Travel: Paris' Marché aux Puces

Paris is full of history – obvious enough, right? For a walk through the past, visit the Marché aux Puces at the Porte de Clignancourt. Furniture, clothing, accessories and every day knick-knacks from periods gone by are housed in this large antique market at the edge of Paris. The atmosphere is lively and busy and there are plenty of things to grab (and keep!) your attention for hours.

For a bite to eat and some Edith Piaf entertainment, visit Chez Louisette.

Antique Lights at Caviar 20

Caviar 20 continues to offer an incredible selection of artwork, antique furniture and beautiful sculptures. I am particularly smitten with their unique white light fixtures. Each one tells a story of an era gone by.

First up is a white lamp circa 1970 designed by the well-known Venitian glass-makers, Vistosi.

 Next we have the Danish disc chandelier. I love the sculptural sophistication of this piece.

A third favourite is this unique French art deco octagon chandelier. It adds instant glamour to any room.
