Le Petit Atelier de Paris

June 4, 2012

Is Le Petit Atelier de Paris the most magical shop in France? We think so; the tiny workshop and boutique in the Marais offers ceramics and housewares reflecting the store’s motto: “Du bonheur au quotidien” (“Happiness in the everyday”).

Owned by artists Jae-Hyun Cheong and Stéphane Froger, the shop is a showcase for wares of their own porcelain creations and by resident artisans (the workshop has an artist-in-residence program), along with rotating art exhibitions. The shop closes for a few months out of the year so the space can be devoted to creating pottery, and to allow the owners (and their dog, a Shiba Inu named Pompom) to go picnicking on the coast of the í‰tretat region in upper Normandy. Go to Le Petit Atelier de Paris to plan your visit.
