Claudia began her love affair with
Paris and her career in 1993 when she opened a shop in New
York City's East Village. In contrast to the dark
neighborhood, it flowed with French boudoir furniture and
accessories. She painted and repaired her flea market finds,
reincarnating them into the sparkling treasures.
She was approached by Judith Regan
to write a decorating book showcasing her style in 1995, and
together they published, ''The Paris Apartment, Romantic
Decor on a Flea Market Budget'.
Claudia continues to grow the
company by combining a fresh and eclectic mix of vintage,
French and Art Deco styles. The Paris Apartment was summed
up when called "playful, romantic and luxurious interiors"
Today Claudia travels to Paris
throughout the year, taking small groups shopping and
sharing her resources. She's working on books and articles,
designing the furniture line and pet decorating projects.
Ultimately, at the The Paris
Apartment, the mission is to deliver wonderful products that
will become heirlooms and create rooms that will hold
beautiful memories and reflect the individual's personal
Claudia is happy to exchange
information and ideas and believes that everyone will have
the home of their dreams no matter where or what size.
