English designer Paul Smith has a collection of the
most fabulously "accessorated" stores 
through-out the world!!!

Last year I stumbled upon my current favorite,
possibly the smallest & most unusual,
Tourrette, located at 70 Rue de Grenelle, Paris!!!

According to Smith, "The store dates back to the Thirties
when La Tourrette was opened by Monsieur Tourrette 
as a "Bougnat";
the left side of the shop selling coal, 
the right side selling wine,
supplies considered to be the staples of a Parisian winter."

Applying a universal design philosophy to all of his shops,
his design team has re-invented the space, 
while still being "sympathetic 
to it's history & retaining its identity."

The store has not changed either inside or out ...
the floors, the walls, the details,
& the original signage remain in place, 
with the addition of "vintage inspired" fixtures.

Smith's stores are all "accessoration's supreme"!!!

Currently this is my favorite ......
but who know's what's next in the world of
