Some of the highlights of the expanded Mademoiselle Collection include a signature Christopher Guy mirror design, Petales (#50-2971), composed of hand-carved petals, of which there are twenty-four, which was designed by Christopher to reflect an hour in the day of our lives. Montmartre (#60-0380), a beautifully tufted banquette with a black satin finish is wonderful as a central focal point such as a lobby or as a coffee table. The new Corail d'or (#90-0054) lamp was inspired by one of nature's most beautiful forms, coral, and so its subtle lines were recreated by Christopher in this light sconce to ensure elegance without overwhelming his vision of what the Mademoiselle household would look like. The Bâtons blancs (#46-0418) is made of white sticks is a subtle and yet highly complex piece of white wall art, crafted from planks of solid wood, pierced and hand-carved. Simplicity at its most complex. This collection is quickly becoming a steadfast collector's edition as well a new business model for the legendary design mogul.
