Description

The stone pines of the Villa Borghèse in Roma serve as the guiding aesthetic for this light sofa by Noé Duchaufour Lawrance for fellow French design house La Chance. The lattice of a forest's branches is translated by the metal structure and back cushions, suggesting a restful landscape both visually and physically.

It's no wonder that Noé started out as a sculptor. His work embraces the ideals of "niwa," the bijoux garden at the heart of a traditional Japanese home. Noé is dedicated to reviving "the notion of 'alive' or 'living'" in the objects and spaces he designs, akin to an organic form growing with use and its user.

This approach made him a natural to collaborate with La Chance, the new Paris-based design house emphasizing furniture, lighting and rugs with a "strong personality" made from "noble, durable and natural materials" and all in "European human-size facilities" Got to love that.

La Chance is also entrepreneur Jean-Baptiste Souletie and architect Louise Breguetbeen, who got together in life and work because of, well, la chance! The French duo have lived in India and China; designed offices in London and built homes in Haiti; and have lent their know-how to established luxury companies and start-ups firms.

La Chance launched at the 2012 Milan Salone at Tom Dixon's MOST, a 5-building design world in Milan's National Museum of Science and Technology. The debut collection was based on the concept of Jekyll & Hydeone item, two moods (hence Noé offering Borghese in either shades of greens or monochromatic blacks/greys). We zeroed in on their colorful exhibition inside the railway hall, and it was love at first sight.

Brand

La Chance

The founders of La Chance, the Paris-based design house, have united talent from the bustling “new wave” of global design—10 designers hailing from 9 different countries—in a collection marked by contemporary French élan. And entrepreneur Jean-Baptiste Souletie and architect Louise Breguetbeen are partners in business and in life, as they say. Between the pair, they have lived in India and China, designed offices in London and built homes in Haiti, and lent their know-how to established luxury companies and emerging start-ups.

When the 20-something couple first met, they discovered they were both inspired by a love of the Art Deco movement, when objects were valued for function as well as their decorative attributes. That spirit imbues the modern sense of luxury and uncontrived manner of of their collection of furniture, lighting and rugs. “We like things to be warm, colorful, and good quality,” Louise says. “And in terms of style, you can see all the workings of the furniture, even the upholstered pieces, as we have nothing to hide.”
