Inspired by art deco.
I he Monaco Living range by Classic Chair evokes the Art Deco period of exotic and exciting new modernism in the early 20th century. The innovations in things we take for granted today-motoring, aviation, ocean liners and global communication -made the world accessible, and mass production and new manufacturing techniques made the products of the world available to all. Design of the time was reflected in films, photography, fashion and perfumery, architecture and, of course, interior design. Exotic hardwoods and materials from all round the world were suddenly available, motifs from other cultures, the concepts of speed and streamlining, even the ability to make large and curved sheet glass: all these were embraced with exuberance and vigour. Furniture of the time was no exception, materials such as ivory, shagreen, chrome and nickel were incorporated into bold and glossy shapes, often highly theatrical, with motifs ranging from tropical paradise Islands to those from ancient cultures discovered in new excavations of the time.
The french provincial lifestyle.
fine quality traditional design from French Empire period, and from the English Georgian and Regency periods.
The Pierre Philippe range is inspired by classic French Country furniture, particularly from Provence in the south of French, and is made to the same exacting standards attention to detail. The designs are unique to us and are exclusively available only through Pierre Philippe outlets.
Provence includes the sunny and exclusive French Riviera, and extends up through mountainous areas with their famous “perche” villages – stone cottages literally perched on the steep hillsides – overlooking olive and orange groves and fields of lavender for the perfume industry.
Furniture from Provence is distinctive, with an
informal yet stylish and comfortable feel. Often painted in creamy pale tones and natural soft colours,it is perfect for modern interiors where a relaxed and casually elegant look counterbalances a busy lifestyle.
