About


L’Atelier du Pays, was inspired by the country and artisan workshops, and markets that I have explored in Europe. Over the past 10 years I have been fortunate to have had the opportunity to experience the textures and flavours of everyday life in Europe. Switzerland, which became my home, is a hop, skip and jump away from those destinations that I dearly love in France, Italy, Germany, Austria and beyond… 

When I travel, regardless of the destination, I want to absorb as much about the people, their history and culture as I can, to savour the food, the local wines and I love to shop.  And when I shop, it’s generally for my home, making my home a mosaic of my travels and experiences.

L’Atelier du Pays, a country workshop, is inspired by my time in France. It was created to bring these unique finds and creations to you. Our focus is to offer you contemporary linens, unique tableware and home décor from Europe. We are located in the historical town of Ridgeway, a treasure, on the shores of Lake Erie.

How do we choose the products for our shop?  We search out those items for the home, which we love, and feel can offer you practical everyday luxury.  We believe that when you decorate you should surround myself with everything you love, colours, textures, treasures, memories, aspirations and whimsy.  And if you take these ingredients, and stir in imagination, rearrange it a bit, and tweak it from time to time, that it will grow and evolve with you and your family.

We look forward to welcoming you to our shop!
