::SHOP WINDOWS, KIDS SHOPS AND STUFFIES A LA FRENCH::
We went buy this tiny boutique/gallery several times and I just adore it. It's showcase for Claire Coles, who creates the most beautiful art pieces. I especially fell for her stitched wallpaper art. (See under "commissioned art" on her website.)
Notice the yellow lamp? It's by Swedish Design Dessert....I so so want it.
They also represent Donna Wilson and her cool squirrel...that I - up until now - thought was a fox!!! A-hem...
And come on how funny are these tea cosies?
Well it is DEFINITELY the kind of shop I want! Maybe with a little dash of Calesta - THE kids shop in Paris. They carry ALL the cool brands like the Japanese kids clothes designers Muchacha and the Bugaboo stroller.
They also function as a gallery - I suppose - as artist Veronique Lafont had an exhibition there, showing über cool stuffies. (Check it out here and here.) They're not only cute and inspiring but also kinda weird ;o)
Another kiddy store/gallery is Niou.
They have various cool toys and interior stuff like these:
Very Scandinavian - Very me.
Their exhibition was very cute and of course I forgot the name of the exhibitor!!! And I didn't get the business card. And I wish I did.And oh well....that's it.
