COMPTOIR D’ORIENT is an ode to exoticism, a major theme in 18th century decorative arts.
Exotic flowers, pineapples and chinoiseries embody this attraction for the rest of the world, which began in the 16th century with imports from the Ottoman Empire, India, Persia and China. These distant lands fascinate Europeans who are seduced by this dreamy exoticism.
The bold combination of silks, prints, embroideries and epingle velvets in powdery but also powerful colors contrast with the traditional 18th century pastel tones we have been accustomed to.
