Meet the crew

Meet the ladies of le bien-vivant (L.O.L) suis antoinette!

I have already had the pleasure to spend time with several of you lovely people, so let me just say THANK YOU for allowing me to share my passion of soulful design with you! we have so many fun events lined up for the summer and beyond!

I really wanted to give you a glimpse of my "behind the scenes" team. these two dear friends have been so supportive of me in my day to day endeavor of bringing the best of all things soulfully french to manhattan beach. and with all the blood, sweat and tears in opening a new brick and mortar, the LOL laughs have made it all worth it! je suis chanceuse!!!

we look forward to seeing you and sharing more experiences of "the good living" with you!



bonjour, je suis caroline!

as fellow designer working with antoinette, I am based in Paris. from flea markets to the Drouot auction house via art galleries, I enjoy strolling through the city in search of bespoke treasures for our shop.

I have an appetency for modernism and am influenced by architects and designers like Le Corbusier, Pierre Chareau (if you come to Paris, you must visit la maison de verre) or Charlotte Pierrand.

I also believe that design is about being curious, finding beauty in the simplest little things, drawing inspiration from every unique story. it must be sincere and warm to allow each living space to reflect the soul of its inhabitants.

This is our entire philosophy at le bien-vivant!


salut, je suis charlène!

visiting for the summer all the way from my home in Paris, I am the showroom manager for le bien-vivant. I fell in love with manhattan beach since my first visit here back in 2016. the beach is my happy place where I meditate peacefully and renew my energy. this is perhaps what I love the most about our shoppe...the mix of mediterranean and californian lifestyle speaks to my heart. my desire is to bring a peaceful vibe and assist you in finding the perfect piece for your home.

I look forward to greeting you soon!


If you have a question about our services and products or if you simply want to say hello, feel free to call the showroom or to drop us a message!
