La Trésorerie: A New Interiors Shop in Paris

Margot Guralnick July 16, 2014

Paris designer Gesa Hanson tipped us off: the new, must-see shop in Paris right now is La Trésorerie, a housewares emporium specializing in timeless, well-made goods with a European accent. Located steps from Place de la République, the shop is housed in a former treasury building–look for the exterior metal grills–and even has its own Swedish cafe.

“Our politic when it comes to selecting merchandise is quite simple,” says Lino Landau, who opened La Trésorerie with two design-minded friends, Denis Greffault, founder of Paris’s organic food shop Lemo, and Elsa Coustals, who hails from the fashion industry. “We like good-quality products that are made in Europe; we like long-lasting materials, such as cast iron, glass, stainless steel, and stoneware; and we like sourcing from companies that own their own factories or workshops. We sell things that have stories to tell.”
