    Default In Paris, a Threadbare Home From the 1800s

    Last year, Charles Carmignac, a member of the folk-rock band Moriarty, and his wife, Julie, bought a three-story, 1,600-square-foot house that sits on a quiet alley in the 14th arrondissement of Paris. It was built in the 1800s as a haberdashery.

    Yeah, but I would have a major mishap on those stairs within the first week of living there.

    Those stairs + booze= not a good combo. I like it otherwise.

    I think I'd hyperventilate in that narrow bathroom.

    Do they not believe in railings? Even on that upper level.

    I like most of it, but the floors seem like they would be dirty to me. I wouldn't be able to walk barefoot.

    1) Wtf is a haberdashery

    2) That washroom is ridiculous. I'm not turning sideways to pee.

    3) Deathstairs.

    A haberdashery is a men's tailoring shop.

    What an awesome space! Except for the bowling alley style bathroom.

    i don't think i could walk up those stairs sober. Even if I do make it to the next level, I'm a prime candidate for falling back to the ground level without a rail.

    It's a cool space but I couldn't abide that kitchen or that bathroom. Agree with everyone on the death stairs, too.

    No a habedashery is a shop that sells haberdashery - buttons, curtain hooks, and the like.

    I quite like it, I think... The jury is out.
