About Chez Vous

Captivated by decorative flourishes discovered while wheeling their toddlers’ strollers through European villages, architect Karen Dunning and husband Lee founded Chez Vous in 1996 to bring a bit of that aesthetic to American homes. Handpicked offerings range from fun and funky to lovely and semi-precious. Chez Vous definitely doesn’t take itself too seriously. This down-to-earth approach to hunting and gathering decorative treasures results in incredible finds at incredible prices.
