So much talk of London Design Festival left us no choice but to bring a bit of attention back to France, Taillardat more specifically, who have asked a select group of designers including Chantal Thomass, Nina Campbell, Pierre-Yves Rochon, Serge Mansu and Tristan Aeur to create an exclusive collection of 18th century France inspired pieces. The collection encompasses nine pieces which have been produced in very limited editions of five each, all signed by their respective designers. Prices on request from Taillardat but plan on forking over between $5,000 and $30,000 for one of these beauties. Modenus’ favorite has to be the “Temperance Hall” drinking cabinet by Nina Campbell which is now available at Pierre Frey.
Chantall Thomass’ Atout coeur (Loosely translated “With all my heart”) may be a bit much for this style sensitive girl but we have seen a trend towards more opulence in color, pattern and form whilst in London, so pourquoi pas?
And maybe not classically 18th century French design but a wonderful nod to the era paired with what? A nod to the Bois de Boulogne perhaps? Yes, this is actually one piece with the cocked armoire resting on a base of silver leafed resin columns. Another trend we’ve noticed in London as well, where art provokes interior design and interior design challenges art.
