Besides, the opening of the flagship Paris showroom of Christian Liaigre places the renowned French designer’s latest collection in conversation with a selection of antiques, expertly curated by antiquities dealer and interior designer Florence Lopez. This partnership was really successful. As a matter of fact, Lopez and Liaigre were friends for many years and joined forces to create a space that would spotlight the rare antiques and highlight their unique charms while revealing the versatility of the luxurious yet understated designs for which the Liaigre brand is known. The resulting harmony of works from two designers showcases the timeless elegance
He attempts to incorporate the culture of the country or place into his designs. For example, in a modernist retreat on the Galician coast (belonging to Spanish fashion designer Adolfo Dominguez), Liaigre designed sliding screens in the woven willow used by local fishermen to make nets.
Also strong believer in fung shui, he strives to create an atmosphere of meditative serenity and consequently his services are in demand in Asia.
