The Irish Times - Thursday - Property - - Interiors -

This pre­cious metal can be used dec­o­ra­tively to re­flect light. Some tea-light hold­ers, part of a re­cent col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween fur­ni­ture firm La Mai­son Puifor­cat and top French in­te­rior ar­chi­tect Tris­tan Auer, were shown in gilded al­coves, a trick used by the church for cen­turies to throw shadow and light back into a room. It’s an idea that can be used to ef­fect in both con­tem­po­rary and pe­riod homes. tris­tanauer.com; pu­ri­for­cat.com;
