- Art & Design
We previously introduced our readers to the unique pieces by French design brand Pierre Augustin Rose. They like to refer to their collection as ‘antique pieces of the future’, and we can only agree with that vision.
Pierre Bénard and Augustin Deleuze are both antique dealers and tell us that they always had the same taste. Consequently, they were often associated with each other by their customers. When they met two years ago, a collaboration was bound to happen. They founded their design brand together with Nina Rose, who complemented the team perfectly with her great knowledge of materials and craftsmanship. The trio's main aim with their collection is to design the furniture pieces they always dreamed of but could never find anywhere. Another important goal is to spread French sophistication worldwide. A love of special places, an infinite curiosity about design and a fascination for 20th-century designers led to a beautiful collection in which many will find their liking.
Nina, Pierre and Augustin also exhibit parts of their personal art collection
These photos were taken at their gallery at 8 Rue Hérold in Paris' first arrondissement, next to the prestigious Place des Victoires. Interesting to know is that Nina, Pierre and Augustin also exhibit parts of their personal art collection, which makes it even more personal. The gallery is often updated according to new acquisitions by the founders and new pieces from their own collection. Time and again, the trio behind Pierre Augustin Rose manages to create a stunning collection, combining past and modern designs to create furniture pieces that immediately capture the imagination. Their knowledge of classic designs and high-quality materials ensures that these so-called 'antiques of the future' are timeless designs that can take any interior to the next level. Soft, natural colours are favoured at Pierre Augustin Rose, as are organic shapes and tactile materials. This, combined with the abundance of wood in the gallery, produces stunning results in which each piece stands out even more. We are convinced that the brand has a bright future ahead of it and are already eagerly awaiting more pieces from the brand.
