Hi, I'm Katherine Shakas

I’m an interior designer and I’ve been using antique furnishings, art and objets d’art throughout my career. Shopping with or on behalf of clients for such treasures has long been one of my favorite pastimes. In 2015 I took a giant leap of faith and traveled to Paris and the south of France to make purchases of my own. I was transfixed, inspired, and invigorated at every turn. Blooming fields of lavender through the train window, country farmhouses, centuries old stone walls…beauty everywhere, and then the ultimate hunt for treasures. This trip would be the most gratifying business trip I could have ever imagined. My intention was not to open a store but to build an inventory for future use. I imported my first container, and while looking for warehouse space stumbled upon the lovely storefront in Costa Mesa. It seemed absolutely perfect, it made me sigh…and there began The French Container.
