Cherished by lovers of ethnic decoration, the brand’s first shop was hidden away on rue Pavée, in a vast space illuminated by a high glass ceiling. The boutique offers a magnificent selection of items from all corners of the globe or created by the owner Véronique Piedeleu herself. Colourful pieces demonstrate the artisanal savoir-faire, imagination and modernity of their creators. It’s easy to spend an age contemplating the deep and customizable sofas, before making a decision.
Craftsmanship, Luxury and Refinement
As you explore the shop in search of beautiful souvenirs you will be transported: to Egypt as you peruse the selection of hand-embroidered bedroom and bathroom lines in Egyptian cotton, to Portugal for their earthenware, or to North Africa for a traditional Berber carpet. You might be tempted by an Indian inspired steel mirror or a delicate bamboo lamp from Vietnam. It’s all about the craftsmanship here — an ode to slow design.
Can’t make up your mind? You can book an appointment with the design department who will give you expert advice on interior design and how to develop a sense of ambience. Caravane has boutiques in both the Bastille and Saint-Germain-des-Près neighbourhoods, but you can also find them at the chic Bon Marché Rive Gauche department store.
