Treasures from Maison et Object January 2012

Perhaps the best trade show I have ever attended is Maison et Objet (which is currently underway in Paris).  There is just so many exciting new things to see there and I always wish I could make the trip.  So with much excitement I just read a round-up post over at Apartment Therapy by Ellie Tennent about the current show and some of her favorite picks.

Can we all nod our heads in agreement that these stack-able Matrioshka doll-like candle holders (that are perfectly misty/milky at the bottom) are just about amazing?   I’ll take 2….wait make that 10….

‘Bougies Russes’ candle holders designed by Stephan Lanez.

I continue with my lusty search for just the right neon sign to hang near my (hopefully completed this coming season) new deck and pergola.  So now that I have found 5 of them, I am not sure which to choose…..Artist and Designer Rory Dobner created all of these and he launched this collection at the show.  My rudimentary knowledge of the neon sign market makes me not even want to ask what it will cost me to actually own one of these charmers.

Before & After: Sarah’s Enlivened Front Yard

It takes a lot of work to pull off a cottage garden that looks amazing all summer long, and it seems that more often than not I see these types of gardens finding themselves in a state of mid-season dissaray. And since most of us don’t have half as much time to dedicate to gardening…

Howling at the Moon Night Light

Is it me or does this lamp bring out some sort of carnal desires….like a need to go howl in the dark under the light of the moon. The outdoor “Notturno” light was created by Federica Veronesi after taking a picture of the moon one night. The light is made of an oval acetate sheet…
