Chez Pascale Palun: la récup’ chic

 

My intrigue with the artist, Pascale Palun lead me to discover the private world of her magical home in Avignon, France that is full of beautiful treasures. Here’s a peek inside her home…

She has furnished it with things she has found at flea markets, garage sales and on the street; found objects that have weathered through to find their way into her heart and home. For Pascal, living with old things is “not looking backwards..on the contrary, it’s a way to reconnect with a history, to give to old things new value and another dimension..it’s the mysterious difference that exists between an electric lightbulb and the light from a wax candle.”

wire whimsy

 

I’m Carousel dreaming ~ coveting one of these gorgeously whimsical wire ‘lampes’ or table settings by the artist,

Pascale Palun who works in her studio Vox Populi in Avignon on the  French Riviera.

Romanticism and poetry are just some of the elements of Pascale Palun’s unique world.

Romeo et Juliette

L’Escalier

In Vox populi, she has brought together linen of old and vintage objects,

highlighting the passing of time, improbable wire assembled structures

and objects (decorative items, lamps, and jewellery) of her own creation.

A world full of grace and quirky beauty.

Pascale Palun started creating lighting and decorative objects made from old materials when she took a break after 10 years in the fashion industry to raise her son. Since then, she’s done interior design for John Malkovich and makes regular appearances at the bi-annual Maison & Objet trade show, leading to commissions from around the world.

Her philosophy is that each piece should be “unique, made by hand and imperfect.”
