We're back from a fabulous weekend in Paris--a quick getaway to see friends coupled with charming city-walking and fantastic food.
A highlight of the weekend included my much anticipated visit to the Parisian homestore Merci. I previously read about Merci from the blog Stephmodo. Later, I learned that the owners were the same people who founded Bonpoint. Merci also gives 100% of proceeds to a charity in Madagascar. Add all that together and naturally visiting was a top priority!
Of course, I was not disappointed. Merci houses an eclectic mix of old and new, affordable and expensive. From clothing to furniture to fun kitchen accessories and bedding and perfume... A fine shopping experience, indeed!
Some of my favourites:
LOVE these chairs.
Has paper dinnerware ever looked so cool?
Would happily take any one of these chairs...
A puzzle dinner!
Charming bookstore cafe.
