Update: The name of Chantilly has changed to Cobblestone Market. They remain in the same location.
If you haven’t been to downtown Senoia in a while and you love to shop, you may want to visit. Several adorable little shops have sprung up over the past couple of years that make this Coweta town a great place to do local shopping.
One of our favorite shops is Chantilly, an adorable French inspired store right on Main Street.
Owners Rhonda and Marty, inspired by their love of French décor, opened the doors of Chantilly five years ago.
The store is an eclectic one that sells everything from paint to wine.
Their love of 18th century France is apparent as soon as you walk through the glass paned door. The shop is filled with light colored wooden furniture that softly curves, subtle pastels and delicate porcelain figurines.
The whimsical music, the beautiful scents and the visual harmony all create a delightful shopping environment.
One of the first things you notice when you walk inside Chantilly are the gorgeous chandeliers that were acquired when a local Senoia restaurant recently closed.
The store is stocked with beautiful jewelry, soft knits and stunning accessories as well as delicately scented candles, soaps and lotions.
Shoppers in Chantilly will also find blankets, French inspired décor and boutique clothing.
As we browsed around Chantilly, we found the furniture throughout the store to be very charming.
It was beautifully painted in pale, radiant colors with what appeared to be raised gilt trim.
We later learned from Rhonda that most of the furniture in the store is rescued and refurbished by herself.
In the very back room, there are shelves of the DIYers paradise also known as chalk paint.
Chantilly is the first shop in Georgia to carry Annie Sloan chalk paint.
This versatile paint can be used to create a variety of looks on furniture and other home décor.
This paint, combined with easy to apply Efex appliqués, can create a gorgeous French inspired piece of furniture out of a thrift store haul.
Not only does Chantilly have accessories, home décor and painting supplies, they also offer something for the sophisticated palate.
Past the lovely décor, there is a small coffee bar and racks of fine wine.
Marty can generally be found manning the Nespresso bar, which serves macarons and coffee.
The macarons are light and sweet and pair perfectly with the Nespresso.
The wine is carefully curated and includes a variety of French wines as well as European, Australian and American selections.
We found this bright store unique and believe that it offers something of interest for those with a variety of tastes.
We loved the cute lavender piano that sits outside the Chantilly storefront, inviting passerby to play a tune.
Chantilly hosts many events throughout the month.
There are monthly wine tastings, occasional wine dinners where a chef prepares a five-course meal that pairs well with the wine selections and home décor workshops with the chalk paint.
