Lately it seems as though the word “marble” works its way into almost every conversation I’m having. “I really like the pink marble along this staircase,” a friend said to me last weekend in a building downtown. Yesterday a colleague in the office told me that she “spent her weekend hanging out at architectural salvage yards looking for marble slabs.” All this talk made me remember one of my favorite design details spotted on my trip to Paris last spring. 

When I stopped by to visit designer Clarisse Demory, I couldn’t help but admire her kitchen setup, which features a marble rolling pin suspended from the lower brackets of her kitchen shelf in her Paris flat. Demory uses two pieces of sparkly stretch cord, but we can think of other options, too: rawhide ties, rustic rope, for example. To see more of the apartment, go to Done/Undone with Clarisse Demory in Paris.
