Born in Vendée in 1943, Christian Liaigre joined the Beaux-Arts and the decorative Arts in 1960. He later met Alberto Giacometti who made him discover Brancusi's studio. He opened his first design office in 1985 and then a showroom in 1990, in Paris, in the Montalembert hotel. In 1997, he worked in the hotel Mercier in New York, it is this project that will make known his talent. The work of Christian Liaigre is designed on the mixture of materials: linen, silk, bronze or wood, which he particularly appreciates. The use of these materials is part of his desire for craft tradition. He works with cabinet makers, carpenters and upholsterers on projects characterized by sobriety, elegance and refinement to the French, thus highlighting the spaces that he develops and decorates. In a quest for absolute perfection, Christian Liaigre plays on the visual and tactile effects of light and prefers the quality of his materials to quantity.
