A cross between an interior design shop and a tarted-up warehouse, Compagnie opens its doors on Saturdays to punters looking for a spot of wildlife to spice up their living rooms. Conceived by architect Jean-François Bellemère, the venue is home to all manner of sleek, functional furniture designed with the integration of plants into the home in mind – you'll find everything from large bookshelves to sofas with inbuilt plant pots (€190-250). The prevalence of people from the service industry – chiefly hoteliers and restaurant owners – among the clients speaks of the quality of the products, though the absence of plants for sale feels like a missed opportunity. For anyone looking for a smarter, more eco-friendly version of IKEA, however, this place is manna from heaven.
