Review - Papier de Maison Mixes the Old with the New in Their Decorative Collection of iPad and Kindle Cases


Papier de MaisonEven though new technology, like the Kindle and iPad, puts convenience and speed at our fingertips, sometimes a simple pad of paper and a writing utensil work just as well...if not better!

For instance, if I'm right in the middle of checking my email and I suddenly remember that I need milk from the grocery store, I don't want to scramble for my grocery list app right then.  It's easier in that case for me to jot down what I need on a piece of paper.  Unfortunately, there never seems to be a pen and paper handy when I need them...until now!

I reviewed the Marche de Fleurs Kindle Cover which retails for $20.00 and the Marche de Fleurs iPad Cover which retails for $30.00.

Decorative iPad and Kindle Cases with Matching Notepad and Stylus Included

iPad CasePapier de Maison has created an entire line of decorative iPad and Kindle cases that include matching pads of paper as well as a corresponding pen/stylus.  Now, no matter where you're at or what you're doing, you will always have the best of both worlds at your fingertips.  What I really loved about the Papier de Maison line of protective cases is that each side is completely interchangeable, meaning that the pad of paper can fit on either the left or the right side of the case so as to best correspond with your writing hand.

The included pen/stylus is also a nifty idea.  Open the cap to reveal a ballpoint pen and close it again to serve as a stylus.  I had the pleasure of reviewing the Marche de Fleurs pattern in both the iPad and Kindle cases and love the large floral design coupled with the French wording on the magnetic flap.  It's such an elegant theme and instantly gives your gadgets a classic, feminine feel.

Kindle CaseOne of my favorite features of both the iPad and Kindle cases from Papier de Maison is that the cases are foldable, making them truly hands free.  The iPad case is designed to hold the iPad 2 and the new iPad 3, though if you don't mind the flap crunching in just a bit, the first generation iPad will also fit.  As for the Kindle case, I'm afraid that my current model might be a little too antiquated for the new Kindle case from Papier de Maison, for when I tried it, the case seemed to be just a tad short.

It's not a big difference though, so if you don't mind your older Kindle sticking out just a fraction, then I would still recommend the Papier de Maison case.  If you have one of the newer models (where the full keyboard isn't located below the screen), then the Kindle case will fit perfectly.

Take a look at the video below to see the Papier de Maison decorative iPad case in action:

If you'd like to finally have the ability to keep a pen and paper right next to your Kindle or iPad, while at the same time giving it a lot of elegance and style, then be sure to check out the six new designs from Papier de Maison.
