Utrecht or Metz Chair by Gerrit Rietveld



And thanks to my visit to La Suite I now can share my own photos of a black leather with white stitches Utrecht or Metz Armchair by Dutch architect and furniture designer Gerrit Rietveld with you. It is much smaller than I had imagined. I love it!

When in Paris visit La Suite and Out Door

La Suite Front P1050241
Recently I was in Paris and came across two beautiful shops. La Suite and Out Door, dedicated to furniture design with mouth watering display of designer chairs and designer sofas for indoor and for outdoor use respectively. A must visit for chair aficionados! You can find them next to each other, very close to the BNF (National Library of France) at the border of the river Seine between Pont Tolbiac (Tolbiac Bridge) and Pont de Bercy (Bercy bridge) and if you are there I suggest you also take a look at the Bercy area architecture and the Bercy parc.

I asked and was gracefully permitted authority to make photos in the two shops. Some of those I’ll feature here.

Only Yesterday I discovered Suite New York…You can imagine I’m wondering whether there is a connection between the two or not….

Update November 2011:

It appears both websites have disappeared. Maybe the shops disappeared as well…
