PARIS BOUND: STYLEBEAT HEADS TO PARIS TO SCOUT TERRIFIC NEW TEXTILES FOR EDITOR AT LARGE

by Marisa Marcantonio

Tonight I head off to Paris to cover the textile and interior design show Deco Off, now in its 6th year, where I will be hosting on-air video segments for Editor at Large, Editor TV. I could not be more excited. The opportunity to see some of the most beautiful fabrics in the world launch in the city of light from the likes of Pierre Frey, Cowtan and Tout, Dedar is amazing. Europe is where trends emanate from and the cultural, social and creative vibe always leaves me feeling recharged and awe-struck. I re-arranged my schedule for this great experience, and it will involve a whirlwind tour, a stay in my favorite, the St. Germain neighborhood in the 6th, and lots of inspiration.  Since I have not been to Paris in some time, I welcome your suggestions of must-visit spots, new cafes or unusual finds. Thanks for the insights and I will come home buzzing with ideas and trends. A bientot, Paris.
