I start my day at Jo’s Farms, my lavender farm, collecting eggs from my chickens, and it’s pure delight to display them on my breakfast table in Marie Christophe’s pretty poultry basket.

Marie Christophe’s stunning new Rainbow chandelier sets the scene for elegant dining!

 

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. 

This magnificent, whimsical, fantastical creation by Marie Christophe looks so fabulous in Muriel Brandolini’s fabulous dining room, don’t you think?
Classic elegance at its best!!

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.

 

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.

Blake Hotel, London

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.

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!

 Whether it is a specific project or event, we can provide something unique to you!

This new pagoda-style chandelier, which features wooden beads and crystals, is the centerpiece of Muriel Brandolini’s dining room.

I love the unexpected combination of the wooden beads paired with the glittering crystals!  Divine!!

Lavender Days Ahead
Adam & Viktoria’s latest – Little Domino Purple pillows remind me of my lavender field when I can’t be outside picking the fragrant bouquets.
I love them paired with Hybrid Snappy Green lumbar + Little Domino Green
Adam & Viktoria’s latest – Trellis Purple, New Kyoto Light Kelly Green, Flou Plum and Pastille Purple – remind me of my lavender field when I can’t be outside picking the fragrant bouquets.

My Favorite Patio- Purple and Green Picked Up From Monet

Boudoir announces itself with a palette of neutral ceramics.

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.

Marie Christophe’s new sparkling chandelier is filled with fancy crystal flowers – what a brilliant and bright bouquet in the sky! They will bloom every morning and every evening in your house too!

 

Tree of Life

If you’re longing for spring (and who isn’t?) Marie Christophe’s tree of life sculpture, filled with fanciful flowers and fluttering birds, will certainly get you in the mood.
 
  With more time spent indoors than ever before, we’re all seeking to strengthen our connection with nature.  
This lure back to nature has become a recurring theme with my clients .. a renewed interest in the nature inspired chandeliers and sculptures like this created for Pierre-Louis Mascia  with leaves, owls,  and exotic birds by Marie Christophe.

Chateau Days!

Marie Christophe’s cradled-baskets chandelier is the centerpiece of this table, set for a dinner party and its guests at Domaine de Bailleul, a castle in Normandy, France

It gives such as warm glow to the setting!

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..

Birds of a feature stay together, especially if they are on Marie Christophe’s latest sculpture.

Bejeweled Beauties
