Editorial of Jacques-Olivier Abiteboul, President of Le Carré GIE
Since Le Carré des Aviateurs opened its doors in 2007 it has been joined by many homeware and leisure importers, some of who are pioneers in the sector with more than 50 years’ experience.
It’s a sector that has come a long way since it’s creation and especially over the last 10 years.We no longer simply aim to import into France products from around the world, but to actually build collections around leading trends in the market.We also bring true added value, in the form of exclusive designs and related services that represent a major bonus for our customers.Our aim? To consistently offer the best possible value for money.

Every company in the GIE has at least one showroom on the “Le Carré des Aviateurs” site, which is situated in the Parisian suburb of Blanc-Mesnil. Its proximity to the A1 motorway and the RN2 main road ensures excellent access to Paris and to two airports: Le Bourget and Roissy Charles de Gaulle. Well-lit and practical, with a contemporary design, the buildings extend over 7.5 hectares and there is access to exhibition areas measuring up to 10,000 m2 for the largest.
