Paris: Made by Hand PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Paris: Made by Hand free pdf There's a new trend among the young designers and decorators of Paris: an embracing of an aesthetic called fait main. Literally, this means "made by hand," but in this case it includes not only new items fashioned by hand but vintage objects and found objects that are valued as they are, or that may have been reworked. What unites them is the "handprint" of a talented creator. Stylist Pia Jane Bijkerk has discovered more than fifty places-organized into walks-that embody this style. Some are shops owned by professional chineurs, people who hunt out objects sought after by interior decorators, architects, and stylists. Other places aren't really shops but primarily studios, where, if you stop by, you can purchase something directly from the artist. Also included are nearby cafes, bakeries, cheese shops, and tearooms with artisanal foods that reflect the spirit of "made by hand."
