When an escape to Paris isn’t feeling like it’s on the horizon this year – or even next – then a little virtual travel is perhaps the next best thing. That goes for the retail therapy that would usually accompany a holiday to such a destination too. Can’t currently stroll The Champs-Élysées, roam Rue Saint-Honoré or browse Le Bon Marché? Don’t despair. Parisian tastemaker and celebrated interior designer Pierre Yovanovitch has unveiled a new online store and we’re spying several items from afar that are worthy of adding to cart tout de suite.
See below for our top 10 picks.
News of the online store comes after Pierre recently announced the launch of his very own range of furniture and accessories. Titled Pierre Yovanovitch Mobilier (stylised as PYMO), the new brand brings to market 45 pieces of lighting, seating and accessories, each bearing the hallmarks of the designer’s playful yet sophisticated style. The complete PYMO offering is now viewable online – alongside the new e-store – while Pierre has also opened the doors to a bricks-and-mortar boutique in his beloved Paris.
Located on 6 rue Beauregard, 75002, Paris, the new store (pictured below among a selection of wares on offer) is open by appointment from Monday to Saturday, between 10am and 6pm.
The launch of Pierre’s PYMO label was marked in early 2021 with a temporary installation at the 17th-century Académie d’Architecture building in Paris and a photoshoot at the magnificent Château de Volonne – a landmark residence close to Pierre’s home in southeastern France. Take a look.
Also in Paris, style set Atelieramo has designed the private shopping suites of the luxurious La Samaritaine department store. Catch up on more architecture, art and design highlights. Plus, subscribe to receive the Daily Architecture News e-letter direct to your inbox.
