Christian Liaigre

Credited with ushering in the second wave of Modernism, Christian Liaigre’s perennial focus is creating furniture that, like light, enhances a space but doesn’t push its presence. Like the work of contemporary Holly Hunt (who also once represented him), Christian Liaigre pieces are sparse in form, but dressed in the most resplendent of materials—dark, polished-to-a-shine wenge woods, creamy leathers, and neutral velvets. Indeed, upon first glance, these are modest pieces, but placed in an interior their inherent luxuriance is revealed.
