What to do during Paris Design Week this January

It’s Paris Design Week and there are countless things to do, places to eat and sights to see in between official trips to Maison et Object or Paris Déco Off. If you come all this way, it would be criminal not to soak up all the inspiration this city offers. (However, truth be told, you will be inspired just walking down the street or cutting across a park to your appointments). 






2 Rue Royale, 75008 Paris

After you walk through the fairly new(ish) Hotel de la Marine museum, walk across the courtyard for lunch or dinner at Mimosa, a Mediterranean-inspired restaurant by Jean-François Piège with interiors to die for.

Le Square Trousseau 

1 rue Antoine Vollon, 75012 Paris

10 Rue Agrippa d’Aubigné, 75004 PARIS

This restaurant just opened up last Fall in the new SO/ hotel and has views to die for. It's a spectacular spot for a full meal or just a drink in the bar.
