TRENDS FROM PARIS

While in Paris, we had the good fortune to spend time with German author and journalist Eckhart Nickel and his lovely wife Susan.

Delightfully robust, Eckhart shared his perspective on a recent movement in art/fashion/architecture/design – that of selecting what is real, raw and primitive. As a modern culture in an ever bustling world, we find ourselves seeking a soulful connection to organic materials and hand-crafted goods.  It’s true – what we have seen most in this romantic city is the presence of what is authentically real. Delicately woven textiles, hand tooled furnishings, one-of-a-kind objects.  Inspiringly beautiful to the hand and to the eye!
