Founded in 2010 by Anne Jacquemin Sablon, the gallery specializes in contemporary furniture and decorative arts, and since its inception has exhibited early pieces by architect Tristan Auer and Xavier Lenormand, winner of the Prix Liliane Bettencourt pour l’intelligence de la main. The coherence of the selection of designers represented by the gallery is based on the balance between minimal design, French style and the excellence of numerous skills at the service of designers’ aspirations. The gallery’s collections emphasize noble materials, strong lines and French manufacturing by excellent craftsmen. In 2015, the gallery moved into a former fashion boutique from the 1920s, located between the Palais-Royal and the Louvre.
The gallery offers furniture, lighting and decorative art designed by emerging and established contemporary artists such as Alexandre Labruyere, Atelier George, Samuel Latour, Bénédicte Vallet, Claire Cosnefroy, Charlotte Besson-Oberlin, Fabien Barrero-Carsenat, Nicolas Desbons, Vernon, Marion Mezenge and Vadim Garine, as well as Atelier Linné. The designers are all selected according to demanding criteria: their vision, their talent and the impact they can have on contemporary design and lifestyle.
Anne Jacquemin Sablon is also keen to preserve the long-term relationships that have marked the gallery’s history, whether with Tristan Auer, Garnier & Linker or Isabelle Azema.
The gallery is also the exclusive publisher of furniture and lighting designed by architect Maxime Old. Among the designer’s 3,000 drawings, it selects and edits pieces from the 50s to the 80s, never produced during the artist’s lifetime.
The gallery has its own design office, which enables it to respond to calls for specific decorating projects and to create furniture and lighting fixtures, thus encouraging exchanges and encounters between artists. These various collaborations give rise to one-off pieces for collectors, as well as custom-made pieces tailored to the wishes of architects and customers. This commitment to collective creation enables artists to strengthen their network, their know-how, their creativity? thus fostering the emergence of a passionate tribe.
The gallery introduces its artists to French and foreign private collectors and supports them in developing their careers towards institutional and international recognition. It is regularly invited to take part in international fairs and shows such as PAD, Collectible Bruxelles or Dubai Design Week.
