The quest. That's what it's all about. 

To discover, to be surprised. To fix upon the material, a detail on a door, the color of a flaking wall. To find excellence in handiwork, quality in materials, durability in an object. To search here and there where craftsmanship is best exerted.

To bestow all its human character to an object and make every project unique. To bear and own one’s dreams. To make them come true. To be attentive.

Our lives are a multitude of moves and choices which we forever reinvent. Our ambition is to give them beauty, usefulness and respect.

The precision of the vision. That's what it's all about.

To bear arts and crafts a passionate and deferent love.

To respect the hand's work, the artist's eye, the object's soul. To design, upcycle, imagine, materialize, use and glamorize. To let thoughts express through form while giving it substance.

                               while favoring human beings.

A meaningful career...

Sourcing is a passion, a matter of curiosity, my daily way of life. 

I started scissoring my mother’s interior design magazines when I was a teen, sorting out everything in small notebooks with a variety of titles. These were the founding ground for an image bank that I would later keep with me

at all times, expand and evolve all along my life: “bathroom”, “living-room”, “wall colors”, “kitchen materials”, “plaids and cushions”… I fill these notebooks with a multitude of pictures I take anywhere, anytime.

After a fantastic five-year initiation at Kenzo where I developed esthetics, I made an intuitive, instinctive move to Hermès. During my seven-year stay, I trained my vision and this is how the house’s values made full sense to me: learning storytelling through trades, the importance of customers, whether VIPs, amateurs or daydreamers, and the process of creation.

This was followed with various other encounters. I learned to pay attention and to understand desires, the wishes that some expressed and others not. And in the end, making improvements in materializing and passing things on.

Driven by the need to keep on learning, I left for Christian Liaigre, as I found inspiration in his talent and his love for Japan and the equestrian world. I was then honored that Déborah Liaigre, who was captivated by my color and material notebooks, trusted me and asked that I join her team. A few years later, Christian Liaigre’s departure from the House put me in charge of continuing his work by pursuing his quest for new talents. Thanks to my sharp eye and to Christophe Caillaud and Frauke Meyer, who renewed their trust in me, I set out to unearth artists and artisans, both near and distant.

 

Nourished by this rich and diverse history,

I am now focused on developing my very own world, with projects that echo with my values and my evolution. In the field of interior design, I offer to source materials, to source and design accessories and unique pieces, to design upcycled objects and to develop visual merchandizing.

 

As I have a passion for natural, rare and local materials, I like discovering small-scale artisans, such as the one who takes the time to fashion items with his bare hands, in a humble and discreet manner, or the one who, out of awareness and sustainability, chooses in a meticulous way the materials she will use. This man, this woman, both demanding and sincere, are people who do not profligate with materials and rather act with frugality in order to limit unnecessary scraps.

I am aware about my opportunity to work with them and to develop over time such a relationship based on enduring trust and respect. It is with talented men and women that I want to move on, to imagine, interpret and bring life to my customers’ interior dreams.

As a person who respects the environment, upcycling is also part of my creative approach.
