Taking Inspiration from: Christian Liaigre
Deemed the ‘haute couture’ in a recent article by The Week – Renovation, we were suitably impressed by the interior designer’s recent showroom opening.
At Temple Tiles, we take most of our inspiration from nature, as well as the architectural brilliance of countries such as Sweden, Finland, Spain and France. We even named individual tiles from our marble range after cities across Europe that we particularly adore!
But Liaigre is one interior designer we love to keep our eyes on. Since opening his first showroom in Rue de Varenne in 1987, the designer has become renowned for his understated aesthetic, minimalist and luxurious style.
His unique French-inspired work can be seen in the homes of many famous names, including Karl Lagerfeld, Marc Jacobs and Calvin Klein.
The article on The Week goes into depth about the fantastic designer’s own sense of style – simplicity. And it gives us a very welcome reminder of just how powerful simplicity can be. His own company, now known as ‘Liaigre’ is aiming for clean, elegant and restrained proportions and finishes using “pure and noble materials”.
We love that interior design is a universal language and can act as a form of art. Pieces such as those created by Liaigre need to be showcased in a space that complements everything in it.
And it’s why, when we were designing our specially-curated range of mosaic and marble tiles, we didn’t want to just opt for a single design available in 10 assorted colours. Instead, we wanted to create originality.
Styles and designs that are each to their own, with selected finishes, colours and textures. So from understated simple mosaic designs, through to more bold, colourful and creative styles, there’s something that is bound to spark your imagination – whether you have a taste for simplicity like Liaigre, or have a more exuberant style that you want to make a special point of showcasing.
