Inspired by // Galerie Jacques Lacoste Paris, France

For the past twenty five years Jacques Lacoste has been sharing his taste for the decorative arts of the twentieth century via his Parisian gallery space. Attracted specifically to the lighting of Serge Mouille, sculptures by Alexandre Noll, and the ceramics of Georges Jouve, Elisabeth Joulia, Pierre Szekely, and André Borderie. 

Galerie Jacque Lacoste has been the gallery leader in French design from the 1950s and is perhaps most famous for its works by Jean Royère, whose archives Lacoste acquired in 1997. His gallery on rue de Seine in the 6th arrondissement of Paris, showcases some of the worlds most iconic pieces of design.  

The gallery also participates in PAD Paris, PAD London, Biennale des Antiquaires and Design Miami in both Miami and Basel. Below we share some of our current favourite pieces from the gallery.
