Clowning Around

Twenty, the cushion designed by Adam & Viktoria to inspire surprising fun, looks like kids’ building blocks that up and  ran away to join the circus. From its seams to its playful shapes, the pillow strikes the perfect balance .  And its colorways – pink-sienna and blue-grey – are a joy for jaded eyes and the perfect way to usher in fall 2014.

Marie Christophe calls this chandelier Cherry.  It’s a deliciously delicate design of prune and transparent crystals suspended in the air.  It’s my favorite dessert!

There’s nothing more mellow than yellow to warm a summer’s sunny day, especially when you’re decorating a guest room.

I found that Adam & Viktoria’s Tulipa pillow, in happy face yellow, green and jade, is the perfect companion for my visitors.

It’s summer every season of the year with Marie Christophe’s wandering wall flower.

Made of natural wood, ebonized wood and brass, this 43-inch beauty will never wilt.

Ceiling High Praise for Marie Christophe

“Absolute masterpieces.” That’s what Domaine Managing Editor Julie Millay Walsh declared in a recent blog about National Splurge Day. She was, of course, writing about Marie Christophe’s chandeliers. We can’t top that because we couldn’t agree more.

“French wire sculpture artist Marie Christophe‘s chandeliers and light fixtures are absolute masterpieces.  Dripping with beads and formed into the most charming shapes, the whimsical wire works are truly one of a kind, and in my opinion, the ultimate showpieces”.   Julia Walsh, Domaine Home   Many thanks for the feature Julia!

Marie Christophe’s wirework floor lamp found itself cast in a starring role in an apartment featured in April Elle Decoration France. It’s in the corner of the living room, by the draped window, but it’s a triumph of taste and the one thing the eye can’t help but spy.

Cloves, one of Adam & Viktoria’s newest, looks like it’s a fan of Sally Rand.

It dances in anticipation of summer.

On the Wings of Spring

You know it’s spring when Marie Christophe’s fluttery dragonflies, created from the wing of her wired imagination, take flight.


Pile On The Pillows

Pillows are a quick fix as they instantly upgrade a chair, sofa, or bed.  Adding patterned pillows will lift solid colored sofas and chairs and to that end,  we are pleased as punch to offer a new custom color way in Niwa – Orange Brown which was  created exclusively for Holly Hunt … it is lovely paired with Nautilus  in Parrot Red Hazelnut.

Both patterns  are available in the  custom 18″ x 12″ size originally created for Frederic Fekkaii as well as the original 18.5″ x 18.5″ size.   My sofa is super excited!
