You won’t find La Trésorerie on any list of Paris concept stores, but it deserves a spot.
Two luminous floors of this beautifully curated hardware store near Canal St Martin are furnished with recycled and sustainably produced home decor, furniture, and kitchenware, much of it made in France.
There are oodles of textiles, from aprons, napkins and tea towels to pillow and duvet covers; tables set with delicious dinnerware; light fixtures that satisfy both form and function; great cutlery (with a marvelous assortment of spoons); everything you need for the bath except the sink and tub.
The furniture—dining and side tables, beds and futons—is wonderfully minimalist, and outfitted with linens that make you want to touch them.
The hardware section is both useful and smart, with small gadgets that make easy to pack gifts, and brooms, brushes, and floor mats. Locals buy their eco-friendly cleaning products here.
The vibe is zen-like, and the products useful, beautiful, and respectful of the environment. La Trésorerie’s concept is harmony. And without the hype and high prices of most concept stores, the idea of tranquility extends to the register.
