One of the city's best addresses for 1930s to '50s furniture is Patrick Fourtin, whose spare, all-white gallery hides in the Place de Valois, a tiny square just east of the Palais Royal. On a recent visit we found a pair of Marjorelle armchairs, which had the streamlining that's characteristic of the 1930s even though they were produced at the turn of the century, and a very rare and robust Boisseau table from the 1920s. A place where dealers themselves come to buy. 6 Place de Valois; 33-1-42-60-12-63.
