FAE: How did the Montaigne collection happen. Can you share the story with us?

Stéphanie Coutas: Montaigne collection started during a meeting with THG where they asked me to collaborate with them and create a collection that they wanted to launch during Milan’s show. I have had in my mind the idea of using marble as a faucet marble and I wanted it to be very minimalistic in the shape and yet sophisticated in the making. THG was the perfect partner with a high-quality finishing and a high level of craftsmanship. As you know I am very attached to French manufacturing and we chose a very typical marble “Grand Antique” which is a French career.

FAE: If you can enlighten us on THG Paris products and impressive craftsmanship? What encouraged you to select nude themes and elegant hues for the interior ? You have the wonderful ability to create magic with lights and recreate living spaces. Tell us about your unique projects and interior works.

Stéphanie Coutas: When building a private home project as well as on my hospitality projects, comfort and spectacular pieces have to blend in. I always design my private homes with the personality of the owners and the ability to invent a world of their own seen through my eyes. Houses or hotels have to be spectacular and cozy at all hours of the day and night, this is why working on lighting is very important on all of our projects.

FAE: What are your main design influences that motivated you over the years?

Stéphanie Coutas: My inspiration comes from my passion for contemporary art and all my various travels. I am very eclectic in my taste and I am not afraid of combining different worlds and styles.
