Intaglios

Written by laura on 10/05/2013

So much more than art for your walls, each one of our intaglios tells a story. While going through our new arrivals, I rediscovered my love of ancient mythology. Mighty heroes, tragic muses, and powerful gods, what’s not to love?

 From the tragedy of a lovelorn Aglaulus, turned to stone by the object of her affection, to the musical Apollo and his lyre. Each one, a wonderful conversation piece, and unique piece of art for your wall. It’s hard to choose a favorite!

Said to be one of the most beautiful of all mortal women, Psyche was tormented by a jealous Aphrodite. She was put through several trials, and eventually won the affection of Eros, the god of love. He made her his wife, and she became known as the goddess of the soul.

Artemis

Artemis, goddess of the hunt, wild things, fertility, and the moon. Artemis was considered friend to expectant mothers, and said to protect women during childbirth.

Our shipment from the south of France has arrived, tout est très beau! A glimpse of the gorgeous pieces we’ve received:

My favorite corner of the store

fais de beaux rêves

The beautiful Sofia bed. Silver leaf over carved embellishments and upholstered in white linen fabric. We’ve dressed this one in gorgeous white Bella Notte bed linens. Floating overhead like two sweet dreams, a pair of antique crystal chandeliers. I get sleepy just looking at it!  Fais de beaux rêves! 

Antique Doors

A variety of antique doors that make a lovely backdrop for any space.

Louis XV Armchair

 A Louis XV style armchair, circa 1900, in it’s original aged white finish. The exposed burlap upholstery and ticking cushion give it an elegant charm.

Perfume Bottles

And a sweet finishing touch, antique perfume bottles. Open them up and you can still catch a hint of the perfume that was once stored within, simply magical!
