A 1920s guidebook to the antique dealers and modern decorators working in Paris. Therese and Louise Bonney were two American sisters who resided in the French capital in the 1920s and early 30s. The guidebook offers advice on buying both antique and modern furniture. It includes a directory of the best dealers and decorators, including Adnet, Chareau, Dominique, Jourdain, Leleu, Frank and Ruhlmann. The sisters' other book A Shopping Guide to Paris, on which this volume is probably based, was published in the same year.
