A Decadent Debut Furniture Collection By One of Our Favorite French Duos
There’s something we really appreciate about the first collection of furniture by French interior designers Hauvette & Madani, and that is its unabashed embrace of a decadent party atmosphere, even in the midst of a pandemic. Inspired by a kind of 1920s salon / ’70s-era cocktail party vibe, the collection — called Amuse Bouche — includes furniture, lighting, and accessories made from luxe materials like alabaster, smoked bronze mirror, silk, and carved oak. It includes a tasseled pendant, a deep-pillowed sofa, a stainless-steel tray for whiskey, and one for smokes. One of our favorite pieces is a lacquered wood coffee table inset with a polished stainless steel valley at its center; it reminds us of a particularly opulent poker table. Each piece is handmade in a limited edition by French and Italian master craftsmen. If, like us, you’ve been coveting every inch of the Parisian duo’s interiors, it’s worth a deep dive into the collection.
