Daniel Pontius

“I don’t want more choices, I just want nicer things.” Here at Bibelots we are all about trading up. That said, having no chair at all is better than an unloved chair; a stack of books is far better than an ugly cocktail table; a cushion on the floor is much nicer than an uncomfortable sofa. 
The images above are some of the things that (I like to imagine) I would get to replace some of the things that I do own. Those things that I would not like as much, if I owned these. A new motto might be: Buy one & give two away.
