I like that the furniture tell me stories, those of the family: the oval table on which the stay once my great uncle was cutting the pig; the block from my grandfather left the butcher became the living room console; old seat as a daybed, upholstered armchairs black mohair velvet which gives the impression that they are but shadows; or beautiful old chains I do retapisser with completely kitsch tapestries! 

The most unusual or unexpected that one can find at home?

Stéphane Marie: The chandeliers. This huge apple double palmetto was once in the garden. When he died, I had the idea of ​​transforming it. It is suspended by the roots above the mezzanine. Two magpies it look ass, under the astonished eyes of a squirrel! In the living room there is a large wooden ivy branch: it is like a spider on the ceiling. The dozen bulbs that illuminate, are reflected in a collection of pendants made of glass or crystal.
