Paris is beautiful. No doubt about it. But aside from holiday pics, you can’t take it with you when you go. You can, however, take a few Parisian-inspired, ever-so-chic homewares with you. That’s where La Trésorerie comes in; it’s the concept store of your dreams. There’s a reason that so many people refer to it as a “treasure trove”. For starters, that’s what the word actually means in French. But also because it applies.
Here, you’ll find everything from ceramic measuring jugs to Danish candles, coffee tables and coffee cups to bags and benches. Basically, anything you need to make your home a little more stylish, with a little extra Parisian esprit, you’ll find it at La Trésorerie. A jaunt around here actually improves your taste; it’s like an interior design contact high.
When the urge to refuel arises, and it will (you invariably spend more time here than you think you will), head next door to Café Smörgås. This bijou cafe serves breakfast and lunch, and excels at elevating the humble sandwich to heady heights. The smørrebrød (Swedish open-faced sandwiches) are delicious, topped with everything from avocado to egg salad. Pastries and cakes also grace the menu, as do healthy salads, for those in the mood for a lighter bite. And after an extra cup of coffee, you’ll be ready to resume your shopping.
