Bienvenue à Paris! A guide to the people and parties at Déco Off 2020

Kickstart your Paris planning with this guide to the after-hours goings-on at Déco Off, which runs January 16 to 20. Don’t forget to bookmark this story: We’ll continue to add more pop-ups and events, new introductions, tours and experiences as Paris Design Week approaches.

Although the show’s hours are 9:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.—and a late night (until 10:30 p.m.) on Saturday—many showrooms set their own schedule. For help finding your favorite brands, here’s a directory of who’s popping up in the City of Light next week.

And if you need help going back and forth between the Left Bank and Right Bank, Déco Off is offering a new shuttle service in partnership with Renault this year, with stops in Place des Petits-Pères and Place Saint-Germain-des-Prés.
