Discover plenty of new things from Paris

Here, we take you to Paris. We were there at the beginning of the year. Paris not only inspires us to make new FROHSINN purchases but also sparks fresh ideas and a joyful sense of living. The grandeur of the city continually unveils little paradises and brings great joys to the day.

We present two of these paradises here. One is the Atelier Féau Boiserie, where noble boiserie from different style periods is showcased. The Atelier Lison de Caunes practices wonderful craftsmanship, with which the Atelier Zurich Interior Design Projects has been collaborating for some time. Here, furniture is created, adorned with surfaces in a kind of marquetry technique—using straw. Additionally, you will get to know Martyn Lawrence Bullard, who decorates the residences of Hollywood stars in the most glamorous way.

Come along for a visit to thr studio

The premises of the workshop of the artisan Lison de Caunes are located on a small street, scattered throughout. Almost all employees therefore have their own studio, so to speak. Handmade straw marquetry is produced here. This French tradition dates back to the 17th century. It later fell into oblivion. The fact that this noble, elegant technique found its way back into the present is largely thanks to Lison de Caunes. After her studies, she devoted herself to the art of straw marquetry, thus continuing the tradition of her grandfather, the interior designer André Groult (1884-1966). In her studio, where she still works herself, she has been creating her own line of furniture since 2015. Her clients include such exclusive brands as Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels, Invisible Collection, and many more.

Interesting family history: Lison de Caunes' grandfather, André Groult, was married to Nicole Poiret, the sister of the famous fashion designer of the 1920s and 1930s, Paul Poiret. One of their two daughters is Benoîte Groult, known for her scandalous novel "Salt on Our Skin." Benoîte is in turn the mother of Lison de Caunes.

In the interior design project for an exclusive apartment, this impressive dining table plays a central role. We had it custom-made in bright red by the Atelier Lison de Caunes. Strong colors are important in this apartment, where coziness, modernity, and a love for fine craftsmanship come together. Our FROHSINN tabletop accessories are the perfect complement to this bold statement.

Atelier Féo Boiserie

Where old craftsmanship meets new design

During the Paris Design Week in January, we visited an exciting exhibition at the "Atelier Féo Boiserie". The impressive wood paneling served as a backdrop for the most exclusive design furniture from the "Invisible Collection". The location, the furniture, and the interplay of different styles were very stimulating and inspiring. We are also proud that the ceramic table MONTCEAUX by Pierre Gonalons was exhibited, which has been in our assortment since 2023.

Are you familiar with the "Invisible Collection"?
When Isabelle Dubern, one of the founders of the "Invisible Collection", dreamed of owning a Papa Bear armchair by Pierre Yovanovitch, she realized that this was not possible. The chair was exclusively produced as part of an interior design project. In exchange with her friend Anna Zaoui, the idea emerged to give such wonderful design pieces, which remain hidden and inaccessible to the public, a place. Soon Lily Froehlicher joined the project and within a short time, the collection gained a large digital presence and opened showrooms in London, New York, and Paris. With the exhibition, the "Invisible Collection" celebrated its fifth anniversary.

You can never have enough glamour

For the legendary singer and actress Cher, interior designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard transformed the facade of a demolished Indian palace into her pied-à-terre in Los Angeles. He adorned Ru Paul's living room with a total of 26 disco balls, and for Khloé Kardashian, he created a dressing room from three bedrooms. His clientele includes the beautiful, the wealthy, and the famous. Naturally, his own properties in Los Angeles and Palm Springs are equally impressive. Originally from Britain, Bullard initially aspired to be an actor. However, upon arriving in Hollywood, he captivated everyone with his apartment, furnished with flea market finds. It's no wonder he quickly garnered one design commission after another. He rose to stardom with his unique star style, featuring in television shows like "Million Dollar Decorators," establishing himself as one of the most renowned interior designers in the world.

Be inspired by his latest book, "Star Style," available online and at our flagship store.

Restaurant OMA im Hotel Château de Fleurs

And here's another insider tip . . .

That I not only enjoy good food but also restaurants with fantastic interiors probably doesn't surprise you. We discovered a wonderful place where both come together beautifully this January in Paris: The Korean restaurant OMA at the Hotel Château des Fleurs. The food there is excellent, and thanks to the elegant interior design by Quintana Partners Studio, one enjoys an exclusive living room atmosphere and unforgettable visual delight.
