Paris - Couleurs de Fermob

My husband is one of those certain someone's (but aren't all guys?) who are inclined to recline.  Accordingly he has developed a fervent attachment to a certain style of Fermob chair.  When we first got to Luxembourg Gardens during this last visit, he immediately knew what he was after and went straight for one of them to have a nap in.  This post is the record of our accidental pilgrimage to Mr. Paradis' new-found spiritual home.  Fermob - 81 Avenue Ledru Rollin, 75012 Paris.

The colors were irresistible.

Here is the two-seater version of his holy grail.  Somehow I think it would be less comfortable if we both sat in it!

Making himself perfectly at home.........

It was a gray rainy day in Paris when these pictures were taken but look how sunny they make it look!

Remember this classic from all the impressionist paintings?

You could stick to the standard Luxembourg style bench or get very daring

with the space-aged designey mid-century version.

Hated to leave them behind!  So far we have not found any retailer near Los Angeles who carries the complete line.  Wholesale only.  (Sad face.)  Does this mean we have to open our own shop?  Hmmmmm!

   No, I'm not being paid by this company to get you to buy their products!  I'm just another one of those people who wants to live a Parisian-styled life!


  1. Hmm, very comfy looking indeed, and what a great range of colours!
    Glad to hear you had such a wonderful time away. I could do with one of those raspberry/rose/lychee macarons right about now :)

  2. oh i love those chairs at jardin du luxembourg!! they're so comfy, if i hadn't been keeping an eye on my boys, i could've easily had a sleep!

  3. Ohhh, I sat in chairs like that in Paris too! :-) Love them! :-)

  4. Hard to decide which one I would like really...all fabulous! and the colours!
