Just around the corner from Avenue Montaigne, this popular source for embroidered fine linens made in France offers its wares at a third of the price of similar Paris retailers. An ideal stop-in for tasteful wedding gifts, Nouez-Moi sells its sought-after linens internationally (orders are accepted in-store or by phone) and ships regularly to the United States. For a personal touch, names or initials may be embroidered by request on linens and bath towels. King-sized sheet and pillowcase sets average around 300 francs, and Nouez-Moi also offers upscale housewares.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
