Paris: Habitat

• 23 April 2009




































































This store posed the greatest temptation for my sister and I while in Paris. We wanted to bring back every well-designed wooden toy, Missoni-esque coverlet, polka dotted shower curtain, swiss flag clock, and colorful decal. The prices were very reasonable making it even more difficult to narrow down our choices (painfully necessary). Consider it a "must-stop" in Paris.

We enjoyed the location in the Les Halles Shopping Center because 1) it wasn't crowded due to it's slightly off-the-beaten-path location 2) it was a larger store and 3) the floor plan made it easy to navigate. In addition, you'll find Muji next door to this location making it a 2-for-1 :) Next time I'll bring a larger duffle bag...

  8. I live at Habitat in England. Okay, sometimes I dream of moving in and just not leaving. It is a wonderful place. Slowly my own home is becoming Habitat and my bank account is running on empty. Oh, and Muji. And Zara. And Monsoon.
