Fauchon food shop by Christian Biecher, Paris

July 17th, 2011 by retail design blog

How could I talk about love and not talk about one of favorite loves? What’s that, you ask? You see, In addition to design, I’m all about Paris. I went a couple of years ago and fell in love (with the city) and I have been trying to get back every since. If I had the opportunity I would run off, live there and of course blog about my new adventure. As usual, while looking for all things Parisian, I stumbled upon the fabulously, sexy luxury food shop Fauchon. What better place to buy lovely pastries and confections for your Valentine?

Designed by architect/designer, Christian Biecher, the store has a bakery, a caviar bar, cafe and a wine tasting area called The Counter. With a mix of materials, including woods, metals for reflective high shine and some haute pink and polished finishes, Biecher has all the ingredients for any foodie’s gastronomic adventure.

But wouldn’t be great to have a beautiful Valentine’s day meal? Think about grabbing a meal at Fauchon’s chic restaurant with your sweetheart. A setting like this,in Paris no less, is enough to spur anyone’s romantic appetites. Well, at least mine…

By next Valentine’s Day, my plan is to have run off to Paris to share confectionery delights at Fauchon. I just have to see this place in person. Maybe I will see you there. In the meantime, going to run off and have tea and a chocolate croissant.

    This is the type of design Fauchon needs in all its future American retail outlets.
