Who do we think we're kidding? Houses are places of clutter and chaos, so why must their finishings look so consistent and patterned? Not everyone will agree with this, and certainly not in every situation; however, pieces like these Mirror Puddles do introduce a playful quality into the home that recognizes the natural state of domestic mess.

Marie Dessuant made these undulating-edged tiles from stainless steel, shaping them so that they resemble the abstract forms created by small pools of spreading water. With depths of just 1 millimeter, the pieces can be fixed to the top of existing flooring or integrated into the laying of a new mosaic. While the Mirror Puddles might give the false impression of untidiness, more importantly, they create whimsical reflections of ceilings, walls, furnishings and even people.
