How adorable is this water coloring rendering of the Hermes La Maison home line?
I discovered the new Hermes La Maison home line when our wonderful Dedar rep came to our showroom and offices at the end of last year, sharing with us the most amazing textiles and wall coverings from this iconic brand. Now, it is not enough to swoon over their fashionable bags, scarves, throws, clothing, boots, sandals, watches (of which I am a huge fan) and baubles-more delightful goodies to ponder!
It wasn’t long after that I decided to recover an antique French chair in the Fil de Argents print (yes, I have a slight thing for chains) in the orange color way (I also have a slight orange thing, too). This chair made its way to a recently completed Arizona design project, but my obsession with the Hermes home line had only just begun.
Not only does the Hermes La Maison collection include textiles and wall coverings, it includes furniture and rugs as well (obviously of the ultra luxurious sort). I do not know the exact prices of all the items, but knowing the price point of Hermes, I can only imagine how many zeroes follow that leather sofa…
Take a look at some of my favorites from the collection!
3-seater Bench from The Pippa Collection
Square Table from The Pippa Collection
Occasional Table from The Pippa Collection
A bit about The Pippa Collection…
“This line of foldable and easy-to-move-around furniture was imagined by Rena Dumas and Peter Coles, in the Hermès spirit of “moving with elegance”. It combines the warmth and softness of wood (pearwood, ebonized maple or teak) with the suppleness and resilience of leather (fontanella cowhide, natural cowhide, clemence bullcalf, skipper buffalo).”
Armchair for Reading and Resting in Fabric and Leather, from The Matieres Collection
Fabric and Leather Sofa from The Matieres Collection
Storage Coffer from The Matieres Collection
A bit about The Matieres Collection…
“In the Matières collection, Antonio Citterio highlighted once more the functionality of furniture, and prioritized conviviality, comfort and harmony. This collection also emphasizes the sensory of the materials: leather, fabric, wood, metal.
During his visit to the Hermès Conservatory of Creations, the designer was particularly drawn to a saddle rack whose proportions and volume inspired him for the design of his armrests. The reading chair reclines into a relaxation position.”
2-seater Sofa from The Jean Michele Frank Collection
Club Armchair in Sheepskin from The Jean Michele Frank Collection…swooning…..
Folding Screen from The Jean Michele Frank Collection
Low Soleil Table from The Jean Michele Frank Collection
A bit about The Jean Michele Frank Collection…
“Jean-Michel Frank is an iconic designer from the Art Deco movement. He was the most influentialial designer and decorator of the 1920’s and 1930’s. The lines are rigorous and emphasized, shapes are simple yet refined. The materials used are versatile, from the rawest to the most sophisticated.
Sofas are compact, well-balanced and truly simple, iconic of Frank’s style.”
