Form & Function
You can purchase all the pretty furnishings you want... but until you outfit a home with curious objects and personal belongings it still reads "showroom" not "yo' room." I tend to gravitate towards objects that are as interesting to look at as they are functional. Stacking boxes for storage. Trays for display. Bowls for a variety of purposes. Vases for their form and their intended purpose.
These pretty objects seen here add dimension and texture to a room while encouraging visitors to inquire about their origins. Duck's egg blue lacquer boxes, decorative shagreen bowls and a pierced stoneware vase (that I'd have sworn was coral) are just a few of the fantastic creations spied at Lille.
