Our owner loves France and goes to Paris regularly to see friends and

keep up on what's going on. (She was even featured in a radio show on

France Culture in spring 2019!)

The products with the "French Style" icon share the latest ideas

and special styles with you. Although made in Seattle, they are inspired

by a long-term friendship, l’amitié franco-américaine!  

French style items include:

a) Frankenstein books, especially the one in French translation!  

See book page for details and special package deals!

 

b) Literary pillow: The Ladies’ Paradise (inspired by Zola's novel, 

Au bonheur des damesSee Literary pillow page for details.

 

c) The “Frenchie pillow” 

The limited edition “Frenchie” pillow has a seaside motif. It is made of cotton,

made in France, in bright yellow, blue, and white. The pillow back resembles a

patchwork quilt (with a cellphone pocket of course), and the pillow front has

quaint scenes in blue and white of children on the beach with captions

in French. (Here are the translations, just in case.)

« Martin aime aller à la pêche et remplir son panier.»

Martin likes to go fishing and fill up his basket.

« La mer est belle, le sable est frais.» The sea is beautiful, the sand is cool.

« Malo regarde les voiliers avec sa lunette.» Malo watches the sailboats with his telescope.

« Le phare, de ses rochers, domine la baie.» The lighthouse, from its rock, looks over the bay.

Frenchie pillow: $24.99

d) "Paris in Revolt / Paris révolutionnaire." Inspired by recent events,

this pillow features a thin gold-framed sunset skyline, placed onto worn jeans fabric. The slim gold boundary between the famous city--from the Eiffel Tower

to the Arc de Triomphe--and the rough fabric is meant to remind us of how the sans-culottes forced France out of feudalism into democracy back in 1789. Pillow backs are made of neon yellow utility fabric with white cotton 

stripes, evoking the Gilets jaunes or Yellow Vest protesters of 2018-19.

The cellphone pocket is trimmed in pink cotton with a portrait of a French

queen who looks on the scene with a wry gaze. Hope for the republic 

is symbolized by the tricolor flag patch stitched on the pocket.

The message is: "Des sans-culottes aux gilets jaunes, Paris tente

la révolution."  (From the sans culottes of 1789 to the Yellow Vests

of 2019, Paris tempts revolution.)
