Swaddled In A Bed Of Straw

This bejeweled beauty from Marie Christophe arrived swaddled in a bed of straw. Such a pretty surprise!

Double Bouquet Of Beauty

What’s more beautiful than one Marie Christophe chandelier? Two, of course!

Apparently French beauty guru Frederic Fekkai thought so – he commissioned her to create a pair of custom Lustre Rose chandeliers to illuminate a dining table in his estate in the South of France. You can see it in Architectural Digest and L’Officel de la Mode.

Elegant And Understated

“I love a room that’s elegant, but really laid back and easy on the eyes,…a kind of uncluttered elegance that’s been paired down and really well-edited” Victoria Smith (aka sfgirlbythebay). Victoria talks about well edited spaces on the blog today and features Marie Christophe’s elegant and chic house. I couldn’t agree with you more Victoria because I love Marie’s house and just adore her blue eyed octopus!

The Layered Look

I love the layered look … Austin-based decorator Fern Santini chose Adam & Viktoria’s pillows to bring a touch of elegance to a lake-house sofa.

Not All Art Is Made For The Wall

In this Hollywood Hills living room, it’s the Marie Christophe lamp that sheds light on the brilliant nature of the collection!

1stdibs featured Marie Christophe’s Lamp Galet in the fabulous Hollywood Hills living room designed by Nickey & Amy Kehoe of Nickey Kehoe Design. The artful mastery of the cool collected art (don’t you just love that gallery wall!) paired with Marie’s coveted Lamp Galet really elevates this space…playful, personal and quietly clever; the ethos of this design duo!

Shalimar Lights Up A Living Room In Ibiza

I’m delighted to report that Marie Christophe’s Shaliimar chandelier is hanging out in a chic living room in Ibiza. Its golden cousin is illuminating Guerlain in Versailles.

Powder Room Goals!

Marie Christophe has been featured in Departures magazine yet again! The mirror she created in black, white and pink ceramic beads for a powder room for Oliver Furth’s Beverly Hills client is simply stunning – and I love the way it merges with the big-bloom peonies in the wallpaper. Talk about an indoor garden! It was an absolute pleasure to work with Oliver Furth on this project!!

Ponti Power

Glorious, gorgeous Ponti pillows shown in Dijon, Pink Lavender and Prussian Blue. I want them all!!

My Happiness Project!

Spring brings lots of news from Jo’s Farms, our lavender farm and my new business…. We’re opening a shop for all things lavender and it is also a place where you can rediscover the most amazing works from European artists (some no longer in production ) and the most intoxicating French lavender growing in my field.
My linen bags, bundles of beauty are a reminder of the intoxicating color and perfume of my lavender garden.

Poetry In Wire!

Marie Christophe is crafting this simple, spherical chandelier for a client in Paris.
It’s a custom ceiling centerpiece – it measures 43 inches by 34 inches – and when Marie completes it, it will feature signature lights. I love watching Marie work on her works – she gives form to imagination and dreams.

Great Pieces Look Wonderful Wherever You Put Them

Marie Christophe’s Hibou lamp made a cameo appearance in Traditional Home’s feature on London interior designer, Suzy Hoodless.
The Hibou lamp isn’t exactly traditional, but it proves that great pieces look wonderful wherever you put them.
