French country, French chic, French vintage… everyone loves all things stylistically French, but many coveted items and brands are only available in France. Lucky for us, it’s the age of the internet. For when you can’t make it to the country itself, bring touches of France into your life and home by paying a visit to one, or more, online French boutiques.
Read on for a few of our favorite online French boutiques.
The French Muse
In 2010, Ruth swapped a busy life in the cinema industry for one with her family in Provence. Today, she travels around France in search of handmade treasures made from noble materials and ancient techniques. Her online boutique—The French Muse—offers a tantalizing selection of antique linens, jacquard ribbons, trims, lace, passementerie, millinery embellishments, vintage silks and more. You can even commission her to source items for you personally—reach out here.
Wonder where she got her impeccable taste? Ruth is part of a celebrated silk family behind the heritage ribbon company, Julien Faure. If you want to know more, subscribe to MFCH Magazine—we profile her for our upcoming Sept/Oct 2020 issue!
Vivi et Margot
Charlotte launched Vivi et Margot—a curated collection of beautiful French-inspired homewares and lifestyle goods—in 2015. On offer? Lovely home decor, traditional kitchen accessories, French-made soaps, textiles, linen and more. Her most popular product is the panier du marché français (or “the French market basket”). In addition to her online boutique, Charlotte also hosts brick and mortar pop-up shops across the United States.
Inspired by her mother and her love of France and flowers, Sandra founded her Parisian-inspired floral, garden and home online boutique, Les Fleurs, in Andover, Massachusetts. Among the categories offered are French antiques, kitchen goods, gardening supplies, Provencal bath & body, books, candles, diffusers and more. A click of a button, and they’re yours.
Dreamy Whites Atelier
Treat your eyes to a French decor dream. You may recognize the Instagram, Dreamy Whites Lifestyle, but you may not know about their online boutique—Dreamy Whites Atelier. Offering self-described French farmhouse finds, they offer breadboards, baskets, stationery, linens, paintings, stoneware and more. Everything is more or less—as its name would suggest—in a dreamy, white and neutral color palette and is styled and photographed gorgeously. It’s as good for inspiration as it for snagging items of your own.

Recently launched, the MFCH Boutique offers individual access to some of the most popular, unique and tried-and-true past subscription box inclusions.
