Home Autour du Monde at 8, rue des Francs Bourgeois. Metro: Saint-Paul
Home Autour du Monde is a lifestyle shop in the Marais that has it all--urban fashion and modern home goods. 

Designer Serge Bensimon's boutique houses fresh home and fashion that isn't too trendy or sophisticated. 

The modern aesthetics of the store complements the changing inventory of modern crafts, rugs, lighting, tableware, bedding, jewelry, decorative objects, as well as Bensimon's clothing line for men and women.  

The shop is a mix of home and fashion.
The two-level shop showcases Bensimon's clothing and tableware. The cozy, vaulted basement displays most of the store's home collection. 

There is something here for any budget. Pick-up a set of monogrammed mugs for $18 apiece or a scented candle from Autour du Monde's line of 12 scents for $25.

Bensimon's sweaters and tops are on the high-end, but the B. Team line is a bit more affordable with jackets starting at $180.

Excellent info! I was the original Editor in Chief of Country Living Magazine....Marylou Krajci told me to see your blog because I'm going to be in Paris for Thanksgiving week. I thought I knew every market in Paris...but I'm going to follow your advice and peek into some you've mentioned. Would also be interested in great, inexpensive restaurants. We are staying the the Hotel Des Grandes Ecoles...just behind the Pantheon. Good luck to you in your studies....
