Café du Centre - les chaises



This is in Paris, I promise, but it just looks a bit too pristine and new.


What do you think?

Un peu trop sage pour Paris...

It looks delightful. And new. And Paris. Pourqoui pas?
But I think it would look nicer if there were some people, and some coffee cups, or wine glasses, or croissants. This picture looks much too sterile for lively, invigorating Paris.

Une photo prise peut-être un peu tôt dans la journée... tout le monde dort encore...peut-être!
Gros bisous.

I wouldn´t mind siting on one of these chairs, even if they are new ;-)
Love the colours of the chairs!

I'm sure I saw chairs like this in Paris Genie, even new they still have 'the Paris look'.. I didn't get a chance to comment yesterday, your man in the shadow, does look very intriguing, I was happy to see his hand was open and relaxed, so whoever he was he wasn't an 'uptight' mystery man haha!

très tôt le matin..? I never see scenes like this in Paris.. but then, I am not an early riser :-) Great picture though.
Glad you made it back home safely

They won't stay new and unoccupied very long..Come back at the end of summer, and they'll look veryyyy old! :o)

... that it must have been very early in the morning ... or a very cold day! ... and that the design is typical! :-)

I like! In Paris the chairs are always charming!

It's true - the cafe furniture looks a little to new but is it about the chairs or the view from them.

i too think that it must be very early morning! :-)

Very early, indeed! I am not so surprised by the new looking chairs as I am by the new looking tiles! This must have been a recent remodel. Love the colors -- especially the more muted blue! Glad you're home safe ( though quite delayed)!!!

Enjoy Epcot!....:)

Gringo said...

Hmmm...I just wonder how it is I can never find a seat in Paris...!

Virginia said...

I like the red/turquoise thing they have going. The Paris rain will weather them in no time!

Looks like the Café du Centre decided to invest in brand-new chairs for the terrace. If business is brisk, they'll look "lived-in" in no time. Wish I could help with that right now!

GREAT. Good composition. And those colours are only found in a café of Paris.

Mmm, how do I say this gently? I pass.

Loree said...

Only in Paris would they have chairs in red, white and blue :) Or perhaps not ;)

suzanneberry said...

you must tire of my constant praising of your eye, but what can i do? you are an artist!

Randy said...

Great colors!

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

I think that the café spiffed (not a French word) up the terrace for spring and summer with a new set of café chairs. I know that they are keeping with the same colors as I have a photo from a visit a year or two ago. I much prefer them to look a bit "used" or it looks like something that we would try to emulate here in the USA.

Wish I was sitting there right now with friends (all of you, bien sûr!)

Bisous
Genie

Ann said...

Oh yeah, by looking at the photo, it could just be anywhere... but if you say its in PAris, well... reserve me a seat in there ♥

Love the colors ♥

Petrea Burchard said...

It's very pleasing. I love the colors! I wouldn't mind sitting there right about now.
