1. Moissonnier

Moissonnier

Imagine if Marie Antoinette and the King of Macarons, Pierre Hermé, had a love-child. The result would be Moissonnier, an old-school company established in 1885, crafting according to the traditions of the past but with a twist. You will be dazzled by the Marie Antoinette 18th-century, macaron-colored dressers, armchairs and sideboards in emerald, raspberry, lemon yellow and mandarin orange. Moissonnier resurrects timeless furniture from the past and then customizes their wing chairs, tables, and buffets with modern patinas and the colors of the rainbow.

3. Gilles Nouailhac – CLOSED

Gilles Nouailhac

If you were hoping to order something from traditional furniture specialist Gilles Nouailhac you've missed your chance. The company is now closed, shut down, finished. In case you're itereested, here's what we previously said about Galerie specialist —

We're particularly fond of the Louis XV Gondole three-seat sofa, shown above. All Nouailhac's luxury pieces — from dining tables and armchairs to ottomans and sofas — are hand-sculpted and upholstered employing French traditional methods, using the finest fabrics.

If you're in the market to outfit your chateau, they offer castle-worthy 18th-century reproductions. All of their furniture is made in France and is completely customizable with your choice of fabric, patinas, and finishes.

4. Jardins du Roi Soleil

Jardins du Roi Soleil

Along with our pal Lorde, we all want to be royal. Jardins du Roi Soleil means "Gardens of the Sun King" and it specializes in garden furniture inspired by the decorative arts of Chateau de Versailles. They are, in fact, the official supplier to the Palace of Versailles.

Think solid oak benches, hand-made cast-iron vases, trellis lanterns, and planters. Their piece de la resistance is a patented version of the exact orange tree box planter designed by André Le Notre in 1670 and used by Louis XIV to decorate his gardens at Versailles. As you would expect, everything here is crafted in France.

Here you can admire the talents of French designers Jean Prouvé, Charlotte Perriand, Pierre Jeanneret, Le Corbusier, and Jean Royère.

6. Galerie Alexandre Biaggi

Alexandre Biaggi

Born in Corsica, Alexandre Biaggi was always intrigued with the old things in his father's antique furniture collection. After graduating with a law degree, Biaggi went on to get a diploma in auctioneer studies. (Who knew there was such a thing?) After graduating he started his career by selling antiques at the Saint-Ouen Flea market.

In 1996, he established his own shop, focusing French 19th- and 20th-century furniture. He is also the exclusive dealer of contemporary designers Herve vander Straeten and Nicolas Aubagnac. Today, you can browse his collection of high-end lighting, mirrors, tables and chairs, and fine arts in his Saint Germain studio.

7. Galerie May

Galerie May

Everything sold at Galerie May — tables, chairs, shelves, lamps, mirrors — is a tribute to the decorative arts of the 20th and 21st centuries. The chic yet quirky gallery belongs to artist Maylis Queyrat and interior designer Charles Tassin and features furnishings with 1940s-1970s revival glamour. Apart from their interior design projects, Gallery May also makes furniture using traditional techniques and materials like lacquer and ceramic. The result is minimalist with exquisite details and finishes.

8. Sentou Galerie

Sentou Galerie

The Sentou name gained popularity in Paris in the 1940s when Robert Sentou began selling unique design objects like Japanese lamps and the famous spiral staircases by Roger Tallon. Sentou is now a favorite Parisian design and lifestyle brand offering furnishings and designer collections in all categories — lighting, textiles, tableware, and decorative items. There are three locations in Paris; we're particularly fond of this location in the Marais.
