I discovered Laurette at Maison&Objet in Paris and thought it was an appealing and well done furniture collection, with its nod to the 40′s-50′s and beautiful finish. It reminded me of a friend, desperate to find a children’s highchair matching her stylish living room. She bougth one at Ikea and repainted it in Farrow and Ball sophisticated grey. She could probably have found what she was looking for at Laurette. The Laurette beds, desks, chest of drawers and other home pieces will soon be available to order online.
