When I saw Bonita Ahuja’s latest hand-woven fabric, Ray, it brought to mind spires of light at night. The hand-dyed grey-green wool and silk cloth, crossed with aubergine, is trimmed in a vintage lilac silk.
Marie Christophe’s wonderful wiry mobile, with its shiny blue and silver discs, caught the attention of Marie Claire Maison, which featured it on the cover. Graceful and graphic, they blur the boundaries between art and design, and are perfect for pendant poise at home. They can be hung like pendant lights, suspended to provide sculptural room dividers, idling in the breeze or rotating at a touch.
Cartier also commissioned a pair for their stylish Paris windows.. no wonder the zebra can’t take it’s eyes off it!
It seems like only yesterday that Adam & Viktoria created the custom pillows for Frédéric Fekkai that were featured in the 2008 Elle Décor spread that I so love.
As for today, well, we all can have the beautiful bolsters because Adam & Vitkoria have added an 18 inch by 12 inch Nautilus in Parrot Red Hazelnut as well as the Chinoiserie in Aqua Olive to their newest collection.
My sofa is super excited!
Adore interior designer, Suzy Hoodless – have you seen her wallpaper– it’s fabulous!
Marie Christophe’s Hibou lamp made a cameo appearance in Traditional Home’s 2008 feature on London interior designer Suzy Hoodless.
Suzy put the lamp in her store window, and the rest is history. The Hibou isn’t exactly traditional, but it proves that great pieces look wonderful wherever you put them.
Adam & Viktoria’s new spring collection puts more bloom on the blushing blooms; Cloves taking inspiration from the Indienne textiles made in Europe during the 17th and 19th century, Argyle, here overgrown with flowers, a grid where the organic takes over, Edgar our sweet cheeky monster and reworked Chrysanthemum, which looks like a vivid charcoal drawn on paper.
The chocolate truffles, the long stemmed red roses— they can’t hold a candle to the romantic Mr. and Mrs . Lamps by Marie Christophe. They are anything but an old married couple. The Mr. has a handlebar mustache and a silly smile: Mrs. has a sunny corona and a set of Mae West eyelashes that reach for the stars. These were custom for www.tinatin.com. Thanks for sharing Tinatin..
Happy Valentine’s Day!
