Had dinner at this great Bistro on the Seine - La Rotisserie du Beaujolais - and sat in these chairs. Totally sturdy, comfortable and classic.


The Palais Royale has remarkable arcades that give you a strong feeling for classical French design. Totally centered and carefully leading the eye towards a distant view. Note, as well, how active the floor tiles are when turned on the diagonal.


This was just such a sweet little accomodation of old design that we snapped it. This spiral staircase is very narrow, has no banister and snakes up by the window of a shop on the Left Bank.
