BIBELOTS is my intention to expand a narrative of beauty. A focus on beauty can be lost in the world of design when our desire to fulfill our own singular narrative outweighs a need for suitability, simplicity, and proportion.

A bibelot by definition is a small object of curiosity, beauty, or rarity. A secondary definition is a miniature finely crafted book. These books: leather with gilded imprints and marbleized paper are not particularly miniature; nor are they rare relative to the world at large . Indisputably–in my fanciful world– they are beautiful.
