I had the luck to encounter beauty from a young age. My grand-father was a printer and had an eye for all that is proportions, a refined taste, and a passion for fine and polished work. During his spare time, he would visit old and dusty flea markets to find rare pearls. He had taught me why something was considered beautiful: light, architecture, a church’s stained glass windows, meticulous musical compositions, fine and unique furniture... behind all that hid not only intuition and emotion but also detailed and brilliant work of mastery.

Thanks to my other grand-father, I live a in beautiful manor house, in my family for many decades. The manor was erected in a Louis XVI style. I took the decision of restoring the place while respecting the style. Where to start? When looking closely, we can learn a great deal on patinas, colours, forms, materials... We begin by paying attention to chandeliers, to parquet floors, and furniture is not immune to our inspection: the seat height, the furnishing fabrics, the soft red colour filtering through a fine leaf of gold. That is why the timeless look is so interesting to us. Bringing a little eternity to passing time.
