Time Out NY No matter that your address lies within the five boroughs instead of an arrondissement. Thanks to the Paris Apartment, decorator Claudine Strasser's boudoirish home furnishings boutique, Gallic-style glamour is within reach. The pint-size East Village shop stocks signature siren-chic antiques, along with Strasser's line of made-to-order designs. Conjuring atmospheric inspiration from 1930s films like Greta Garbo's Camille, the shop resembles a glam ladies' salon, filled with vintage 1930s French Lucite lamps ($450 a pair) and silver vanity trays ($150), culled from Parisian flea markets and New Jersey estate auctions alike. In addition to producing custom pieces, such as mirrored vanities ($4,995) and satin-tufted chaises ($2,800), Strasser also offers personal home consultations as well as private shopping trips to Paris--in case you're going for true French authenticity.
