pendant lights and that painted threshold in Zohreh Daly's Michigan home. Put them together and this is what you get. They're hand-painted ostrich eggs, made by luxury-edition bookmaker Assouline. Each egg stands about 7" tall and is painted with a letter or a playing card symbol. With a price tag of $200 each, we won't be using these to spell out much more than an initial, but they do inspire us to find a DIY. Available at Librissime in Montreal.
