For over thirty years, Claude Cartier has hosted showrooms of contemporary furniture in Lyon with a passionate, luxurious and creative selection. The flagship of contemporary brands, often Italian, are exhibited there in preview. The peculiarity comes more than ten years ago with the creation of the interior design agency Claude Cartier Studio where, surrounded by her favorite architects, the decorator connects private or public projects successfully.
Manifesta is an innovative place dedicated to contemporary art at the service of businesses, a place of exchange that is both cultural and events that opens its doors next to the Museum of Fine Arts in Lyon. This place for exploring contemporary art had to be convivial and deviate from the codes of a classic art gallery. This idea of curve is highlighted, taking up the woodwork and architecture of the Museum of Fine Arts, as we can see with the work of the velvet curtains, the semi-circle of Terracota carpet or the choice ofluxury furniture. Everything is done to translate a certain roundness, which invites you to stay in the place.
Constantly on the lookout, Claude Cartier puts his singular gaze on a color, a personality, an object. Her inspiration is inscribed in her memory, far from the gaze of traditional codes, as a free woman she creates a world of her own. Claude Cartier hastens to arouse his curiosity through eclectic encounters, exhibitions, discoveries that she structures to make her decoration projects strong acts giving a very personal tone to her Inside exhibition space.
To give a more personal and creative tone to his projects, Claude Cartier creates Inside Gallery where she invites, in a scenographic dialogue, every six months, a furniture editor, a textile editor and a guest artist. There are exhibited the creations of the most daring and demanding publishers of the moment.
Hotel Particulier Boulevard des Belges is a stunning modern home created by the top interior designer, Claude Cartier, that brought the 70’s shades in a fresh and new way into this luxurious house in Lyon. Between green shades and bold notes of terracotta, she created an eclectic and contemporary home using these colors with a delicate touch she mixed to the gentle pastels, natural patterns and luxurious materials.
The challenge for Claude Cartierwas to integrate the modern designwith the classic architectural elements in the building and beautiful traditional details. She uses bold hues to highlight original architectural details, while artfully balancing them with more muted tones.
Raynouard Apartment, Paris
A superb Art Decobuilding, dream location close to Trocadéro, overlooking the Eiffel Tower, alongside Christian Liaigre and Humbert & Poyet also selected for this project. The modern dining room can be seen from the entrance through the Art Deco glass roof. What dining table could have been more interesting than the YBU by Christophe Delcourt? Like a sculpture, it brings the warmth of a free form and the wood material of brushed spruce mixed with deep black lacquer.
Villa avec Vue, Lyon
Gallerie Apartment, Lyon
At the top of one of the most atypical buildings in Lyon built in 1879 between Art Nouveau and Art Deco, Claude Cartier Studio signs the decorative and chromatic codes of this gallery apartment. Magisterial volumes, exceptional ornamental assets deliver from the start the future writing of an Arty script. These strong decorative codes such as a very graphic terrazzo floor, breathtaking fireplaces will be incredible assets.
