Three Things I Love at Maison et Objet

Here are three things that I wish could come home with me from Paris.....

1. The Eiffel Tower- OK the Eiffel Tower and Paris are a given, so here are three things I can't live without from M&O

1. Leather Horizontal Blinds - The best interpretation I have ever seen. Available in snake, leather; leather and linen. Oh, the list goes on. Who wouldn't covet this supple saddle brown leather blind with embroidery! (Yes, you read this right it is silver metallic embroidery and beads on the face of that blind.)

2. Ideca medallion feather tiebacks The fabulous thing about this line is that all the tiebacks have magnetic backs that allow you to partially pull back the drapery - it doesn't need to go all the way back to the return edge.

3.Brony Alexander Hardware-This line of glass and acrylic decorative hardware including rings and rods is fabulous! Check out the black and fushia blown glass finial. I got to chat with the designer and owner just before we had to evacuate the hall. A wind storm came through Paris and the tents that hold booths had to be evacuated and didn't reopen today. We're hoping to get back in tomorrow.

  1. Don't you just love Paris? One of my favorite cities in the world. Looking forward to following your blog and the new trends for 2009.
