This Serge Mouille inspired, mid-century design light fixture hovers playfully above providing soft indirect light and visual interest particularily when you open your eyes after a late afternoon nap! Also spotted at The Marlton in NYC… and paired with the “Hand” in the previous post.

Maharam’s Stripe, designed by Alexander Girard in 1973 paired with complimentary colors from a retro, 21st century palette anchored by 2017 Mixed Stripe wallcovering designed by Paul Smith, befitting his penchant for stripes and creative, retro designs, clearly a nod to Mr. Girard and the 1970’s.. Also…checkout The “Stripe” Shop on Floral Street in London, one of Paul’s many shops around the world, all uniquely themed.

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.
