I found my new favorite gallery! I was profiting an evening off and walking around few days ago and accidentally saw the most interesting gallery; L’Atelier 55. The three floors are FULL of antique furniture, art, candles and small decoration pieces, everything from Ettore Sottsass to Pierre Jeanneret and Murano glass objects. As an opposite from usual galleries, which tend to be very distant and a bit scary to enter, L’Atelier 55 has more a boutique-like atmosphere with even prices put on everything. I might have to go back for the Murano glass ashtrays seen above. L’Atelier 55, 8 Rue des Saints-Pères, 75007 Paris
Office chair by Pierre Jeanneret in my favorite color of the moment. I spotted this at Galerie Jousse in rue de Seine, where most of my favorite galleries are located.
I visited once again my favorite gallery Galerie Patrick Seguin and spotted there this yellow pony hair sofa designed for Punjab University, Chandigarh by Pierre Jeanneret in 1952-56. I’ve been very into bright colors lately.

I haven’t seen this color combination before, I love the dark grey and brown wood together. Spotted in a gallery along rue de Seine.
Galerie Patrick Seguin hosted The Row’s showroom this for AW2018 season, which makes so much sense. The gallery is specialized in the 20th century furniture and architecture. It is quite hidden in Bastille and the breathtaking space is designed by architect Jean Nouvel. I’m sure it is also one of the places the Olsen sisters acquires their furniture.
Dreamy lounge set by Pierre Jeanneret, spotted at a small gallery in Saint Germain. I need to start writing down the gallery names, and maybe do a small guide?

If you are a fan of architects like Jean Prouvé, Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret, when visiting Paris you should pay a visit for Galerie Patrick Seguin in Bastille. Not only the gallery space designed by Jean Nouvel is gorgeus, but also every piece of furniture they have on display.

Modern architecture is not the first thing that comes in mind when thinking about Paris and it’s Haussmann buildings. However, there are couple of gems worth visiting.
Maison Louis Carré, designed by Finnish Alvar Aalto is located 45 minutes outside of Paris and open for visitors every weekend. French art dealer Louis Carré was first considering Le Corbusier to design his new home but was not so convinced by his “colder” style such as use of beton.
Maison La Roche, designed by Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret is located in the 16th arrondissement of Paris. It was designed for a Swiss banker and art collector Raoul La Roche.
