If, like us, you're still dreaming about the château we visited yesterday in the Charente region of France—see La Vie en Vert —the good news is that most of the furnishings are available. Owners Isabelle Dubois-Dumee and Hubert Bettan run Les Petites Emplettes (translation: The Little Shop), an emporium of French and Moroccan household staples, straight from their enchanted castle. Here's a sampling. Baskets and Furniture  Above: A Mini Hanging Basket  made in Morocco of braided palm; €17 ($18.70). Above: Woven fiber  Round Poufs  are €49 ($53.92) each. Above:  Decorative Wooden Trees , approximately 29.5 inches tall, are €39 ($42.92), and "some slightly bend for poetic attitude as if the wind were blowing." Tableware Above: Dejeuner sur L'herbe , €31 ($34.11), is a biodegradable collection of lunch-on-the-grass dishes and utensils for eight, vial of salt included. Above: A Wool Storage Cube , made in France of unbleached wool, is €21 ($23.11). "Small decorative tip," write the couple, "adding textiles to your home adds warmth."   Above: A Mini Panier , sized for sugar cubes or paper clips, is €8 ($8.80). Above: A hostess gift Tabletop Pack , €24 ($26.40), comes in a wooden crate and includes picnic items for two: glasses covered with woven fiber, fiber mats, wooden spoons, lemongrass candles, and a pair of vases (flowers included). A set of four Natural Fiber Placemats is €29 ($31.91). The glasses are also sold separately. For the Bedroom Above: An organic cotton  Star-Adorned Duvet Cover and Pillowcase —with black and glow-in-the-dark stars—is €180 ($198.07).  Above: A string of Wicker Lights  (20 lights total) is €120 ($132.05).  Above: Les Petites Emplettes' made-in-France Organic Cotton Duvet Cover and Pillowcase of unbleached cotton is stamped "chut," which means "shhh." The set comes in two sizes starting at €159 ($174.96). Go to  La Vie en Vert  and  Les Petites Emplettes to see more.
