Objects are sentimental. They are possessions we cherish for their beauty or ability to add story. From the detail of a decorative fire guard to the relaxed tapestry of a raffia lamp or vintage bamboo lighting, objects can be playful and eclectic: emotional pieces woven with history, provenance, discovery and connection to place.
Where French and Italian antiques articulate a love of old-world elegance, kinship may be found with more modern objet d’art expressing similar motifs. Resonant with the watery atmosphere of ancient Venice, the translucent light emitted from Italian Murano glass in sconces, vases and lighting, finds connection to the undulating curve of the Wave Fire Screen or deep blues of a vintage oil painting to express a higher love of the ocean, her serenity and spirit.
