Winter sales and decoration ideas during your stay in Paris
Published on 9 January 2017, dans Fashion and Shopping
If you happen to be visiting Paris this January, a couple of dates to note are the 11th, when the Winter Sales begin, and the 20th; the opening of the Maison & Objet trade show for lovers of design and lifestyle innovations. Book a break at the Hotel Université and enjoy both of these events. Nestled in the heart of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, this contemporary haven of peace will replenish your batteries with a delicious continental breakfast before you go in search of bargains or explore the aisles of Maison & Objet.
Great deals to be had just a few steps from the Hotel Université
The famous Bon Marché department store is just a fifteen minute stroll away. This Art Deco style building with a typical Left Bank spirit was the world’s first department store in the mid-19th century and today remains a temple of stylishness and retail excellence. Whatever your desires; a camel cashmere overcoat or designer dress, romantic bed linen or the perfect vase for your lounge, you’ll find them all here. If you prefer the friendlier atmosphere of the Galeries Lafayette, the Metro or the bus will take you there in 15 minutes. If you want to browse the luxury shops of the Golden Triangle, a 20 minute trip is required.
Maison & Objet trade show; the home and lifestyle event of January
Accessible from central Paris by public transport or shuttle services, this international trade fair brings together the whole world of interior design and offers a look at the latest trends amidst a profusion of sophisticated or deliberately unrefined staging. Under the theme of ‘Silence’, the 2017 edition will introduce you to luminous living spaces, light furniture and minimalist motifs, while part of the trade fair is dedicated to the ‘realm of children’. The latest toys, semi-ergonomic semi-playful furniture in natural wood, and fluffy fabrics are offered for the child of the 21st century.
