Designer's Flea Market (Le Puces du Design)
If you think Flea Markets are nothing but a huge garage sale you would have been surprised to visit the latest edition of Les Puces du Design (the designer's flea market) that took place last week-end in the Montorgueil quarter (2nd arrondissement). Among other stuff my eyes got mainly caught by the furniture of the 70s : the "Lounge Chair" designed by Eames, the "Ant Chair" designed by Jacobsen, and, of course, the "Tulip" tables and chairs signed by Saarinen! But in the end I chose to photograph this unforgettable "shoe screen" (see another view here) and this fish bowl.
