We also plan to go to the Maison et Objet. I ordered tickets for this event yesterday (ps: there is no fee for admission if you are an IIDA member). The Maison et Objet is Europe’s largest design event that features products from around the world, such as textiles, furniture, housewares, and tableware. There are two shows a year – one in January and the other in September. During this week, there are many other design events taking place.
Perhaps I will purchase a piece of art from a local artist?
My brother and his wife will be joining us on this trip. It is their first trip to Paris and they are beyond thrilled. We will be visiting museums and other tourist sights with them, as well as new dining establishments of traditional French cuisine (I’m open to suggestions). We rented an apartment in the 7th as this has been our favourite place to stay. We love the area… the Rue Cler market, patisseries along Rue Saint-Dominique, and my husband is especially fond of El Sol’s ham for midnight snacks. The locals could not be nicer and our apartment is especially close to the Batobus stop at the Eiffel.
