Wrap It Up

I was excited to come across the name of a designer who was new to me yesterday.  Christian Astuguevieille has been the head of a fashion house, a perfumer, a sculptor, a painter, a craftsman, and a designer of jewelry and furniture. He works in a nineteenth century space in Paris that is “a world of dreams” that sprouts “from his hands and imagination of the artist.” He’s probably best know for his pieces wrapped in hemp rope that are both chic and surreal. Unfortunately, the photos of his cabinet of curiosities can't be enlarged but I think they'll still make you want to grab a length of rope and wrap something up.

I love the rope. I see a DIY in my future. I especially love how he didn't neglect that narrow hallway. Even that has life and character.

Interesting details. I feel like every piece in these rooms is unique and has a story to tell.

Oh my, not only are his creations fabulous but how about those herringbone floors and the moldings, too? Gorgeous. I can only dream of having a Paris apartment...lovely images. See you in Chicago! Beth
