Exuberant and playful, the Marseilles loft home and workshop of Lebanese-born stylist, set designer and artist Mitri Hourani is a temple to recycling. The house itself was formerly a mill, and it's now filled with a fascinating collection, the result of Mitri's philosophy of retrieving objects and then re-inventing them, giving them a second life. The resulting ever-evolving interior is a brilliant reflection of Mitri's vibrant imagination. More (in French) here on Marie Claire Maison.

The striking design of the Alouette Lamp by Miles Keller is based on Canada's first satellite — the Alouette, which launched back in 1962 and made Canada the 3rd nation into space. The lamp is available here.
