Off the Beaten Path to Paris Garden Shop

September 18, 2011 by


Cool idea: love the geometric pattern of the tiles on planted wall in the shop’s parking area.

When I am in a foreign city, I really  like do as the locals do.  So when I was in Paris last week, I ventured off the beaten track completely removed from the tourist spots to visit one of my favorite garden shops, Sabz. It’s lots of fun to wander around as the store displays much of its stock on a vast outdoor patio filled with pots and raised beds of grasses and other low-maintenance plants.

The shop is a bit hidden within the interior courtyard of a residential building, so I walked right by it at first.

At Sabz, you will find everything under the sun for the both the outdoor living room and the indoor garden room. On display are numerous vertical garden products perfect for interior or exterior, including Vincent Vandenbrouck’s Cloison Etcetera, above, hanging shelves of terracotta pots that sit securely between brushed aluminium tubes suspended by wire cables.

Although I couldn’t really schlep much of anything back with me, I was a able to pick up two delicate porcelain votive holders, a gift for the friend who graciously loaned me her apartment–they will go on her terrace’s bistro table. But what I really pricked up was lots of inspiration and an up-close view of some of the best of European outdoor and garden product design which I had previously seen only online.
