Fashionable in mid-century popular design, cane is having a resurgence and, naturellement, Sarah’s take on it is typically sumptuous, elegant and unpretentious. Her latest collection, named after the Riviera - France’s famed stretch of the Mediterranean coast - takes us on a trip to the sun-filled playground. It tempts the senses: the saturated colours, tactile rattan, the warm and elegant lines inspired by mid-century designs. Combined, they speak of holiday happiness and refined charm.
Bien sûr, it’s what we’ve come to expect from this queen of chic, who is virtually a household name in her native France. Sarah Lavoine studied theatre in New York, designed the interior of the five-star Le Roch Hotel & Spa, and her father was Editor in Chief of French Vogue for 15 years. In my mind, she embodies the Parisian spirit: smart, chic and timeless. She stands for contemporary, liveable design - and she’s not afraid of a brightly-painted wall!
She launched her interior design business in 2002, and after taking the French design scene by storm, opened her first boutique in Paris in 2010. Late last year, she followed up with the Maison Sarah Lavoine concept store, perched in one of the oldest royal squares in Paris, Place des Victoires, and filled with her contemporary design classics.
Sarah Lavoine loves to mix styles, inspirations, time periods and textures– something we here at Bastille and Sons can’t get enough of, either. We love her dense colours, her plush, luxurious textures– think velvet, wood, brass and yes, cane. But more than anything, we love how she takes these often-stuffy, occasionally ostentatious elements and gives them a shot of fun, warmth and a welcoming spirit.
It’s why we’re thrilled to introduce her new collection, Riviera, to Australian design mavens who are always on the lookout for modern elegance. Take a look at this gorgeous collection here and see just why we’re mad for all things Maison Sarah Lavoine.
