A door with two identical windows on either side, that’s a boutique. For our three founders who were experts on Art History , it’s also a diptyque, which in French is spelled ‘diptyque’.
The very first shop, located at 34 Boulevard Saint-Germain in Paris, opens onto the street like a two-part Italian Renaissance or Flemish master’s painting. They had found the ideal stage for their chic little bazaar of fascinating finds as well as the perfect name for it; diptyque.
At 34 Boulevard Saint-Germain in Paris, diptyque shook up a traditional Parisian neighborhood by creating a delightfully new and wonderous experience: a concept-store, or bazaar as it was called in years past. Everything, that’s exactly what they love and can’t be found anywhere else! Bistro sugar holders, Lorraine glassware, Indian incense burners, they exalt the beauty of everyday life and the work of master craftsmen.
Our founders’ creativity was fueled by their insatiable curiosity and the secret gardens they always kept in bloom.
