Paris: touring the city's antiques markets - Daily Telegraph

Paris: touring the city's antiques markets - Daily Telegraph

Which we did. We whisked around Paul Bert before the dealers arrived, stopping if we spotted treasures, such as an industrial steel cabinet, which Paterson negotiated on my behalf (for €350). We methodically patrolled first one side, then the other, so nothing was missed. We shrugged off items that were clearly overpriced. And 90 minutes later, it was time for Vernaison: charming, fashionable bric-a-brac shops along cobbled alleys. "Definitely try to haggle here," Paterson recommended. "Some stuff has been here years, and they'll want to get rid of it."

But nothing caught my eye. Prices seemed high, given the exchange rate, and I was storing energy (and credit) for the Porte de Vanves flea market the next day (

With just 380 stalls set up on Saturdays and Sunday mornings, this southern Paris market in the 14th arrondissement is smaller, less expensive and more accessible than its more famous northern relative: a pavement corridor of makeshift stalls with the sort of objets décoratifs one dreams of discovering.

The Japanese come here and buy up lace, antique shirts and rustic, hand-sewn farming clothes. Americans scour for the silver. And, thankfully, having again arrived at 8am, as stalls were still being set up, we also found all sorts of treats to cart home. I bought a dozen hand-blown 1930s glasses (€30), horn-handled knives (€20 for a dozen), embroidered linen sheets (€10 each), a set of six Finnish Iittala glasses (€20), and – a bargain – a beautiful 1938 French still-life in warm velvety greys and greens (€100), now hanging above my kitchen fireplace.

On the train home, Paterson estimated that the money I had saved by buying at Paris markets rather than in London shops had almost paid for the trip. Plus, I had had the thrill of renting a bike through the brilliant, city-wide, self-service Vélo Liberté system and cycling along the Seine, whizzing past the Notre Dame by the light of a full moon. Even the horror of having to purchase an ugly nylon wheelie bag in order to get my smaller purchases home on Eurostar could not dampen those pleasures.

How to do it

Go early on a Friday to Clignancourt (Porte de Clignancourt Metro). Dealers go then, too, rather than on Saturdays or Sundays. Go to Vanves on a Saturday, from 7am, rather than Sunday (Porte de Vanves Metro).


Stay at Hôtel Pavillon de la Reine, 28 Place des Vosges, 3rd arr. (00 331 4029 1919, Charming, ivy-clad boutique hotel on the most beautiful square in Paris, in the Marais. From €380 a night for a double, room only. A two-night break costs from £749 per person, B&B, sharing, through Kirker Holidays (020 7593 2283,, including first-class Eurostar train travel, transfers, a Seine cruise, and a carnet of ten Metro/bus tickets.

Or try the Hotel Verneuil, 8 Rue de Verneuil, 7th arr. (00331 4260 8214, Quaint, tiny, very Parisian, and in the heart of the Saint-Germain-des-Prés antique district. From €174 for a double.

The guide

Stuart Paterson, who charges according to length of stay and research required (07932 061951,

Food and drink

Eat on Friday night at L'Epi Dupin, 11 Rue Dupin, 6th arr. (00331 4222 6456, François Pasteau's inventive menus change daily. On Saturday night, try La Petrelle, 34 rue Petrelle, 9th (00331 42 82 1102) for seasonal dishes, laid-back atmosphere and faded grandeur.

Treat yourself to a wicked hot chocolate at the atmospheric bistro Le Paul Bert, 20 rue Paul Bert, in the Clignancourt market.


Get around by bicycle. Register with a credit card, then pay per half-hour until reparking at one of the many Velib bike-stands (

Shopping tips

Drop in to Astier de Villatte, 173 Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré (00331 4260 7413, for classic French white crockery.

Find inspiration at La Petite Maison, 10 Rue Paul Bert, Clignancourt (00331 4010 5669), for fabulous, one-off antiques, and next door at Colonial Concept (00331 4010 0071,, packed with exotic curiosities such as stuffed peacocks and ancient African masks.

Find vintage clothes at Les Merveilles de Babellou, Alley 1, Paul Bert (00336 8063 2689).

For clothing bargains among current rather than vintage fashions, it is well worth travelling 35 minutes outside Paris to La Vallée Village, an outstanding designer outlet with 90 bargain-filled stores packed with labels from Agnès b to Zadig & Voltaire (

Lisbon shopping guide: hide and chic - Daily Telegraph

On Rua do Loreto, I step inside the wood-panelled Casa das Velas do Loreto (in the same family since 1789) and find tall, honey-scented ecclesiastical candles for £15. At A Vida Portuguesa, on Rua Anchieta, my heart quickens at the fine Portuguese soaps and beautifully-packaged tinned sardines. Junk stalls in the Estrela park yield some irresistibly touching, framed black-and-white family photographs from the 1930s, costing a few euros each. Exploring the new waterfront design area, Santos, provides a satisfying few hours.

Back on Rossio, at the the 120-year-old Chapelaria Azevedo Rua, I finger a handmade man's fedora for £57 – the double of one I swear I saw on Jermyn Street at £120. I postpone checking out handmade riding boots at Vitorino de Sousa on Rua dos Correeiros. And it is just as well that, before I hit the antique shops of Rua de São Bento, I meet the art-restorer owner of the new Palacete Chafariz del Rei boutique hotel, a 1906 mansion he renovated. "Lisbon has great antique stores," he says, "but so does Oporto – and 50 per cent cheaper." So it's advisable to take a large suitcase there? "A van!" he says with a grin, and points to a beautiful 1920s leather sofa and chair bought for £170.

How to do it

When to go
Any time, but May is best: it's not too hot, the purple jacaranda is in blossom, and you can take a 30-minute train ride to the beaches at Cascais – home now to the Casa das Histórias, showing the surrealist work of Portugal's brilliant Paula Rego. Bear in mind that Sunday is quiet; only museums open.

Where to stay
On the outskirts, the Lapa Palace and Pestana Palace hotels are very grand, but all the chic new spots are central: LX Boutique, Inspira Santa Marta and, just off Rossio, the Altis Avenida (00 351 29 172 4307,; rooms from £115), with young staff, black-carpeted rooms, a spa, and a seventh-floor roof terrace brasserie. For more information, see and

What to do
Pack flat shoes: you will walk a lot. On arrival, get the Convida Lisboa shopping guides, free at all hotels, and a three-day Lisboa Card (£28) for the trams, Metro and buses. In bustling Baixa, see the new Mude design museum (; in Chiado, old shops; in Principe Real, new design stores, cool cafés such as Orpheu, and boutiques such as Kolovrat ( at Rua Dom Pedro V 79, for witty printed silk scarves and spider-web silver necklaces costing £330. Go to Bairro Alto at night, for the bars, and medieval Alfama for almost hilariously mournful fado. Hottest area: waterfront, ex-industrial Santos, buzzing with lifestyle stores, bars and restaurants; see LX Factory ( and Ler (

Where to eat and drink
Have cocktails at new, glass-walled Le Chat (00 351 91 779 7155) at Jardim 9 de Abril. Have dinner at rough-chic 560 (00 351 21 346 8317, at Rua das Gáveas 78: wild mushrooms in Azores cheese, swordfish with banana, then pineapple carpaccio with coriander sauce. Finish at the new Sol e Pesca bar (00 351 21 346 7203) at Rua Nova do Carvalho 44.

Art-deco and midcentury styles offer endless possibilities for manufacturers seeking to re-energize and refine what "modern" means today in home furnishings. Stainless steel, chrome, acrylic and lots and lots of lacquer are the hallmarks of these reborn looks, which were everywhere at the Spring International Home Furnishings Market.

Lexington Home Brands introduced the deco-styled Aquarius Collection, which featured some stunning lacquer pieces in aquamarine, cloud white and Mandarin red.

Century Furniture, which is celebrating 65 years in the business, relaunched its Chin Hua Collection. The first Chin Hua was introduced in 1975, riding the tsunami of interest in all things Chinese after President Richard Nixon normalized relations with that country. The new collection adds rich veneers such as malachite, sapphire and garnet and new materials including stainless steel and acrylic.

"Lacquer finishes have become a very important trend in the home-furnishings category," said Comer Wear, whose grandfather started Century Furniture. "The high-sheen nature of lacquer coupled with metal accents creates a sleek transitional look that is fun yet very sophisticated. It's like a gemstone set in platinum or sterling." And likely enough to make your neighbors covet your cabinet.

Lee Industries was no exception to the trend. However, its designers looked to clear acrylic to update a hide-and-hair bench with a button-tufted zebra pattern. "The clear acrylic legs are an instant update," noted one admiring buyer. Also showing off their acrylic legs were Century and Lilly Pulitzer, which used them on benches as well.

Nobody understands the "Mad Men" decade better than Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams. The designers' Caffery dining table in oak and stainless steel and Gage upholstered dining chairs with stainless-steel frames are all about shaken, not stirred. Looking glamorous in high-gloss white lacquer with drawer interiors painted red was the company's Westwood Collection. It is trimmed in solid open-grain ash in an ebony finish for a striking contrast.

For a cool addition to any midcentury motif there is Tozai Home's Starburst mirror done with No. 2 pencils by Dransfield and Ross.

Going deco delicious were the Keno Bros., who are known for the way they bring out the beauty of wood in their products. The streamlined Chic tray table uses maple and louro preto veneers trimmed with stainless steel. Their Dual Curves accent table sits on gleaming steel legs with a top crafted from rosewood veneers and outlined in steel.

Bungalow 5 used marble tops and nickel-plated hardware on a variety of new lacquer chests. Though shown on the floor in black or white, they also come in red, orange, Kelly green and aqua lacquer finishes. Not to miss out on the great polished steel rush, Bungalow 5 showed its upholstered Lever lounge chair floating on a flat stainless-steel frame in vintage brown leather.

One who bucked the sleek trend was Maria Yee, preferring metal with an industrial look. Hot rolled steel is the focus of her coffee table.

"I really liked the natural design created on the steel by the cooling process," the designer said. The table is trimmed in environmentally friendly Nordic pine.

But Yee was in the minority when it came to shiny vs. matte metal. Polished stainless was a 3-to-1 favorite among manufacturers like Bernhardt Interiors, which used it on the curved chrome arms of its Markham lounge chair in cream leather and as the base for many other tables, including the petrified wood drinks table, the Henley teak-topped table, the cagelike base of the Orly occasional table and the reflective metal covering the Bolton nightstand, which featured an avocado-colored interior. The frame of the Jace club chair upholstered in a persimmon fabric was also polished stainless.

Like a form of alchemy, stainless steel, lacquer finishes and acrylics are transforming traditional silhouettes into fresh products for many furniture makers.
