Store History

  • Founded: 2000
  • Headquarters: Paris, France

Founded in Paris in 2000, the Potiron brand was initially known as a home decor distributor to large European department stores. Over the next few years Potiron Paris evolved into a professional home decor and gift retailer and has since experienced great success. Today, Potiron products are available through a network of 25 corporate and franchise stores in addition to over 500 partnered distributors and independent retailers around the world. Now available in North America for the first time, Potiron is excited to offer its great products west of the Atlantic ocean! Shop with us online or visit our store (opening in downtown Montreal, spring 2011) to see our gorgeous collections first hand.

Potiron has existed in Paris for about a decade. It's an affordable brand of home decor and tabletop that's sold in department stores and Potiron retail shops. In American retail terms, it's somewhere between Pier One and Crate & Barrel, but more modern.

In the last few months, they've expanded, opening a North American website for Canadian and American shoppers. December saw the ribbon-cutting of their first American retail store at a mall in Naples, Florida, and a new Canadian flagship shop is slated to open in Montreal this spring.

While their primary focus seems to be gift items and small, easily shippable housewares, they also have a collection of furniture that includes dining chairs, tables, shelving, and a few sofas and armchairs.
