THE NOMADIC OBJECTS OF THE TERRA COLLECTION
The Le Berre Vevaud agency unveils a range of nomadic objects with resolutely modern and timeless Art Deco lines. Candlesticks, vases, trinket dishes, ashtrays, and bookends all feature sleek graphic curves. Interior designers Raphaël Le Berre and Thomas Vevaud honour raw, natural materials with this functional and decorative collection that reflects their discerning style.
Made in collaboration with the Marbreries de la Seine, artisanal savoir-faire lies at the heart of the creations. They highlight the beauty of the material; the nobility of Emperador marble combines with the softness of travertine to create pieces of remarkable finesse.
The three-branched candelabra features Le Berre Vevaud iconic signature sphere at its centre, while the bookends stand out for their sculptural forms.
The elegantly sober trinket dish rests on a criss-cross base; its minimalist design adds style to even the simplest of hallways.
Inspired by the neoclassical period, the three vases are a striking addition to any interior, with pure lines and light tones. Two of them are fluted resembling Greek colonnades – the first on the base and the second on the sides. Finally, travertine and Emperador marble work in perfect harmony on the third model, contrasting the lightness of the former and the brown hue of the latter
For her first furniture collection, Romy Lesniowski was given carte blanche by Jean-Pascal Morvidoni, founder of M éditions.
The Antre collection makes unequivocal reference to the natural cave, but also to this silent place, as the young interior designer wanted her creations to be imbued with a sense of tranquility conducive to sharing and exchange. The curved shapes reinforce this intention, as does the functionality of the furniture designed.
The ensemble comprises of a table lamp, a console, trundle tables, a coffee table and a dining table – available in 2 and 3 different sizes respectively. While all the pieces are made from travertine, some are also combined with American walnut.
