Stationery retailer Papier D’Amour is a one-stop shop for your office, celebration or personal needs.

Owner Phoebe Gazal is a graphic designer by trade. She started the business in 1996 as a freelancer. She began by designing wedding invitations for friends and created a niche in stationery design and retail, growing Papier D’Amour to what it is today.

As well as its own range the store offers international brands such as Kate Spade New York, Elk Leather, Crown Mill and Rifle Paper Co. If you can’t find exactly what you need, head for the design office at the back for custom stationery, wedding invitations and birthday cards.

Apart from high-quality stationery, the store also stocks whimsical knick-knacks. There are Marshall speakers, Kewpie dolls, old-school snakes and ladders board games and anything else you might need for a celebration.

The shop’s look is inspired by a trip Gazal took to New York. The large, old-world-style windows are set into a dark, sleek casing with typographic lettering that hints at what’s inside. It’s a New York vibe with a hint of a Parisian papery.
