never can say goodbye

hi guys, ca va? all’s well here, just a lot going on. whenever i get back to blogging it seems like i’m still at the tip of the iceberg of the maison objet recap but there was just so much! still, i’m determined to go thru it. so in keeping it organized, tonight’s post covers a couple favorite categories starting with porcelain.

there was a lot of white and cream, i was drawn to how much of it was handmade, with uneven glazes, really tactile and wanting to be held.

playful curves

simplicity; porcelain ceramic, white glazed pots that look like cans

lace pressed into the clay decorating edges of dishes and cups

super delicate and original.

i’m in love with french wood floors so it was great to see traditional styles able to be installed easily with big wooden floor tiles.

different finishes. some are salvaged from old floors and reclaimed wood, making each one unique.

and mixing woods

floors really set the tone.

there were lots of nods to the past in hardware and details. these too were hand forged and were really special and unique.

these little hand made birch nightstand cabinets had clustered gem handles made of coral and amethyst.

lighting was simple, also with a handmade feel

not too serious


and moderne

don’t get me started on the wall art! ok well i better go, i have to be out tomorrow at the crack of dawn.

when i get back i may just wrap up the rest of this show and put er to bed! till then, sweet dreams and enjoy your night!

    Hi Claudia,
    I would find a place for 2 of those blue/green lights/sconces right away!
    also love those circle lights – even though I’m more traditional than modern, I think I could work them in.
    Love looking at everything.

    Have a good weekend.
