About La Maison Bleue

Inspiration and Passion

La Maison Bleue, was founded in May 2005 by Jennie Ayres, a self-confessed Francophile! Having been inspired by the quality of French life since visiting France and living with a French family as a child. In August 2015 the shop was taken over by Julie Smelt who has always had a passion for interior design and home accessories a chance meeting with Jennie at a charity coffee morning and the rest is history!


Despite the proximity of our French neighbour, it is still difficult to find authentic French interior design products in the UK and much time and effort has been made to seek out quality products, many traditionally handcrafted, that have been chosen to inspire you and your friends with a passion for French style.

Dedication to Customer Satisfaction

Equal to our customers' delight with the quality of the products, is the desire to ensure that all our customers are more than satisfied with our customer service. We welcome any feedback that you may have on any aspects of La Maison Bleue.
