Profile

The French designer Christian Liaigre stumbled upon what would become the style of his first American store in the early eighties, when he began filling the empty first floor of his Parisian apartment building with pieces of his work. For his first U.S. flagship showroom, he stuck to the same philosophy of organizing individual pieces in an open space as though it were his home. Everything fits together immaculately in this four-story showroom. A cool, private basement space, complete with wet bar and brushed oak dining tables, is the ideal spot to flick through fabric swatches and discuss variations on the designs. That the space holds together well is no surprise, everything, including the sweeping spiral staircase leading up to the third floor, was designed by Liaigre; even the Talisman four-poster bed was originally created for his new apartment in Paris’s 7th arrondissement. All of the pieces can be custom built with the help of the studio team who will work on the top floor later in 2012. And shoppers needn’t be afraid to take a liking to any of the goods in the store — other than the delicate sprays of white coral that appear on lacquered bookshelves and coffee tables, collected by Liaigre and his family on their travels, absolutely everything is for sale.
