In Paris: La Tuille a Loup

Posted by

While in Paris I had the pleasure of visiting La Tuile A Loup, a wonderful shop in downtown Paris that has an exquisite collection of handcrafted  french wares.  Eric Goujou has currated a beautiful shop and I was lucky enough to meet him.  Have a look:

They would be perfect to set a table for a summer or fall lunch.  They look like prize winning kale.

I love the way that this classic shape takes on a modern twist because of the glazing.

I am coveting these plates. There were numerous color combos.  One was more beautiful than the next.

These large plates remind me of plates that Martha and I had seen in Istanbul a few years ago.

After we finished shopping we took a stroll around the neighborhood and checked out a few of the local markets.  It is an extremely charming neighborhood and I wish we could have stayed a little longer as there were plenty of shops to explore.
