Pioneer of a modernity founded on the basis of furniture history since its creation by Christian Liaigre in the mid-1980s, Liaigre gave prominence to high quality craftsmanship: cabinet making, saddlery, bronze making, lacquering... This led to a “no frills style” with clean lines and perfect proportions.
As the head of the Studio since 2006, Frauke Meyer is currently embarking on a new chapter in Liaigre’s history, leading exceptional projects in Europe, USA and Asia. Houses, apartments, chalets, offices; Frauke Meyer and her team create interior architecture, with beautiful materials and design bespoke furniture that renders every project unique.

More specifically, the property is located in the so-called twenty-first arrondissement of Paris, which is an oasis of greenery on the edge of the Bois de Boulogne, near the Seine. The area has many beautiful city palaces, built from the second half of the nineteenth century, with quiet streets and impressive parks. The elegant façade houses a stately, modern interior, in which contemporary and primitive art feature prominently. The interior is organised around the artworks, which dictate the pace of the residence, so to speak.
Light and dark colours alternate in this residence, creating a beautiful play of light. The refined character of the residence is enhanced by the use of high-quality materials. Especially the many types of wood, from the smoked oak panelling of the staircase wall and the natural oak of the children's rooms to the spruce and cedar of the master bedroom and the walk-in closet on the second floor. Each room has a different atmosphere: the reception rooms are bright and the bedrooms more subdued, while the staircase, for example, is just very theatrical. The beautiful materials, thoughtful colour choices and, above all, the interesting artwork make this home a real gem, where you will stop every time to admire the furnishings with all their details.
