what meets the eye

aynhoe

hi on this wednesday eve! stopping by to download some of my favorite things at the maison objet, the  home furnishings show  in paris that’s randomly also held in miami now. what a dream that is with  paris at my doorstep. well a lot of the world, actually and if you don’t stop to meet the vendors you’d never know the stories behind some of the most fascinating people and families in the world. prime example: i was going to whiz by this stand with the feather lamps cause, well, i wasn’t sure i needed one right now. but on second thought i decided to take a look. louise was running the booth and told me the most colorful tale of the creator behind them, james, who lives in the castle below.  it functions as a place where they make plaster casts of museum held- grecian ruins and among other things, these lamps.

    I love the feather lamps! I wouldn’t want one–I can imagine the dust it would collect. But they’re very fun.
    Is Pierre in the stone business. Name = destiny!?!?
    The customizable chandeliers are interesting. I have some chandeliers that are not quite as blingy as I would like, and am thinking of adding a few pampilles. I’m going to check these out. Thanks!
