The Slow Life in Paris, Baby and Chien Included

Issue 75 · Travels with an Editor: Paris · June 6, 2013

There was a period of time when I spent afternoons pouring over the blog of Jae-Hyun Cheong and Stéphane Froger, owners of Le Petit Atelier de Paris. Their picnics in Normandy, handmade porcelain pottery, and leisurely lifestyle left me a little wistful but resulted in a post about the shop, an infatuation with Shiba Inus (thanks to their mascot, Pompon), and eventually a trip in person last year.

Since we posted on the shop, Cheong and Froger now baby—an addition to the Le Petit Atelier clan. Read more about the shop and discover why their motto is "Du bonheur au quotidien" ("Happiness in the everyday") at Petit Atelier de Paris.
