If you haven't heard of Parisian concept boutique Merci, then it should go on your must-see list for your next trip to the City of Lights. Opened in 2009, the multi-level space in the Marais offers clothing from up-and-coming designers, home goods, and a variety of trinkets you can actually afford (the small initial medallions on ribbon are a fan favorite).
But here's the biggest reason why you should book a flight: Merci's latest in-house collection, called La Nouvelle Table, includes pretty much the chicest school cafeteria lunch trays we've ever seen. The line is simple and practical, but remains visually stunning — a stellar combo.
La Nouvelle Table is Merci's very first crockery collection in collaboration with the home line Serax. The bento box-like pieces all fit together perfectly on a single tray — it's just up to you to figure out which configuration pleases you most.
