i have to admit to being the fortunate owner of a few (okay, pretty many) pairs of christian louboutin shoes. my taste in shoes parallels my taste in furniture. simple, classic, yet modern designs. silhouette pieces.

‘a shoe is a shape, first and foremost:
if its structure is good, it can be enriched with all manner of details,
a house is the same.’
christian louboutin is renovating his house in paris. as part of the renovation, he is installing pyramid shaped skylights that were inspired by the silhouette of parisian rooftops. the pyramid skylights that enrich the structure of his house could be compared to the spikes that enhance the shape of his shoes. a trend setting, yet classic detail.
spikes also enhance the shape of jonathan browning’s anjou table. it seems that shoe shapes and furniture silhouettes are actually quite similar.
