Collection Christian Lacroix



"Similar to our work with fabrics, we have dyed, printed, patched and superimposed all these beautiful woods to compose a joyous, rich and eclectic collection. Our Haute Couture origins naturally inspired us to print giant Guipure on Wengé, carve a Cornely embroidery pattern on Walnut, or cut out Acanthus leaves in precious wood to illuminate a large patchwork curtain.

Passementerie, the skilful interweaving of silk and gold threads, led us to create panels where woods – sometimes matt, sometimes glossy – intertwine together or with carved Staron to shape out skilful arabesques.
House “icons” such as the “Paseo”, “Cabinet de Curiosité” and “Incarnation” have found their rightful place, printed and with a patina on coloured woods, or even more simply applied on Walnut and Ash.

Lastly, as a tribute to the Couturier with whom we initiated this collection, a very pretty multicoloured “pixel” marquetry evoking the earthenware tiles found in the bodega’s of his native South, and a “Calligraphie” sandblasted on Oak, provide for an enigmatic and timeless signature."
