Have you ever been to Merci in Paris? You know that lifestyle store that has a cult following from all over the world… which I guess Includes me!!
Take a detour, you will be happy you did! Located at 111 Boulevard Beaumarchais in Le Marias.
Merci never disappoints because they are on the cutting edge of style with fashion as well as Home Decor.
The vibe; bustling with trendy people from all over the world coming to see the newest textures, substrates, colors and style updates.
Today they were making custom chair tops from a powdery substance that allows you, the consumer, to design your chairs on the spot! Right in the store! Pretty awesome! Pretty millennial! And Pretty Fast!!
The beauty of these custom chairs is that no two are alike since each one is individually made. With the various color combinations and ombré effects that you can create using these powder substrates…it’s an instant DIY! Each one is an original work of art and a true one of a kind… I am ready to create mine!
I was probably the biggest skeptic when I heard two years ago that my favorite overseas show was heading to Miami for its debut in America. It’s been two years now, I have attended both shows, walked all aisles, met new designers, found innovative products and love chillin’ in Maimi…so I guess I am no longer a skeptic and more of a fan!
Happy to share some global greats from this past Maison Objet show which took place in Miami May 10-13.
