Artist Carin Gerard's living room in California contains several large plaster remnants that were salvaged from the ceiling of an old French castle.
Aren't they wonderful?
Here are a couple close-ups:
Over in Oxfordshire, England, James Perkins became entranced with plaster remnants when he was a teenager and has been collecting ever since. He is now sharing his extensive collection in a country house that he has restored. Aynhoe Park is open for special events rentals.
How cool would that be to have a party amidst the history?
Nine new casts, taken from the originals, are now available at The Conran Shop.
