Last week Maryse, the owner of Pigeon Atelier, contacted me and introduced me to her online shop. I immediately feel in love and told her that her vintage treasures must be featured on my blog. :)
Here are a few words from the lovely Maryse:
One person’s bric-à-brac is another person’s treasure. The proof can be found in this online shop dedicated to objects and accent furniture doomed to be waste, as well as curiosities of all sorts which, once reinvented, become elegant and uncommon. It is not necessary to be a collector to visit and love this space, far from it. The desire to acquire affordable and emotionally charged objects that we are drawn to is enough.
In my opinion, some objects are simply too interesting to dispose of forever and many of them deserve to be saved. As a bargain-hunter, I know how to find these timeless treasures and to integrate, or reintegrate them, into our daily universe.
My motto: live for objects and breathe life back into them. There are numerous manners in which one can frame, hang or lay out objects and, most importantly, there are many ways to combine them, juxtapose them and to create a rhythm or an impact with them. An object can have a little humor, irony, rarity, or strangeness and one can introduce that into them by playing with its contrasts, dimensions, its colors, textures and emotional charge. To me, it is a question of acquiring objects that are full of memories and precious impressions of the past, rather than remote products devoid of life and soul. We must then accept and love those imperfections that render them unique and add to their charm.
She definitely has a gift for finding amazing items. Just browsing through her shop makes me want to collect each item and find a place for them in our tiny home.
