Something old, something new…

Ozone candle

After the whirlwind of opening the new shop and unpacking the antiques from our latest French shipment it was fun to rediscover the ‘new’ products we found on our travels but more importantly, find a place for them! Sometimes it can be hard to visualize how well a more modern piece will sit amongst our store that is very focused on the old and the beautiful.
But as we have found it is this contrast that shows each of the styles in their best light, for me, this mix has become an essential element of interiors today.
I love the simple materials of the pale raw oak & clear hand blown glass of this quirky range from Belgium – the Onia – is both a vase and a candle holder, and the beautiful covered hurricane – Ozone – comes in 2 sizes as shown.

The French know how to take the seriousness out of antiques – this fabulous French interpretation of a chandelier made from white plaster and parchment looks great over the round oak table in the showroom but would also be at home in a white on white space….available as an 8 branch or 4 branch.
