Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Theres a new trend among the young designers and decorators of Paris: an embracing of an aesthetic called fait main. Literally, this means “made by hand,” but in this case it includes not only new items fashioned by hand but vintage objects and found objects that are valued as they are, or that may have been reworked. What unites them is the “handprint” of a talented creator.

Stylist Pia Jane Bijkerk has discovered more than fifty places-organized into walks-that embody this style. Some are shops owned by professional chineurs, people who hunt out objects sought after by interior decorators, architects, and stylists. Other places arent really shops but primarily studios, where, if you stop by, you can purchase something directly from the artist. Youll find a designer who makes glass jewelry; a couturier who sells fabric remainders, a few garments, and handwoven scarves; one boutique set up like a home, where reworked vintage housewares are displayed. Another place offers hand-knit baby clothes, another reworked antique French linens.

Also included are nearby cafés, bakeries, cheese shops, and tearooms with artisanal foods that reflect the spirit of “made by hand.” This is a book for all lovers of design and decorating.
