Empreintes Concept Store - Smart Shopping in Paris
EMPREINTES is a french fine crafts concept store in the 3rd arrondissement, close to the "High Marais" and le Marché des Enfants rouges. A market place in the hearth of the right bank that showcases more than 1,000 unique and limited edition pieces of art, handmade in the workshops of French craftsmen and artists of matter.
I had the luck to visit the place with Vincent Bridenne who of course, as Photographer, made great pictures and some artists friends who made me notice every single details in a lot of creations.
You have three floors of high ceilings, in a light industrial style, with a comfortable café, where you can admire furniture, glasses, decorations. Unique jewelry for all tastes.
Should you look for inspiration for your own home, to observe pure and unusual colors or a very lovely gift, you'll find it there.
Price range may go from 40€ from a small jewel; to 5 000€ for a painted zinc mural art. May be too expensive but at least showing very clearly the trends and the differents path of the evolution of interior design.
