Hello, my name is Allison Grant, I’m English and I’ve been living in Paris for 15 years now with my husband and four children. I opened the Collection interiors shop in 2003.

I’m very passionate about design and craft and the overlap between the two. I’m also a great believer that your home and the things you live with can have a huge influence on how you feel every day.

I believe its important to buy sensibly too; more and more  I try to think carefully before making purchases  for my own home and I try to apply similar rules for the products sourced for the shop. I want our customers to buy products that are not only beautiful and functional, but they need to last too. I do believe that if we buy well, then we can educate our children to do the same.

I love products with a story behind them and I can tell you the stories behind nearly all the products we have. In this blog I’m trying to do the same thing, so I hope you enjoy it.
