Antique dealer, interior designer, artist—Alexandra Zeana is all of these things, and her tiny shop in the 6th is a study in design savvy.
A vitrine displaying handsome jewelry—bold pendants, colorful rings, and unconventional silver bracelets, most made in France—caught my eye from the narrow, cobblestoned rue de l’Echaudé.
Entering the boutique, I found myself in an inspired French country house/marché des puces. More bijoux were complemented by scarves and assorted linens, a wire dressmaker’s model, plant stands, a lovely bird cage, small wooden cabinets, bibelots, sculptures, and objets.
The tasteful and eclectic arrangement layers color, texture and romance, and Mme Zeana can acquaint you with the history of each piece.
This is just the place to find an original accessory for your home or yourself, and to ponder the fabulous French art of presentation.
