French Country

My life in France is not what I expected.

Out in the countryside I have an amazing camera and lenses calibrated so finely that they can focus on the angels, leaving the pinhead on which they dance all warm and fuzzy. However at the moment I am in the city, trying to coax a decent shot from my cell phone. Such is life.

This is a coat rack, known as a Hangitall, designed by Charles and Ray Eames,  with new colors by Hella Jongerius.

I started with the idea that my house, which combines elements of France, England, Poland, Turkey, Belgium and Italy — so far — should have a bit of California added in. I never met Charles Eames but I have been to the house a couple of times. It was my privilege to meet Ray just once. She was adorable. I wanted to adopt her. Now she’s gone. I’ll have to settle for the coat rack.

And what is this Jongerius? Google tells me she is Dutch and designs for Ikea, among others. Another country and maybe a few items to be selected that won’t break the bank. Excellent.
