Pylones is a French company that carries unique and funky designs, hand-painted gifts, and lots of gadgets for the home (ornaments, kitchen, bathroom, tableware, furniture, light fixtures, garden items). They have six storefronts in Paris, one in Avignon, seven in Japan, four in New York, and one in Hong Kong, along with both French and US Web shops. Pylones was always on my radar when I lived in France, and since then they've opened their NY shops! Pylones sells a lot of great, kooky gift items that are perfect for the upcoming holiday season. Most items are normal everyday items (i.e. toaster oven, snow scraper, table lamp) that are hand painted in colorful, almost psychedelic patterns and will be sure to get a laugh, regardless of who receives them.
