Not many trips I do go unrecorded by a stone memento. I prefer the round egg-like shape, sea-tossed smooth. I even managed to pocket one in Milan (I write the place & date in pencil on mine to jolt my memory of when & where). I enjoy seeing them incorporated into new & old interiors: in Italy & Greece on floors & walls, at The Haymarket Hotel or a Sue Lawty site specific wall mount. For an oversized art installation look at the marble pebbles displayed at Naoshima’s Benesse Museum
. If these are a little out of your reach, try the lacquered ‘pebble’ coffee table from Driade or simple line up your collection on a window sill.
