Beautiful Yarn

We are just back from showing the blankets at Maison et Objet in Paris. The show is huge, with lots of beautiful things from all over the world. One of the things which really caught my eye though was actually in a little Japanese Bento restaurant in central Paris.

I love these lamp shades. They are very simple -  just coloured yarn wrapped around a wire frame. The result is beautiful - the light leaks through the fibres and the effect is like colouring with a felt-tip pen.

 The place is called Nanashi and is on the Rue de Paradis. They do good soba noodles too!
