About Us
Chantal Couturier was born and raised in Lyon, France. Her parents' house was filled with fabulous antiques and she developed at an early age a taste for beauty and quality...
She left the Rhône Valley and moved to the Bay Area in 1998, launching Place Bellecour on line in 2003. She opened her first shop in Mountain View in 2004 and since then developed her business working either alone or in collectives in different locations.
Chantal’s vision of a home is a protective nest where you can reload and find comfort. She loves light, open space, and a warm feel she achieves by mixing antique and modern, and never overcrowding a room.
Chantal picks in Europe most of the art, antique and vintage furniture, lighting fixtures and other home accessories she showcases. She also knows to appreciate gorgeous pieces from other continents and she partners with a local dealer of Asian artifacts. Besides her collection for the house, she also displays a few unique one of a kind jewelry.
