, Ettore Sottsass or Shiro Kuramata, that he then confronted with the works by older major designers of the 1940s and 1950s as André Arbus, Jacques Adnet, Paul Evans, Gabriella Crespi, Joe Colombo and many others. It is thanks to gallery owners like him that we now enjoy the return of Art Deco in the forefront.
Since 1951, the eponymous brand has been the ultimate reference in silk for home furnishing. It offers fabrics designed, woven and dyed in the purest South-East Asian tradition as well as collaborations with the most notorious designers.

This is a favourite of the art galleries in the vicinity and artists bring the fun to the place. You will also meet fashionistas and writers. In the spring and summer time, the terrasse is delightful for a drink and a Sunday brunch.
