These days he’s collaborated with several big designer brands, and has added whimsical porcelains, silk scarves and pillows to his product line. There really is no bounds to what he creates, each piece is more inspiring than the next. What I love most about his shop and products? You guessed it if you’ve read me for a long time, it’s the F U N he builds into each design!


I pretty much love every single thing he designs, and sells!  Every one of his designs will work in a traditional home filled with antiques, or a contemporary space.

    I live in this neighborhood, the 6th and have bought items to take with me when I visit family in the US.
    Everything is very beautiful and unusual. You won’t find blinking Eiffel Tower statues, but items that friends and family would really appreciate.
