In its creative approach, Duvivier Canapés favours straight, reﬁned lines, enhanced by high quality, authentic materials.
The sober design, punctuated by singular details, gives each of our creations a timeless spirit and signature.
Inspired by French “chic” and” art de vivre”, a blend of respectful elegance and casual lifestyle, conviviality and cultural interludes, our sofas combine elegance and simplicity, offering comfort and a charming frivolity in the details.
The models of the Maison Duvivier Canapés have been distinguished since the beginning by a blend of aesthetics, comfort and materials, a trio unifying our strong identity without compromising. New collabotions with chosen designers underlign this identity.
Born in Paris, Norman by heart and Milanese by adoption.
Guillaume starts - by chance - in a “haute couture” workshop at Nina Ricci. Graduated at the age of 21 from the School of the Union Chamber of the Paris Couture, he continues his training with the designer and artistic director Christian Astuguevielle.
In 1991, the lights of Milan, a city in full effervescence, which is creating a Style as well in the Fashion as in the Design, attract him. This is the beginning of a new adventure. Guillaume discovers the world of shoes. It's love at first sight ! The challenge of linking comfort, ergonomics and elegance fascinates him. Finally, this object is perhaps the hyphen he seeks for between fashion and design, between clothing and furniture.
With his partner Marco Censi, he founded a fashion office specializing in accessories: shoes and bags. Together, they learn the secrets of working with leathers and different materials. They will quickly work for the biggest Italian and international brands. However, the design is never far away.
In 2001, he launched with friends of all kinds: architects, stylists, graphic designers, the collective "When A meets B", when Fashion meets Design, unless it is the opposite. This collective becomes aware of a cultural and societal clash between design that becomes a fashion product. He wants to bridge these two disciplines and create furniture that are objects of desire as a fashion product is.
Early 2018, Guillaume is directly involved in the creation of new models for Duvivier Canapés. Seeking to renew the range while respecting the know-how, the quality standards and the Made in France, he explores a casual chic typical of the Parisian style and thus takes a new look at the brand. In January 2019, Maison Duvivier Canapés presents the two first collections signed by the designer, Auguste and Emile.
Charlotte embodies the new generation of French designers with her inventive approach to materials.
Following studies in Design and Interior Architecture at the Camondo School in Paris, she joined the Benetton Group within its creative workshop “la Fabrica” located in Treviso in Italy where she worked with a team of international designers under the direction of Sam Baron.
Returning to France, Charlotte joined the Ateliers de Paris in 2014 and decided to set up her own creative studio. With her creative approach like a quest to research and valorise material, she was immediately seduced by the ethical values and the know-how of the Maison Duvivier Canapés.
This collaboration is part of a joined self-consciousness that we continue to be must of maintain and value our know- how. « As a designer and company we have a heavy mission, re-teaching the public to be sensitive to local production and the know-how of our industries who are disappearing in favour of delocalised manufacturing and less expensive end products.»
Several collections are signed by Charlotte Juillard for Maison Duvivier Canapés: Jules (2018), Jean (2018), Joséphine (2019), Adèle (2019).
