Shopper’s Diary: Alix D. Reynis Shop in Paris

July 11, 2016

We first discovered the work of self-taught porcelain artist Alix D. Reynis in 2015 (see Pretty in Porcelain: Alix D. Reynis in Paris). In May, she opened an eponymous shop in the Marais district of Paris, with her tableware and lighting collections on display. Let’s take a look.

Above: Reynis, who is also an interior designer, painted nearly every corner of the shop in charcoal, save for the floors and structural wood posts and beams.  (“It was a tailor shop before,” says Reynis, “and quite crappy.”)

The built-in display cases on the back wall show Reynis’s vintage-inspired Jewelry.

Above: The shop is mostly lit by Reynis’s own ceramic pendant lights, or Luminaires, which range in price from €150 to €220. The staircase in the back leads to Reynis’s second-floor studio, where she makes her jewelry and the plaster casts for her ceramics.
