There's no place like Maison

Margiela's oft-talked-about home collection, White Objects, is finally rolling out next month. (One guess as to the dominant color scheme.) As with many things Margiela, the pieces walk the fine line between awesome and head-scratching. In addition to the lamps (above, first spotted at the Milan Furniture Fair), there are also strange objets de d├ęcor that seem, to our surprise, downright useful. The embroidered cotton page calendar (below), for example, becomes a 12-piece napkin set when the year's over. Whether you ever bring them into contact with splatters or spills is up to you, but feel free to cross "napkins" off the January 2011 shopping list.
Available in October at Margiela stores worldwide; maisonmartinmargiela.com
