My Favorite Things

When Camille Vergnes isn’t at work in her Vienna Secession-laden Marais apartment, the Toulouse-raised interior designer can be found scouring French auction houses and flea markets for standout accents from the 1920s and vintage sartorial thrills alike. Here, Vergnes shares the pieces—both old and new—that she can’t live without

Sophie Buhai


Gold Classic Circle Bracelet

“An instant classic. It’s elegant and bold with an organic shape. I love to wear it alone or mixed with another brass or wooden bangle in the summer.”

Peacock Alley

From $160.00

Soprano Stripe Sateen Fitted Sheet

“I love subtle ivory striped sheets for a hotel look.”



Aquarelle One-Piece Swimsuit

“The quality of Eres’s swimwear is beyond—you can’t wear anything else after trying one. It’s the best investment.”

Diptyque Paris


Pomander Candle

“Smells are very strongly attached to memories for me. I now associate this candle with Biarritz as it is the first one I bought for my house there.”

Yves Saint Laurent


Vintage Belt

“I love everything that involves passementerie and tassels. It’s like disguising myself as a chic curtain—with vintage YSL.”

Liberty & Co.


Egyptian Revival Dark Maple Thebes Stool

“An iconic stool… Originally designed in ancient Egypt and reinterpreted by famous designers several times over the two last centuries, it can be incorporated into any interior style.”

Nancy Cunard


Selected Poems

“Nancy Cunard, the rich heiress of the famous Cunard Line, was an important avant-garde character. I just discovered that she wrote poetry and am excited to read this book this summer.”

Jean-Michel Franck


1930s Straw Marquetry Box

“I love vintage straw marquetry—a simple, natural material that can be turned into a very chic decorative element. Jean-Michel Frank’s boxes are very appealing.”

Louis Jadot


Puligny-Montrachet Les Referts Premier Cru 2020

“All of my favorite wines come from the Burgundy region… A Chassagne-Montrachet or a buttery Meursault shared with friends makes me the happiest.”

The Row


Black Evy Double Breasted Wool and Mohair Blend Coat

“A long tailored black jacket is the chicest alternative to a trench. It’s nice worn open with an outfit or closed as a dress. It is a versatile classic.”
