Duvivier Canapés’ legacy of furniture making famously draws on traditional French craftsmanship, and its latest collaboration sees the esteemed manufacturer team up with Charlotte Julliard. The young designer embodies the inventive and innovative approach of the new generation of French designers, but still enamoured with traditional craftsmanship and materials, Charlotte brings a contemporary perspective to Duvivier, inspired by her experiences and observations around the world.
Duvivier launched the new Jules and Jean collections by Charlotte Julliard at Maison&Objet in January 2018. Like Duvivier, Charlotte has an unwavering passion for craftsmanship and design pieces with a subtle emphasis on the combination of materials: leather, fabric, wood, and glass.
Jules is a seating collection directly inspired by the tchanqué cabins on the Île aux Oiseaux in Arcachon Bay off the southwest coast of France. The platforms and pilotis that elevate the timber houses are expressed in the wooden base and legs of the modular seating system, which includes sofas, sectional sofas and armchairs, corner units, chairs, ottomans, table separators and coffee tables.
The seating can be upholstered in fabric, velvet or full-grain leather that showcases the character and beauty of each hide. When combined, the fabric and leather emphasise colour and texture and accentuate the padded frame and upholstered cushions.
Jean is a low multifunctional storage unit with a modern and elegant aesthetic to complement the Jules collection and other furniture pieces and styles. It too has a subtle emphasis on materials, combining oak or walnut veneer, smoked or etched glass doors and leather handles that hark back to Duvivier’s origins in the saddlery business.
