Atelier Choux is the new up-and coming boutique store for all essential baby products and clothes for children under 3 years old. The boutique is conveniently located behind the Saint-Michel fountain in Paris. Atelier Choux was founded in 2016 by a French-American couple who have an interest in interior design. They collaborated with Mattias Adolfsson, a Swedish artist, to create unique and high quality baby products. Their simplistic and original designs inspired by Paris' beautiful architecture and monuments makes any item from here a "must have" for any child you know.

Once you enter the shop, you can immediately see the French inspiration. The clean white walls with intricate pastel colored designs that include animals and frames exemplify the Atelier Choux identity. The elegant chandelier was bought in Murano, Italy which adds to the luxurious boutique shopping experience.
Prior to January 2019, all of the items were only available online, but now you can have a personal experience and find all of their collections in their first shop.
The signature prints of Atelier choux contain elegance and style at the same time.

There are many different designs for bodysuits, and they all have conveniently located buttons for an easy diaper change. Bodysuits and playsuits are unisex and there is also a dress collection for baby girls.
