Stepping into John Derian's store, you may well feel that you have left the city and are in an antique shop on the rue St. Paul. And then comes another sensation: you want to move in. The cozy little home-accessories shop is filled with handmade knickknacks. Derian makes the découpage glassware (paperweights, trays and dishes, lamps, and so on); the rest is the fruit of his frequent scouting trips to France and beyond. There are collages and woodblock prints by Hugo Guinness, vintage Pakistani quilts, Moroccan lanterns and leather poufs, and hand-stitched French bedding. This extremely charming home-décor and knickknack shop also has French and American antiques, new luxury linens, accent furniture from around the world, and a nice selection of Derian's own découpage glassware.
A must-register destination for those who favor luxe goods scored from Paris flea markets, with finds such as John Robshaw bedding and platters designed by Derian himself.
