A love affair with French culture was established in his college years while studying at the Sorbonne. That experience made a lasting impact, and fueled a passion for Paris that has followed him throughout his life and career. Eric has made beauty his muse. Dealing in art, antiques and representing the French range manufacturer La Cornue, has kept him close to all things exquisitely French.

Eric’s design acumen propels his natural ability to uncover the next great resource and emerging trend. Eric’s frequent visits to Paris with his clientele have provided a solid foundation of sources to draw from. His clients remark that his warmth, sense of humor and graciousness allowed them to simply show up and enjoy themselves. His first-hand knowledge of Paris helped lead them to memories that last a lifetime.

Patrick Welch
