One of the drawbacks to working with a group of trendy Parisians is that they always seem to find the best deals on some amazing antiques. But the upside? Inspiration AND resources! After my Paris-based co-worker sent me photos of another one of his great finds (a 19th century hair salon chair in perfect condition--and he plans on using it as a task chair), I finally got ONE resource out of him to share: Voilà, Le Grenier!
This shop is chock full of beautiful items from gorgeous weather-worn doors salvaged from a restaurant to inspiring statues that look wonderful in a garden. And while we can find equally great vintage pieces in our own salvage yards and estate sales, it's inspiring to see some authentic French antiques--and how some of these pieces are reinterpreted today.
