Love the Starbucks Paris mug, drinking a large home made
Caffe Latte :)
The coffee shop in Champs-Elysées, Paris isn't really in it's
own building, but rather in the middle of the mini-mall with
glass panes partitioning off the coffee shop from the rest of
the mall; it gives you a bit of a feeling like you're in
It was nice sitting there...
The French architects, Charles Lefebvre, Marcel Julien
and Louis Duhayon designed the 120 metres long, 15
metres wide, Arcades des Champs Elysées in a mixture of
Art Deco and neo-classical styles. Eight of the Scottish
granite columns came from the old Hôtel Dufayel, to which
were added eight more in red granite originally surmounted
by gold capitals. A facing of blonde and black marble
covers the walls.
The decoration inside the arcades was created by some of
the top craftsmen in their field – the wrought iron work by
René Gobert the stained glass by Fernand Jacoppozi and
the light fittings and shades by Ren´Lalique.
