Good news for Liaigre fans. The renowned French interior design company opened a new concept at the Rue du Faubourg Saint Honoré, a two-kilometre-long street bursting with famous art galleries and prestigious auction houses.
Liaigre set their eyes upon number 77, which was formarly occupied by Steinitz, an antique dealer specialising in 18th century furniture and art. Liaigre kept the authentic facade, but brightened up the interior with his contemporary designs. No less than 800 square meters got a huge Liaigre makeover, spread over four floors. Frauke Meyer, creative director at Liaigre, did not want to make a typical showroom here, but rather create an experience that encourages visitors to discover the place. Each piece of furniture was hand-drawn in the Liaigre studio itself and then produced by real craftsmen. The design team mainly chose refined materials such as cedar, oak and bronze. We also find quite a few works of art with a rough-around-the-edges appearance. This makes the new showroom a perfect balance between old and new, sophistication and craftmanship.
On the ground floor, visitors are introduced to the creative world of Liaigre. From the first floor up, the building is divided like a house: a living room, dining room, library and garden terrace. A staircase leads visitors to the second floor, where they can find a family room and a bedroom with dressing room. Twice a year all four floors will get a makeover, focussing on Liaigre's newest design collections. Upon arrival on the top floor you’ll find a material-library and a studio where unique pieces and thematic exhibitions will be on show. Planning a trip to Paris? This is the place to be for design lovers!
