There’s décor I like, and then there’s décor I can’t. stop. thinking. about. Every week I showcase an item that the team and I are currently obsessing over, aka a “Funk favorite.” The right storage piece can add panache to any room, as this Tab Shell and Shagreen Rectangular Box reveals. Handmade from beautiful materials and lined with a rich, black microsuede, there’s no better place to keep your favorite items than in this luxurious keepsake box.
This gorgeous piece is offered by luxury retailer Barneys, but its design comes courtesy of Normandy-based French design think tank Ginger Brown. The company, who specializes in working with exotic materials such as parchment and sea shell, transforms these “raw natural treasures” into high-end furniture and accessories that are widely sought after. This particular box is emblematic of their in-house style, featuring an elegantly chimeric design that combines sharkskin shagreen, goldtone brass, and polished rainbow shell.
