In 2016, the newly-formed design studio DRAKE / ANDERSON asked us to be one of their main partners on the 2016 Kips Bay Decorator Showhouse.
"Jouffre exemplifies some of the finest craftsmanship in custom upholstery and window treatments in the industry. They have the extraordinary ability to bring ambitious design visions to life with exceptional attention to detail. Jouffre is a valuable and trusted resource for our firm and we look forward to each collaboration with Charles and his talented team."> Visit website
DRAKE / ANDERSON required the savoir-faire of Jouffre to create a luxurious and sophisticated bedroom being the unique expression of contemporary designs and traditional techniques.
For the New York based studio, Jouffre used the century-old technique of gainage on the crown molding and the baseboard. Jouffre's team also upholstered the wall in a traditional way with the same fabric, using two layers of padding for the most effective noise reduction and dust proofing. The Lyon based company always imports to the US all its supplies from France, including felt and poplar wooden slats to insure the perfect quality of the work, in accordance with the academic craftsmanship.
Jamie Drake and Caleb Anderson also trusted Jouffre to create two unique chaises lounge upholstered in a magnificent silk velvet by Rubelli.
Finally, Jouffre was in charge of manufacturing the silk lined draperies, roman shades but also bed treatment including canopy and valences.
