The French company Bleu Nature was created in 1995 by Frank Lefebvre. A craft-based business located near Lille, in Northern France, Bleu Nature works mainly with found driftwood sourced from beaches, though they also encorporate pebbles, lacquered wood, lacquered metal, leather, skins and petrified wood into their designs. Perfect for adding a breath of the sea (or lake) to a city home. Shown here, from top to bottom: Qaqortoq chair, Igniq hanging lamp, Olympe linen rack, Qijuk shelving unit.
I'm back from my lovely long weekend by the lake, but I'm too sleepy to post much right now. But here's a peek at where I was for the last few days. Most of my time was spent reading and chatting with family in a chair on the dock, or perched in the canoe with Andrew, slowly paddling around watching the loons, snapping turtles and other little woodland creatures going about their mysterious private lives.
