Objets d’art

I’ve happily and somehow reluctantly realized that my design aesthetic has taken quite a turn over the past year and I find my eye wandering to objets d’art that are well, just that…art-y and price-y. Definitely more in the sophisticated realm, and a little less in the sweet where I’m more accustomed to dwelling, I’ve got to figure out a way to integrate pieces like this AND also somehow manage to get my guys mid-century modern bits in at some point. I actually feel kinda funny about these pieces because aside from the lamp-ness of the lamp they really are just ornamental and even the definition of an objet d’art has me grimacing:

A work of art with some artistic merit. An artwork exhibited for the purposes of decoration or the reflection of social status.

Eeew! That’s certainly not the idea I want to incorporate but I can’t help it, I can’t explain it, I adore this piece from Dwell Studio. The marble base with the brass tubes is like an everlasting blossom, so with that logic it’s an investment right?

And then there’s this unbelievably gorgeous lamp from Shades of Light that is functional but then oh-so-much-more with the decadent rose quartz body. (The only thing that’s got to go is the cheesy finial.) If there was ever a lamp that was me I suppose this would be it.
