Started at LONDON’S famed retailer The House of Fraser in 2010 and inspired by the European 20th century, artist’s ateliers from the likes of Jean Arp and Brancusi, and small batch production, Lemieux Et Cie celebrates the community of artisans that make the product possible. Whether seen in the evidence of the hand or the imperfection of the materials, Lemieux Et Cie is about the collaboration and celebration between designer and the craftsperson behind each piece.
Drawing from almost a decade of doing business in Europe, designer Christiane Lemieux and her team opened up her archives and brought to life inspiration from the historical, the found and the collected. The collection features raw materials, sun-bleached accents, dry finishes, white, black and neutrals, and antique metals. With details like purposely distressed leather and hand applied finishes, the collection reflects the organic evolution of interiors.
