Deja Vu

I spotted this light fixture through a shop window while walking in New York City and featured it in a June post. In my travels recently, I was surprised to see this light fixture once again as the focal point in the main stair at the Domaine de Fontenille in Lauris, France. The second image is a dramatic nighttime view of this light fixture looking up from below.

Victoria + Albert Rotunda Chandelier viewed during my first trip to London and the V+A Museum. I should clarify this, I visited London briefly a very long time ago and I do not recall much except the hovercraft ride from the White Cliffs of Dover that brought me to Paris for the first of many visits. It is a beautiful sculpture, but reading more about it revealed the obvious, it is a challenge to clean.

Illuminating Fashion

When I passed by this shop early in the day my eye was originally drawn to the jacket with the red collar and cuffs. I took a double take later that evening on the way to dinner.  The illuminated dresses provide the only lighting for this shop at night highlighting the sheer, delicate nature of the fabrics. This creative, whimsical display takes on a completely different look at night than by day. The shop can be found on the Rue Christine in Paris, France.
