THE OBSESSION // BRUNO MOINARD'S FURNITURE LINE
Hermès hired him to design their corporate headquarters. Cartier, YSL, and Chanel have hired him to design their boutiques. Karl Lagerfeld hired him to design his apartment. And now, the renowned French interior designer Bruno Moinard has made his exclusive, impeccable aesthetic available to the public through his very first furniture line, Bruno Moinard Editions.
Although the line launched in Paris last year, it's just now arrived in the U.S., and will be available exclusively through New York City showroom Avenue Road. In a recent interview with Wallpaper, the showroom's CEO Stephen Weishaupt said of the line, "When I saw [Bruno’s] debut in Paris, I was immediately drawn to the way he combined fine materials and creative forms. The collection has a warm modernism. [It’s] classically inspired and quite functional, yet totally unique."
The line is wide ranging, offering everything from lighting, to seating, to accent furniture, all fashioned from exquisite materials like horsehair, ebony, alabaster, and bronze. Highlights of the collection include the brass-framed Gumi sofa, the polished bronze Dugo stool, and the brushed oak Dinant table, all pictured below. If you're already on the fast track to New York... we're right there behind you.
