Ordinary rummage sale? I think not! Ordinary rummage sale? I think not!Leave it to the Parisians to cleverly style the way they present their vintage wares at the Paris Flea Market. It’#39;s one of my favorite places to visit in Paris, even if only for some interesting inspiration.If you find some large items, like the perfect chandelier or chaise lounge, most venders are pretty savvy to help you ship them back to the states… for a price, of course. Luckily inspiration is priceless.The last time that I was in Paris, I tagged along on one of Richard Nahem’#39;s walking tours of Paris and we had the most incredible time looking for fashion and some rather glamourous home items. I’#39;ll let Richard Nahem take you on a tour of some of his recent Puces St. Ouen/St. Ouen Flea Market flea market finds. Wish I was there, but this is the next best way to experience it, don’#39;t you think? –S.H.Published on August 16, 2011

You all must know that I cannot possibly imagine living in a home without the benefit of having something beautiful to look at and inspire by way of its furniture. For me, in particular, the chair can take so many artistic and creative forms that I wish I could collect as many as my other obsession- shoes and boots!>>MORE: Home StyleI've almost run out of any possible space to add another "interesting" chair in our loft, so I've come to admire from afar, particularly ones that have a different design aesthetic from my home. Richard Nahem, who has a pretty fab pad in Paris, came across this incredible melding of design and fashion with classic high-end furniture reproductions on one of his Parisian walking tours.Both Richard and I love La Fumeuse, pictured left, and we don't even smoke! It's a hot pink velvet "smoking chair," complete with with cigarette box by fashion designer Chantal Thomass. The chair is made of black varnished beechwood and nickel plated nails and fabric by Pierre Frey. Here's what more of what he found –S.H.Taillardat is a manufacturer specializing in luxurious high-quality reproductions of 18th century furniture including Marie Antoinette, Louis XV, Louis XVI, Empire, and Directoire styles.Published on March 30, 2011

Left Bank Hermes Store in Paris is Ultra Modern Luxury. Retail Remedy: Is it possible to outdo a classic? Hermés on the rue St. Honoré is my favorite luxury store in Paris. Hermés opened a new shop on the Left Bank in December, and it is a stunner.They have lightened their approach with an airy, loft-like space on three levels housed in the former Art Noveau swimming pool of the Lutetia Hotel. At the entrance is a flower shop bursting with buoyant blooms by florist Baptiste Pitou.Then comes the most dramatic part of the shop: A sweeping staircase made of curved strips of ash wood. Walking down the grand staircase one feels like a decadent showgirl– all that's missing is a feathered head dress and the song A Pretty Girl…. playing.>>MORE: ParisPublished on January 27, 2011
