Everywhere you look right now, the shop is gloriously adorned with seashell works of art, both petite & grande. These exquisite calling cards of summer & nature, perfectly adorned in inspiring, architectural formations, have long been an important part of the decorative arts & we can’t get enough of them.
The shell as an art form is irresistible, magical & brings the seashore & pure underwater whimsy directly into the home with all its’ soothing calm & untamed natural beauty.
The palette of colors is magnificent; delicious pinks, deep lavenders, luminescent whites & shades of silver & sand
so it’s no wonder that Paris’ obsession with collecting shells began in the 1640’s!
We have proudly showcased a mind-blowing assortment of sumptuous, beshelled masterpieces over the years including: mannequins covered in shell evening gowns, large scale busts, chandeliers, multi-tierred cakes (!), elaborate vanity boxes, sea glass bottles, several violins (oui!), over-sized hutches & cabinets, all in their beshelled glory &
Colorful & curvaceous, exotic & fascinating, we have amassed a fabulous collection this summer of one-of-a-kind shell art pieces that each would make an alluring focal point & compelling conversation piece to wash ashore in your coastal setting.
Come on in – the water’s fine & our seashells are always
over the top glamorous.
