Butterflies are free (well, not quite)

A butterfly is a thing of beauty, a little shot of color dancing about in the air, and defying the imagination. Why not bring them down to earth and let them help with a little interior metamorphosis?

A Ladies' Writing Desk originally designed by Gio Ponti and decorated by Piero Fornasetti at Van den Akker Antiques. Available in white and black.

These little jeweled napkin rings look as if they are alight on your table, in cloissone and cracked glass, by Dransfield and Ross.

The otherworldy and most impressive Butterfly Mosaic, part of the Sheer Glass Collection by Sicis.

The Rain Rug, hand-hooked and available in a variety of shapes and sizes through Surya.

Osborne & Little's Painted Lady, in a linen/cotton blend.
Back-painted glass, handmade in Abruzzo, Italy, the Butterfly Platter by Vietri.

John Derian's Pressed Butterfly decoupage wall grouping, gives an entirely new meaning to an artful display.

The sweetly delicate Butterflies Table by Lenox.

"The butterfly is a flying flower, the flower a tethered butterfly." ~ Ponce Denis Ecouchard Lebrun
