The Maison de Objet design fair in Paris, France is always packed with new, groundbreaking ideas. This year, the featured Archaic Shelters by Elizabeth Leriche were an ironic blast from the past.

Archaic Shelters is an homage to our primitive selves. Elizabeth Leriche fills the space with animal skins, stone-carved furniture, and a stuffed buffalo to emphasize nature and the influence it has on our private lives.

Implications - Elizabeth Leriche knows that privacy has become a luxury in society that moves so fast. Leriche says that many people "want to slow things down, get back in touch with nature, with the seasons--and with the animal world." Her crafty caveman interiors definitely hit the spot.
