Out And About: Gambs Seconde Nature, Paris

I first spotted and was drawn to Gambs from across a Paris street while exploring the city on foot.  Its amazing window display and selection of vases, lighting and botanicals were spellbinding.  Only upon entering the store, did I realize that the exhibited plants weren't real.  Never had I seen such realistic faux botanicals.  Merchandised among super cool lighting and home accessories,  in avant-garde vases these botanicals were a sight to behold.  Take a look at yet another favorite Parisian retail experience:

So would you fake it (when it comes to flowers) if they looked this good?!


Badminton Birdie Lights

Check out these amazing lights my husband and I stumbled upon in a Paris window display at Gambs (an amazing store I'll tell you more about tomorrow}.  Still in their prototype stage,  these feathered lights take on the form of badminton birdies.  Strung among a series of branches I found them to be both delicate and  whimsical. The feather and branch ends are magnetic so that their placement can be adjusted to your specific liking and need.  Take a look:
