The Ivy and Oak Collection is inspired by the picturesque hamlet built for Marie Antoinette at the palace of Versailles. The collection reflects the beauty of nature and the love of a country existence - or at least how the royal palace architects romanticized it at the whim of a young queen. The simple shape of each piece is inspired by the bucket Marie Antoinette carried as she pretended to be a milkmaid at her village refuge.
*Each Michael Aram metal object undergoes a series of grinding, buffing and polishing techniques. Variations or 'imperfections' in the product's finish are characteristic of the creation process. Due to this handmade nature, no two pieces are ever exactly alike.
