Old Meets New in an 18th Century Basketry Workshop

Shall we shake things up a little today? I spotted these stunning images of Atelier Vime over on Desire to Inspire this morning and thought it would be rude not to share them with you! The French vintage shop and design studio occupies a 18th century property in Vallabrèges - a small village on the banks of the Rhone in Provence known for basketry. Set-up in 1878 as a basket-making workshop, Atelier Vime has expanded into wicker and rattan furniture, as well as vintage mirrors, lighting and other beautiful pieces. Formerly built for a noble family in 1758, the house provides an incredible backdrop for their furniture. I particularly love how old and new come together in a striking way. Ready to transport yourself to Provence? 











So beautiful, don't you think? 

Did you see the floors? If not, it's worth going back through the pictures and just focusing on the floors alone!  

These pics have me pining for a trip to France! As a child, we used to go to France several times a year via the channel ferry. I've just realised how much I miss this beautiful country. 

Shall we indulge our inner Francophile with other beautiful French inspiration today? 


Oh la la! 

I feel like I've just spent the morning in France - all that's missing are the croissants!

Have a lovely day friends.

  2. Loved all of this, from the architecture, layers of texture and mix of materials and varied styles of furnishings. The image with the wood ceiling, tapestry and wicker (or rattan?) furniture was a visual feast. And those lovely aged and mellow wood floors are amazing.

  3. I am loving the photo of the last sofa (the last picture) - shaped somewhat like a Viking boat.
