Claudia Strasser, founder of The Paris Apartment, launched her career in 1993 with a boutique in NYC’s East Village filled with French boudoir furniture, accessories, and flea-market finds that she reincarnated into sparkling treasures. In 1995, she collaborated with publisher Judith Regan on The Paris Apartment: Romantic Decor on a Flea Market Budget. Today, among myriad charmed design missions, Claudia leads small groups on shopping adventures through her beloved Paris.
