From Garance Dore blog:

“Il y a quelques petits trucs parisiens qui me manquent vraiment… comme par exemple l’atmosphère géniale vers l’heure de l’apéro.

Personne a NY n’a réussi à reproduire l’ambiance insouciante des cafés parisiens à l’heure de l’apéro, et les gens qui s’installent tranquillement un peu partout dans la capitale…”


Apero time!

Apero time!

Lalanne’s Sheep at Sotheby’s XXth Century Design Auction- NY, December 2012

Sheep, so very chic and … certainly not cheap!

The last XXth century design auction at Sotheby’s

on December 2012 in New York saw this pair of Lalanne sheep stool sculptures sell for $542,500. In 2008, the year of the artist’s death, one of his sheep stools sold for more than double the estimate, at $158,500…

Francois-Xavier Lalanne’s surrealistic “Moutons de laine” have been stealing the scene for decades, ever since the late talented french sculpture created the first ones in the sixties.

A favorite of many famous fashion and interior designers, these sheep have adorned some of the most elegant and eclectic interiors I have seen so far, a perfect reminder of how essential it is to break the rules of design in order to achieve a timeless, fresh and original decor.

Among the illustrious fans of Lalannes animal sculptures are Yves Saint Laurent, Tom Marino, Jacques Grange, Marc Jacobs, Reed Krakoff…

If you are skeptical of how these bronze and furry animals could look in your living room, take a look at the following pictures…


Yves saint Laurent at home, getting cozy with his Lalanne’s.


In the entrance of an elegant Parisian Rive Gauche apartment by Jean-Louis Deniot.

In the Salle de Reception of the fabulous Greystone Estate designed by Waldo Fernandez.


In the entryway and entrance to the Krakoff”s New York Uptown mansion, and in a modernist living room in South Hampton, NY designed  by Delphine Krakoff of Pamplemousse Design.


In a sixties edition of Life Magazine on Parisian Living        …      and in a  2010 add.


In minimalist modern spaces                         ….and in grand antique settings.




And they even look great when they are knock offs! Eric Cohler named his lamb Tyler (Veranda- March 2010), Victoria Webster has hers in her Toronto home (Canadian House and Home 2012).   The kneeling one in the entrance is just GBP 323 from The Wool Room . Now, that’s a cheap steal…, er…sheep stool?
