April in Paris? You simply must visit the ‘zoo’ at Deyrolle Taxidermy Shop.
Some home accents never go out of style: like a tiger rug or a mounted yak head! Since 1831, this legendary gallery and curio shop has been stuffing and hunting down exotic creatures for the discriminating taxidermy palate.
Frankly, they make the Museum of Natural History look like a carnie sideshow. In case you didn’t notice, reality-TV has caught on to the craft of taxidermy. But nobody does it better, or more realistic, or more abundantly, than Deyrolle, on 46 Rue Bac, from zoology to entomology finds. And if you’re looking for gigantic shark jaws, OR delicate botanical prints, this is the place.
