At the Le Cuir à Paris show, the INTERIEURS CUIR area recreated the workspace and bedroom of a mildly eccentric writer, entirely in leather. Two communicating rooms with very different atmospheres to express the dual personality of the writer and illustrate two styles:
All in white, with just a few notes of fuschia pink, it expresses a somewhat theatrical world, that is slightly quirky, dreamlike and feminine. The walls have been decorated in the 18th century style (panels, skirting boards, printed or engraved medallions). We can see a leather chimney, a baroque armchair, an embroidered carpet, an oversized chandelier, bookshelves, bound books, a shocking pink table, an accumulation of objects, and the ubiquitous computer covered in shagreen...
In Havana shades and subtle brown and olive tones, this is a 30s-inspired masculine designer interior. Leather floor tiles are laid in a parquet effect, a double bed and its mosaic head board stand on a platform, a screen-printed leather frame gives the impression of a painting, there are lamps, giant cushions, an ultra-light throw, and curtains with mashrabiya laser cut-outs.
Lacy, pleated, draped, encased, wrapped, taut, cut-out, perforated or printed, but always warm and sensual, leather adapts to all areas of the home, often with surprising results.
