Former flower caterers to Chanel, this outsize florist’s and homeware boutique brims with chic potential gifts.
Trousselier, a quaint 650-square-metre boutique near the Printemps department store, has been creating floral art and selling home decoration on this site since 1877. You may recognise the name, as it was made famous by Chanel, for whom it used to grow carnelias.
The boutique is divided into two parts. Walking into the first is like stepping into the Garden of Eden with its large space entirely dedicated to artificial flowers. Here, you’ll discover cascades of silk wisteria, wedding bouquets, cornflower bridesmaid crowns and even framed floral arrangements on the walls. This stuff is expensive, so it’s best to look and not touch.
We emerge out the other side of this floral paradise into a completely different, much more accessible space. This room is where you can pick up an eclectic range of items to decorate the home, and at pleasing prices to boot (six glasses are €5, a cute chick eggcup €3, a velvet jewellery box €34).
