Paris Objet Trouvé

Herbert Ypma


Featured here side by side are the artful and the eclectic, from the Empire style to the innovative work of Christian Astuguevieille, from the workshops of Aubusson to everyday objects found in the flea markets of Paris. Herbert Ypma’s photographs of historic postcards, Empire daybeds, stone busts, Art Deco bronzes, African tribal artifacts, tapestries, and quirky storage drawers in Pompadour pink capture the enchanting nature of a city filled with high-class glamour and old-world charm.


This must-have will have you ready to scour your neighborhood for one-of-a-kind pieces that make you feel a little closer to chic.
