Coco Chanel's & The Duke's Luxurious Boxes...


"Elegance comes from being as beautiful inside as outside." ~ Coco Chanel




At Coco's apartment...
31 Rule Cambon ~ three vermeil boxes given to her by the Duke of Westminster.
Also found at the apartment is this antique walnut armchair (as known as the halfbath) covered with white satin.

Hope your week is lovely so far.

The chair is amazing! Thanks for sharing. I am always fascinated with Coco and all of her connections. She really had a head for business.
