Nice spot in Marseille !

At the beginning there was a shop  in Marseille offreing a range of bed linen, towels and table wear, lighting, ceramics, household linen, a selection of hand crafted objets made from cedar and lemon tree wood, elliptical wicker lampshades…  . The place was not only a shop but also a space offering a tearoom, exhibitions of photographs or painters... a kind of place to be and to visit.

a crib suspended leaving a storage area under,
a small drawer hosting a corner changing table on top,
some stickers,
homemade canopies with curtains,
soft lighting like fairy lights ... to give baby the best nights in a little corner of his/her own!

The Tolix chair has become an icon of industrial esthetics. This French brand with an unfailing popularity since 1934 , has launched a new collection for kids with a toy box, a blackboard, an armchair, a desk...
The collection for kids have the same advantages than the mythical chair for adults : crafted of sheet metal, they assure  fool-proof solidity, unequalled lightness,and easy maintenance.
This new children’s range has been drawn up by Normal Studio and the tandem Sebastien Cordoléani &Franck Fontana.
Let's hope that this new collection will have the same success  than the adults' ones already very famous in USA !
