In 2017, Rinck is consulted with the primary objective of sublimating this exceptional place and allow it to find a delightful spirit, with 18th century inspiration and a Gustavian touch.

Thu, Oct 10th 2019

On October 10th from 12-5pm, Boundary is hosting an open house at the Boundary showroom in LA featuring furniture from the Sé collection and rugs from La Manufacture Cogolin, with guests Pavlo Schtakleff (Founder and Director of Sé) and Sarah Henry (General Director of La Manufacture Cogolin), from London and Paris, respectively.
The spirit of craft in design is very much alive, and very much connects, these 2 brands, and Pavlo and Sarah are the reasons this symbiotic nature exists in both collections. From working with individual designers yearly and innovating manufacturing processes as Sé does, to working hand in hand with designers on a decades old, hand-operated loom to create beautiful and singular modern patterns as La Manufacture Cogolin does, both Pavlo and Sarah can speak directly to how craft, and making, shapes not only the ethos of their companies but shapes the collections and pieces as well.
They will have Sé furniture and lighting designed by Ini Archibong, Jaime Hayon, and Nika Zupanc installed, as well as La Manufacture Cogolin rugs by India Mahdavi, Stéphane Parmentier, and their newest collection in collaboration with Studio Glithero.
Boundary is happy to accomodate all guest and would love to introduce you to these 2 people, who embody the essence of the Boundary ideology. They can also speak directly to customization as it relates to any projects you are currently involved with.

Studio Jean-Philippe Nuel Signs the Interior Design of the Restaurant Imperial Treasure Paris

Studio Jean-Philippe Nuel Signs the Interior Design of the Restaurant Imperial Treasure Paris
Thu, Oct 3rd 2019

The interior design of the Imperial Treasure restaurant was conceived in the continuity of the concept design of hotel residence La Clef Champs-Elysées. It offers a unique experience to allow customers to feel at home and experience Paris differently.
Independently run, the restaurant is open to both hotel guests and Chinese gastronomy enthusiasts, and its main entrance lies directly on Rue Bassano.
The decorative concept of the restaurant is conceived in the image of Parisian apartments where several rooms are articulated around a corridor-reception. These rooms, designed like lounges, host a lounge-bar area and several dining areas including a private one. The domestic character of the decoration can be seen in the choice of curtains, the presence of large mirrors and marble fireplaces.
The two symbolic colors, black and white, predominate to create a timeless elegance whose assumed modernity is gathered in the reflections of the ceilings and the graphic games with the materials, the floor and the furniture.

Fermob Announces 3 New Colors at Maison&Objet Exhibit

Fermob Announces 3 New Colors at Maison&Objet Exhibit
Wed, Sep 18th 2019

At M&O, French outdoor furniture brand Fermob emphasized the debut of three new colors: Frosted Lemon, Clay Grey and Ice Mint; presented in full by an astonishing wall scenography. Available in 2020, Fermob gives us a glimpse into next year's colors and collections to hit the market.
Frosted Lemon is powerful pastel, which awakens the color chart and makes other shades more radiant with its luminosity. Just like the famous sorbet, Frosted Lemon provides freshness and pep. It reminds us of summer and sunshine, refreshment on shaded terraces and the intensity of life.
As close as you can get to natural materials and taking its qualities from them, Clay Grey is the perfect binder. Essential and timeless, this warm grey goes with all the colors of the color chart to create mosaics of shades that are enhanced by its powdery appearance
A combination of white, blue and green is the subtle cocktail that created Ice Mint. It is an assertive shade, which blends well with the clear-cut colors of the Fermob color chart. A tone with subtle variations: tropical or vintage, Italian or Scandinavian atmospheres, Ice Mint calls to mind wide open spaces or a cozy lounge

The Tyché Mirror by French designer Emilie Lemardeley

The Tyché Mirror by French designer Emilie Lemardeley
Tue, Sep 17th 2019

Named after the Greek goddess of chance, fate and fortune, the Tyché mirror brings color and character to reflection. The mirror is made of different tinted layers of mirrors that are cut precisely to create a flat but dynamic piece of art.
Tyché offers two different designs that remind of animal, like a bird gliding through the air or a fish moving in water. Both inspire reverie and add an intriguing shape to the primary function of the object. Beyond what you would expect from a piece of wall decor, Tyché brings life and movement on surfaces. Lemardeley also proposes two diffrent colors combinations: gold, gray and white or gold, coral and white.
Designed as jewelry for the interior, these creations reflect French craftsmanship infused with elegance and refinement. Emilie Lemardeley, founder of the brand and creator behind these statement mirrors, is passionate about history, or history (s), which she shares by translating into objects, lights, and furniture. From the Greek myths of Adamas, Dyonisos and Demeter, to Emir Kusturika's strange Golden Carp floating in the air, Lemardeley invites us into a dreamlike universe and its characters like Tyché.

Umasqu Presents the Chili Tribe Collection
Thu, Sep 12th 2019

The first collection of its kind for the decor brand
Decor brand Umasqu presents their newest collection that debuted at MAISON&OBJET last week. This collection is the first of its kind, Umasqu's first tabletop version of their icon looks.The Chili Tribe collection is inspired from Umasqu's continuous observation and interest in ancient culture's faces and masks, recreated with modern take-off. In shifting their masks from a wall hanging medium to a standing object, Umasqu was faced with the challenge of fitting their design language into an object that is smaller in scale and one that adds even more expression and detail.This Chili Tribe collection brings to front a new design process, adding on a 4th layer of MDF which allows for a wider range of design detail and color. All of Umasqu's items are hand painted, unique with their own character and just like us humans, they have some imperfections that make them perfect.
The new collection will still offer the Chili Tribe dolls (standing object) as a wall option, ensuring that customers have options for their decor. Perfect for placement on your office desk, for characterization in the living room or in the kids room, you can not go wrong with this artistic comic art.

La Manufacture Cogolin presents Botanical Rugs by Studio Glithero at Paris Design Week

La Manufacture Cogolin presents Botanical Rugs by Studio Glithero at Paris Design Week
Thu, Aug 29th 2019

Botanical Rugs by Studio Glithero
La Manufacture Cogolin will introduce a new series of rugs, hand- knotted in silk, wool and linen, created in collaboration with Tim Simpson and Sarah van Gameren, cofounders of the north-London design Studio Glithero. The innate curiosity and attention to detail at the foundation of the collaboration of Dutch designer Sarah van Gameren and British designer Tim Simpson yields products that combine precision with inventiveness, and serendipity with design.
The hand-knotted Botanical Rugs collection depict flora that have been foraged and pressed before being composed into intricate designs. The specimens come from the designers' own herbarium,
a library of pressed botanicals that have been collected over several years - wild and undisciplined weeds that grow in cracks and wind around lampposts.
The Botanical Rugs patterns bridge the relationship between the inside and the outside. Likewise the colorways are chosen to transport us to a distinct yet subtle moment of colour in nature; a field of golden corn, a pavement scattered with rose petals, or a bouncy patch of moss. The blue rug bears reference to Glithero's classic blue cyanotype collection that is printed by light with early photographic blueprinting techniques. The Botanical Rugs collection is available in four colorways: Rose, Moss, Corn and Blue and in several standard sizes. Customization is possible upon request.

Tue, May 14th 2019

Designed by UK brand CTO Lighting, the IVY pendant is inspired by the green spaces in the heart of London, specifically the new plants that flourish in the spring that grow in all directions organically towards the light.
The collection was extended with CTO Lighting offering an elegant table option to join the existing pendant, wall and floor lamps. The new additions take the same inspiration from nature as its predecessors, with a form reminiscent of plant shoots bursting forth in an asymmetric, free-flowing shape. The new IVY table lamp echo the pendant's stems rising vertically from the ground or trailing down a wall, with an organic fluidity that instantly softens a space.

Watercolor Pigments take on New Forms in Petite Friture's Latest Tables: FRANCIS

Watercolor Pigments take on New Forms in Petite Friture's Latest Tables: FRANCIS
Thu, May 9th 2019

Petite Friture and designer Constance Guisset created the Francis mirror in 2011, a mirror with an iconic look that came about from an experiment with pigments: the fleeting vision of colour billowing off the tip of a paintbrush as it dipped in water. Last month, Francis tagged along for the ride to Milan to show off its new elements at Salone del Mobile: two three-table series, one with a white base, the other in black, and a new mirror beyond all measure. The two series of tables are a study-in-blue: the black series exploring the warmer tones of pink and violet; wheras the white series focuses on brighter yellow and greens.
Now presented along the horizontal plane, the haze-like pigments of the Francis mirror take on this new-found vigour, softening the harsh reflection and the circle's geometric proportions. Each table-top in the series comes with its own watercolour hue. The narrower the mirror, the more vibrant and animated the colour.

S2H announces collaboration with La Manufacture Cogolin

S2H announces collaboration with La Manufacture Cogolin
Tue, Apr 30th 2019

In 1928, in a tiny French village just a stone's throw from Saint- Tropez, a textile engineer named Jean Lauer purchased the Cogolin rug workshop, and an adventure that would span the next century of carpet-making began.
Immediately, visionnary Jean Lauer set about transforming his new acquisition from a factory specializing in silkworm culture and hand-knotted rugs into an atelier for innovation. He installed 19th century Jacquard hand looms and imported a host of new techniques for knotting and weaving.
These advances enabled the company to produce a wider variety of rugs and led to Cogolin's increasingly widespread recognition throughout the 1930s as a leading creator of bespoke products. Cogolin creations would soon be found gracing some of the world's most prestigious interiors, from Versailles to the Élysée to the most luxurious French ocean liners.
This acclaim also led to collaborations with some of the most celebrated artists and decorators across Europe, such as Jules Leleu, Jean-Michel Frank, Christian Bérard, Sir David Hicks
and Jean Cocteau. The models created in partnership with these legendary figures continue to line La Manufacture Cogolin archives today as a testament to its place in contemporary carpet history.
