THANK YOU FOR YOUR REQUEST
We will be in touch soon.
Christian Liaigre, the French interior design legend and entrepreneur, has died at the age of 77. Born in La Rochelle, a small coastal town in the West of France, the interior design Hall-of-Famer honed his skills at the Beaux art and then at the Arts décoratifs.
His designs were now to have simple, sincere and fluid lines, allowing the beauty and balance of the design speak of itself. An expert of modern minimalism, Christian Liaigre rose to the prominence in the design industry during the 1980s with his perfectly proportioned designs.
Celebrities like Larry Gagosian, Calvin Klein and Karl Lagerfeld went to Liaigre’s showroom in Paris, on Rue de Varenne, when seeking out a piece of high-quality, French craft furniture.
Christian Liaigre was known for his redefining modernistic projects and for being pioneering the use of dark wood, leather sofas, and the luxurious cream, brown and grey palette integral to stylish unique design interiors.
Dating back before the conception of his company, Christian Liaigre was inspired by the textures and tones of the equestrian world: he often favoured wood, leather and bronze, and his work reflects the richness of these same materials. More than thirty years later, the team at Christian Liaigre’s firm is still producing stunning items, keeping heir founder’s design ethos alive.
