Décor de France opened its doors July 1, 2001 after much soul searching, planning, and of course shopping. We directly import the majority of our inventory from the south of France, so we go there at least once a year to shop. We drive many miles across the south of France visiting the different artists we currently work with to see their new creations and make orders. They are wonderful people with incredible talents, and watching them work is great fun. We try very hard to carry pottery and other art that is unique and not likely to be seen other places in the United States. We shop mainly in smaller villages and we’re always looking for new items to add, as well as for those things our customers have requested.
Longboat Key with its European atmosphere is a perfect location for Décor de France as was on St. Armands Circle for the past 14 years. And we’re very pleased to hear so many of our customers say as they walk in our door, “I feel just like I’m in Provence”. But we’re even more pleased when we heard our favorite words, “This is the nicest shop on the Circle”.
We hope you enjoy browsing our website and please feel free to contact us with any questions. And if you are in the Sarasota area, be sure to drop by for a little dose of Provence.
