Detail of the Week



I hope you have had a wonderful weekend! As December is just around the corner, I am preparing a variety of posts to share with you—some Christmas gift ideas, decor inspiration, fashion, as well as some thoughts and words to hopefully help and inspire you this month, or even just make your day a little sweeter...

Today, I wanted to showcase a very unique few pieces from Bleu Nature—a wonderful company that I discovered while in Paris. "Founded in 1995, Bleu Nature is a craft-based business located near Lille, in Northern France. Our principal material is driftwood, but we also use pebbles, lacquered wood, lacquered metal, leather, skins and petrified wood. Here, the natural erosion of a fragment of wood is a source of inspiration and perpetual wonder. Explore a collection of furniture and lighting fixtures in which driftwood forces simplicity and plays with contrasts."

I love the combination of materials and their sincere dedication to their Eco concept.
What do you think, friends?

*p.s just a little reminder—tomorrow is the big day! I will be drawing a winner for the Sartorialist book.

  9. Hi Sarah,
    I love these. They are truly beautiful and I love the fact that they are committed to being eco-friendly. I love the candle holder ~ the juxtaposition is wonderful. I did enter to win the book. I have my fingers crossed! Did you enter the art glass ornament giveaway yet? I love those ornaments. I keep looking at the pictures. I think I'm going to have to buy them!
