Walking Around, Paris: 155 reviews and 439 photos
If you happen to stroll rue de Paradis (the "crokery and china" street of Paris), you may notice, among the surronding non descript buildings, a very special looking house : the Galerie Paradis
Built in 1900 by Jacottin, it was initially the Ceramic fabricant Boulenger's main store (the factory was located in Choisy le Roi).
The facade looks like an italian theatre and the walls are decorated with pictures made out of ceramics.
The designs are from Arnoux and Guidetti who were also the Maison Boulenger's main designers.
From 1978 to 1991, the house used to host the Musee de l'Affiche et de la Publicite now situated in the Louvre (in the Pavillon de Marsan).
If you are lucky enough, you can enter the courtyard and have a closer look (or else, just catch a glimpse though the railings).
