The decorator from Nice entrusted five craftsmen labeled EPV (France’s Living Heritage Company) for the creation of his space: glass-maker Bernard Pictet, cabinetmakers Ludwig & Dominique, upholsterers Jouffre, marble worker Fochesato and the Manufacture de tapis de Bourgogne.
Jouffre dressed the space in 344 sq ft of "Monsieur"’ curtains. These designs are an original creation from the Jouffre workshops, developed by several collaborators as part of a research and innovation project titled “inventing the curtain of tomorrow”. This unique and meticulous work highlights the expertise of the Jouffre ateliers. This collaborative work also lead to the creation of the corresponding "Madame" curtain. The latter, more feminine, breathes lightness with its colors and contemporary interpretation of the pleats that were previously featured on smock dresses.
The “Monsieur” curtain is more formal, masculine and vertical; inspired by the skyscrapers of New York. The seamstresses hand-sewed fine woven trimmings to support the small contemporary cartisanes. These elements were made by Declercq Passementiers.
Jouffre installers used their expertise in wall-upholstery as well. Rubelli fabric panels adorned the walls of the stand. Between each of them are small panels clad in faux leather. Finally, above, a cornice sheathed in faux leather ran along the lengths of the walls. Moreover, two molding doors were covered with velvet by the craftsmen.
The visitors to the exhibition were charmed by the harmonious curves of the sofa Panthère, designed by the French interior design studio Studioparisien, and developed and manufactured by Jouffre workshops in a fabric from Dedar. They also had the chance to admire the booth from the seat of the armchair realized by the Lyon-based upholsterers. Finally, these two pieces of furniture were decorated with decorative cushions fabricated by Jouffre in fabrics from Dedar and Toyine Sellers.
