Archive - Metal Furniture


Two views of an elegant interior courtyard in Morocco. I love the interesting metal chair.



The bedroom in the same home in Morocco.



A pretty still life in an apartment in Paris.



Dominique Kieffer's tiny Paris pied-à-terre, with the dining area tucked into the hallway. I love the wonderful patina on the metal garden chairs.

Note: All of these photos are pulled from my image archive for Marie Claire Maison, and date from the late 1990's.

Sun Tattoo


Taiwan-based designer Yu-Chiao Wang has some very interesting ideas, like this one: a Sun Tattoo. It's essentially a soft stencil that, when worn outside, uses sunshine to create a temporary tattoo on the body (though Yu-Chiao recommends using sunless tanning cream for the best result). More about Yu-Chiao at her portfolio page here. Via Cindy (thanks!)

J.J. Grandville


Have a look here at the very odd work of J.J. Grandville, a 19th century French caricaturist and cartoonist. Looking at some of his drawings, it's hard to believe he predates the Surrealists. Via things magazine.
