For great design, sometimes all you need is good friends, superior coffee, and some really cool stools. Of course, a hip Paris location doesnt hurt either.
Discovered via Anknels and Burblets, Ten Belles, the latest shop to enter the burgeoning coffee scene in the City of Lights, is already a local favorite. Fans praise not only the brewing prowess of barista Thomas Lehoux, who learned his art from an American, but also the homemade fare offered up by Alice Quillet and Anna Trattles of the equally popular Le Bal Café.

They are easy to care for, often thriving in low light and little watering. When watering most succulents, a good rule of thumb is that when in doubt, don’t water. In the warmer months once or twice is enough. Cut back even more in the winter. Taller specimens should be planted in deep pots to provide more stability as they will tend to droop. Use a well draining mixture of potting soil and coarse sand.
Most of the Sansevieria grow slowly but remain patient as they’ll reward you with many years of hardiness and will surely stand out in your garden landscape.
Quinze & Milan’s Pilot Stool is notable not only for its curved (and seemingly comfortable) seat, but also for its new method of fabrication. Polypropylene foam is utilized in a special manufacturing technique (see below video) to create a glossy-yet-matte surface. The oak legs thread onto the seat, making the stool easy to ship and assemble. Available in three different height variations: standard, kitchen, and bar.
Designed by Patrick Rampelotto + Fritz Pernkopf for Quinze & Milan.
