ENDORSEMENT FROM A MANHATTAN INTERIOR DESIGNER THROUGH INDAGARE, A LUXURY TRAVEL WEBSITE

“If you like the idea of shopping at Paris’s famous flea market but are intimidated by the negotiating, navigating or shipping, then contact a pro to help you with all of the above. The New York decorator who brought Riad to our attention was able to accomplish in three hours with him what would have taken her days on her own. ‘He scouted things out for me first and sent photos,’ she said, ‘so we could hit the best places, and then he handles the shipping. I bought everything I wanted for clients and for my shop and still made my lunch reservation at L’Ami Louis.’ Now that’s a successful shopping morning.”
