Meet Maison de Vancances' unique approach to timeless home décor


Partners in life and in work, Nicolas Mauriac and Emmanuelle Fouks are the creative minds behind Maison de Vacances’ chic range of French home décor products. They take a free spirited and unconventional approach to designing their textiles and we love how they aren’t afraid to step away from the confines of symmetry and perfection. They believe your home décor should take cues from your mood, experiences and emotions. They don’t believe in following any mass-produced trends, instead, each piece they design is honest, unique and tells a story of the artisan skills that were used in its creation.

We spoke with them about their passions, inspirations and dreams for the future
