Exotic and exuberant, Marie Christophe’s whimsical pagoda-style chandelier, which features birds winging their way around wooden beads and crystals, is the centerpiece of Muriel Brandolini’s dining room.
Marie Christophe just designed these beautiful little lanterns, Milles et une Nuit (A Thousand and One Nights), for Jean-Louis Deniot. There are a dozen to accent an outdoor corridor.
I’m so in love with them because it’s so Marie and so Jean-Louis – she decorated it with extra-large ceramics in his signature honey palette of gold, black, white and transparent.
When I discovered Marie Christophe, it was LOVE at first light. She takes a humble material – wire, of all things – and, like magic, creates fairytale, functional art.
I have always looked to France for instruction in matters of elegance as much as a child looks with wonderment and awe the first time she sees something special.
The something special I saw when I was strolling in Paris in 1999 was one of Marie’s chandeliers. It was suspended from the ceiling of a lovely gallery.
My heart skipped beat, and I knew I had to share her whimsical wire works with the world.
She was the first artist I signed; so she and I really started together.
Today’s beautiful custom creation for my client!

Let the Sun Shine In
It’s not quite summer yet, but the latest Marie Christophe piece warms my heart as no real rays can.
Her stunning sun sculpture, which gets its blinding bling from ceramics, reminds me once again that the lovely days of summer really are endless.

The next time you’re in the Blake Hotel London, look up. Marie Christophe’s chandelier has five crystal birds and two crystal owls sitting on its trio of beautiful branches.

Making the Cut
This color– my new favorite hue – reminds me of my lavender field at Jo’s Farms, and the shop that I just opened.
Kyoto, a real stunner from Adam & Viktoria, gets its abstract oomph from the cuts in kimonos..
Spring and summer mean dining in the garden and setting a beautiful table. My mother, born in Sicily, always set hers with a tablecloth, a vase or two of flowers from the garden and, of course, a bottle of wine for lunch and dinner. On my table, I always include one of Marie Christophe’s bejeweled birdies, who are eagerly waiting to wing it from my home to yours.
Birds of a feature stay together, especially if they are on Marie Christophe’s latest sculpture.
Marie Christophe’s angel wings and her Chinois lion lamp make a pretty pair. I love their artistry!
