As a regular feature on this site, we plan to post brief information about some of our favorites in France: talented people, beautiful shops, our picks for places to grab a bite or raise glass, and lovely boutique hotels which we discover. Allons-y!
OVER-SIZED SILVER-TONE LAMPS
Our take: From the open design of the metal bases to the elegant dimensions of its barrel shades, this pair of lighting options is a true beauty! They’d make perfect statement pieces on a buffet or library table and add a soft glow to your home entertaining spaces. Not too heavy to move easily, we’ve enjoyed them in different settings in the store. In fact, we voted them “Best of Show” this season!
MARGO’S PICK FOR A SUMMER MOTIF
Our take: Margo has christened summer 2021 with her shell motif theme (see “Le Style Iconique” in this issue on our website), and it’s a winner! We’re following her lead in imagining the ingenious uses for this one-of-a-kind French marble antique “évier” from the Midi/South of France. Here we’ve paired it with a vintage soft gray French console as a visual tip for a powder room sink, or even part of the main bath appointments. It’s ready to install– just add your inspiration and you’ve got a timeless look!
CRESHAWN’S PERSONAL CHOICE
Our take: This single antique iron wall sconce is lovely, small enough to enhance but not overwhelm a wall, and an easy, affordable “pick-me-up.” Envision it in an entryway or as part of an art and lighting collection display, it also makes a fantastic gift for a new home-owner! Found by one of Lamps & Lightings’ most reliable antiques dealers in France, it speaks of Gallic grace and design with every curve.
