We have a French connection in New York with Christian Liaigre debut on the Big Apple. Step inside one of Christian Liaigre‘s Paris showrooms and it is immediately clear why he is considered to be among the world’s top designers of furniture and interiors. His pieces are elegant and comfortable; his environments are spare, luxurious, and soothing.
Christian Liaigre has also opened a new showroom in New York at 34 East 61st Street.
Liaigre is all about refined work and an exquisite sense of beauty and class. Christian Liaigre furniture looks really amazing in the designer’s own Paris apartment that was just featured in the Wall Street Journal Magazine.
Liaigre’s work had been available in the U.S. only on a limited basis. That is finally about to change. Thanks to a major investment in his brand by Edmond de Rothschild Capital Partners, the New York flagship store openned on the Upper East Side townhouse consisting of a three-story showroom and a floor devoted to his design studio.
For the perfectionist designer, who opened his first studio in Paris in 1985, taking control of how his furniture collection is displayed and sold is critical to the future of his business. His goal with his new showrooms is to create environments that feel both casual and chic. In the New York townhouse, walls painted multiple shades of white will serve as a serene backdrop for Liaigre’s meticulously handcrafted furnishings.
Liaigre’s new studio in New York will also enable him to expand his interior design and architecture practice. His clientele has included Larry Gagosian, Karl Lagerfeld, and longtime patrons Rupert and Wendi Murdoch, for whom he has created two New York apartments, a sailing yacht, and a courtyard house in Beijing. “He is a true artist and collaborator,” says Wendi. “His designs are warm and classic, light and organic. His vision is sophisticated but never sacrifices livability.”
