Store Visit - Le Bon Marche Paris

Here's some lighting from Bon Marche in Paris. Particulalry liked these hand painted style shades. This store has a good variety of lighting from big brands to some smaller lesser known designers. It's always a destination store for me when I'm in Paris.

Le Bon Marche
24 Rue de Sevres
75 007 Paris.

Mater at Maison Objet

Mater which translates as mother is another company I came across at Maison . Nice products and an even nicer stance on ethical trading and sustainability. This is what they say about themselves…
“founded in 2006, mater is a copenhagen-based company with a strong vision to create timeless and beautiful design based on an ethical business strategy. mater is committed to creating ethical, sustainable and socially responsible design in accordance with the principles of the un voluntary corporate responsibility initiative, the united nations global compact. mater is a global compact participant. we support united nations declaration of human rights, united nations global compact and the international labour organisation (ilo) fundamental principles and rights at work.” You can find our more on their website www.materdesign.com and you can also visit them on their stand at 100% Design.
