Happy Wednesday, all. How about a little splash of color to boost us through the middle of the week? It's been so lovely to see the bright lanterns currently hanging in the Place de Furstemberg for Paris Deco Off pop into my Instagram feed this week. It reminded me that I never shared photos from last year when they danced over my head as I walked through the loveliest little square in Paris.
Right around the corner from Ladurée Royal, the Place de Furstemberg measures just 20 by 22 meters, but the world's greatest fabric houses grace the tiny square. Pierre Frey, Rubelli, Manuel Canovas, Osborne & Little all share the place with the four flowering paulownia trees and 19th century lantern described by Henry Miller in Tropic of Cancer. Delacroix lived and painted here the last years of his life and the Musée National Eugène Delacroix occupies his apartment and studio.
Where do you wish you were wandering this week? XO
