I recently visited Porte de Clingancourt, a breathtaking Paris flea market that has the distinction of being the largest antique market in the world.
The experience was second to none, with everything from the local ambiance to the remarkable variety of furnishings delighting my fancy and drawing out new inspirations.
At the Porte de Clingancourt, I was excited to see an interest in vintage style. The look has heavily influenced our transitional interior design; I came across many pieces that would stand out inside any home from downtown Boston to the Back Bay.
What was even more intriguing was the history associated with each of these pieces. The dealers feel a real connection with their items. Their lifelong passion is bringing beautiful designs to customers and in-depth conversations were commonplace.
Many of the dealers at this Paris flea market have shops elsewhere in France, selling their items both in their storefronts and online. This makes it easier for tourists to bring these intriguing styles into their home. From vintage china to hand-upholstered vintage furniture with the most intricate of patterns, the items speak volumes with every glance.
Those with an interest in transitional interior design will love the atmosphere and offerings available. If you go, be sure to enjoy time at a small cafe and meander slowly around Porte de Clingancourt.
I’m eager to begin incorporating these stunning items from Paris into your home. For more information about how we can integrate these uniquely beautiful pieces into your next design, contact Chrisicos Interiors at 617-699-9462.
