Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

December 23rd, 2012

Galeries Lafayette, the fashionable department store in Paris started out with humble beginnings in 1895.   A year later, the owners acquired the property it occupies now and hired architect Georges Chedanne to design the store at the current Haussmann location, where the opulent Art Nouveau glass dome and staircases were finished in 1912.

This 10-story flagship store in the 9th arrondissement is always decked out for the Holidays.   We took our photo of the giant Christmas tree, while standing on the first floor in the stunning atrium under the stained glass dome.

Film Crew in Burbank Ranch Neighborhood
