A few minutes later a woman comes to meet me wearing a broad smile.


In reading the project of Marron Rouge , she offers me to make a presentation of my products in her shop for all clients ( which could also be mine) .

Parrainages Inde association wishes you best grettings for 2013

Saturday 26 January 2013

As some you knows, I am closely linked to the association Parrainages Inde.  We reproduce here the greetings we sent to our donors in this begining of year

Association Parrainages Inde - Aidez un maman à scolariser ses enfants.




Dear Sponsors, Dear donors,

For this begining of the year, the entire team Parrainages Inde  wishes to present you the best for 2013 , and express gratitude for your support  to the lonely womans and their kids.

Here we started the year with a large meeting of sponsored women and their children. It was an opportunity to remind families the rules that govern our association, but the event was also happy with dances and songs.

Due to the dilapidated premises we occupy Pondicherry (Kamaraj Nagar), we will move to the end of February a new office, easily accessible to families and cleaner. We were in this office Kamaraj Nagar 8 years …

In 2012, thanks to your donations, we were able to continue our actions: establishment of regular English classes, distribution of mosquito nets to families with medical information, purchase of basic equipment for every house (fans, metal cabinets …). All houses destroyed or damaged by the cyclone  Thane have been repaired.

We continue to welcome single women and their children to the office and be attentive to their needs including education and health.

In early February, we will organize a meeting for adolescents with an indial social worker  to inform India about sex and the risks of early pregnancy. We wanted to implement this information due to the distress of sponsored girls, who were married, who had a first child and who regretted their choice today not to have pursued their studies.

The incoming projects for the beginning of the year 2013 are:

  • Information given by a lawyer on legal rights of women against violence.Indian society is moving and in this regard, here is   an article in the newspaper “Hindu” following the death of a young woman raped in Delhi.
  • Training for to how to do  manufacturing jewelry for fifteen women who could sell their production in their neighborhoods and improve their income.
  • Resumption of English courses during school holidays ….

All the light on Lampes de Sologne

Wednesday 16 January 2013

When I went a bit on the web I “stumbled” one day on a photo lamp I ‘ve already saw on Facebook and I immediately liked: design lampshades, foot wooden lamp in perfect harmony with lampshade and especially the end result is just beautiful.

I wanted to know more and I approached the designer of her lamps and this is what she tells us

Can you tell us a little about yourself and your territory Sologne?

Jean-Marc thank you for this interview! I’m Christine Salmon, married 40 years, 3 beautiful children … A life full ultra, devouring passions & Lampes de Sologne today! I am originally from Aquitaine and installed in Sologne Nançay for over 15 years.

Sologne is my adopted home, a forest region located in the central region between the Loire and the Cher. Mysterious legends rocked the Sologne area is rich and diverse. Forests, ponds, marshes, moors compose, oaks and pines are everywhere, the fog prompted sometimes. Sologne is a magical place where nature, culture & traditions mingle discreetly, to unwind and recharge! This place has been a revelation for me.

MR: Why Lampes de Sologne?

It is primarily a love story with the timber. The wood is present all around me & this since my childhood and even more since I’ve been with my husband who is carpenter and frame specialist as a carpenter  companion of duty. Timbering, exposed beams, windows, furniture, lighting, wood is a hyphen decorative natural, raw, reassuring evident between the house and the forest that surrounds me.

It is then a passion for interior design that I care, think, polishes soon as my time permits. I enjoy my designs & classic kinds. I love to hunt in fleas markets, I tinker, I assemble, I associate local handicrafts to create unique worlds. Sologne is my playground, I like to highlight its mystery and grandeur in my creations. Lampes de Sologne are somehow the cornerstones of what I reported my walks in the woods in my bundle inspirations.


MR: How & with what are they made?

I manufacture my lamps by hand in my workshop. The lamp bases are cut from old oak beams. I spent several days looking for the perfect piece of wood from beams, trusses or antique trunks in the forest. I love working on unique designs that offer aesthetically pleasing natural detail. I play with the grain of the wood, its ribs, its nodes, its cracks, texture …

MR: Do you make your feet lamps and lampshades?

I make the feet of lights and draw the blinds. Even if I happen to make some shade, I make most models by a local designer lampshades, recognized for the quality of its fabrics and expertise. It uses some high-end fabrics, natural linens, embroidered some models to the delight of some clients and is always looking for unique designs & surprising.

MR: What templates lamps do you make?

All templates are imagined. Today I present my catalog in small and large models: lamps, lamps & floor lamps lounge. Their size varies between about 40cm and 1 meter 50.

MR: Where can I find Lampes de Sologne?

Currently on the site . My workshop in Nançay (18) will soon be available as a showcase & can therefore accommodate my clients a few weeks. I am also looking for partners who would like to present my lamps Paris & Orleans, I want to call 😉

MR: If you were to give us 3 good reasons to rob the shop lights Sologne, what would they be?

In addition to helping heart that must lead you to contact me to book the model you like, there are actually other reasons that should encourage you to splurge on a lamp Sologne. You ask me three good reasons, they are:

1. + The Artisanal (all models are unique!)

2. + The French manufacturing (lamps are manufactured entirely in Sologne)

3. + The environment (recycling of wood, with little or no transportation, treatment with beeswax …)

I can not help but add a fourth!

4. My lamps are made with the utmost care and have done so far and customers happy!

         Do not hesitate to contact Christine she can even make custom lamps

Mes petits cadeaux écolos 100% Home made by Sophie Macheteau

Saturday 15 December 2012

Early December, I received a package in the mailbox of Marron Rouge.

I am still a a true kid and I’m excited to have a package and do not know what’s in there.

Trrrr (drumroll) what in the package …. !!?

A book

A book with a beautiful cover

A book with two names that speak to me:Sophie Macheteauand Marie-Noëlle Bayard.

I put these two ladies in relationship and they make stuff behind my back without telling me ….  !?.



This book is ” MES PETITS CADEAUX ECOLOS 100% HOME MADE ” BySophie Macheteaupreface and Marie-Noëlle Bayard.

Very nice  meeting I had about 18 months ago, when I was looking for a press agency. We had agreed to Marron Rouge. And from these 18 months I get to know this woman full of heart, bio-Epicurean, funny and very creative. She creates itself (fine) jewellery in  recycled paper and arranges a press conference with her shock team delighting your taste. Energetic, positive and human  are three adjectives that I would attribute to Sophie!

Besides, we will let her speak :

 Sophie can you give us a brief overview of your career?

A very eclectic career that has shaped my character and shaped my vision: I made three 8!!

8 years in Film Event

8 years as head of training in a sign very cross about the naturalness

8 years as head of a green advertising agency

 From where do you get the taste for Recycling?

The Recycling is not an end but a unique and infinite artistic expression. What I like is from a harmless object like a magazine and see infinite possibilities of transformation and metamorphosis. Marvel again at 41 years of little things in my eyes is a luxury.


Yes I am both proud and gourmet gourmet be. My winning trio: fruit freshly picked red, my tiramisu pink / matcha and my delight insider (all chocolate).

 The environment funny, but why?

I would not say a pleasure but a necessity, awareness long that I owe to my parents.

 When you find the time to write this latest book?

Evening, night and weekend

 What made you laugh the most in preparing this book?

Nothing, I do not laugh (LOL)
