Geranium Lizard Tissue Cube $129. and Wastepaper Basket $147.

One of the most versatile accessory lines we carry in the boutique is that of Helene Batoff.
Helene makes wonderfully adaptable wastepaper baskets (and matching tissue cubes of course) that work well with many furnishing styles. 

Seafoam Lizard Tissue cube $129., Wastepaper Basket $147.
Mini Cup $28.   Pencil Cup $34.  Frame $90.

Her own finishes include all colors of Lizard and Alligator textures, Suedes and Moirés. But that is not all.......

She will gladly make you a classic round basket and tissue cube in your own fabric ! That means whatever designer fabric you have in your room, be it Sister Parish, China Seas or Scalamandre, you can (and must) have accessories in the matching fabric. Just don't have a dress made for yourself (a la Laura Ashley) in that same fabric or we may never find you again!

Liberty of London Pink and Yellow floral prints
Wastepaper baskets $130.   Tissue Cubes $120.

We sent Helene some of our own Liberty of London fabrics and had her cover all sorts of things with it......not only waste baskets and tissue cubes, but frames, rectangular baskets and blotters.

Rectangular basket in Liberty fabric $66.
Lizard Pencil cup $34.

The legendary D. Porthault of Paris even uses Helene to make picture frames covered in their fabrics.

D. Porthault Pink Coeur Frame $105.

So, too, does one of our favorite design houses, Sister Parish. We have many of Helene's offerings covered in prints such as Albert, Burma, Bolero and Chou Chou.

Sister Parish Burma Tissue cube $129.

Leather Address Books $85.

Leather-covered Memo Pad holders $37.

Many of these fun and fabulous accessories are available at our boutique, but if you don't see just the right color or fabric or finish that will work for you, let us help you design one that will. Helene is up to the challenge as are we.

A toute a l'heure.....
