When my email popped up saying Merci had launched it’s online store, the hellish tube ride to work quickly vanished from my mind. Instead, memories of my last trip to Paris came flooding back – to be specific, stumbling into Merci and quite truly believing I’d found heaven in a shop!

So much more than a shop, Merci has heart  –  and a very big one too – combining luxury consumerism and philanthropy by donating all profits to education and development projects in Madagascar. The owners simply wishing to pay it forward and say – “MERCI to life!”

While being French is almost a guaranteed pass on the style front, Merci could exist anywhere in the world and still take your breath away.

If like me, you don’t live a train ride away from Paris (just let me gloat!) then Merci online is a far more accessible option; opening up a world of linens, Merci medallions, ridiculously stylish plates and bowls, oh the list could go on!  Admittedly, it doesn’t quite capture the true amazingness of the Marais store, but it does give you a pretty good taster.

Love Jemmi x
