Stewarding Treasures

Stewarding TreasuresMadame de la Maison, translated “madam of the house,” specializes in antique tabletop items and other pieces related to gathering. What began with tablecloths and plates now includes vases, books, and other decorative pieces to adorn the hosting space. Ajiri theorizes that the reason certain styles pique her interest is because they come from moments in history where there was pomp, circumstance, and fun. Similarly, she hopes the items from her shop will be used in celebration and moments of shared joy.
