Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche

Widely credited as the first department store in the world, Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche opened in 1852, and a visit to the store is just as exciting today as it was then. The reason is that founders Aristide and Marguerite Boucicaut insisted on a store that “would thrill all the senses.” That goal was ultimately achieved by architect Louis-Charles Boileau and engineer Gustave Eiffel. Then as now, creations exclusive to the store (now owned by LVMH) stand alongside a curated selection of beautiful objects from all over the world that surprise and delight the senses.
