Meet the never-end Salon Host in Paris: Vincent Darré

Meet the never-end Salon Host in Paris: Vincent Darré
05 Feb 2019

All quotes below are from Vincent Darré, whom we see as a talented contemporary inspiration.

“I think the times are such that we should no longer be seeing objects of design in all-white galleries; we should be seeing them in places where people live.”

“It’s as if I were receiving at home. Since I sort of represent the Parisian of people’s imaginations, the idea is to reconstitute the salon of a Parisian eccentric, someone with special tastes.”

“I think it’s the idea of re-creating Parisian salons as they once were. It’s the concept of the decorative arts. I’ve worked with the great artisanal traditions of France. Everything is made in France. I don’t think luxury comes from a logo. It comes from the rarity of things, and from French handiwork.”

"I do furniture, I love it. I do interior design, I love it. I do magazine editing, I love it.”

"We were punks. Really. We were awful with people, we were crashing parties, we just didn’t care about anything in the world.”

“My new collection is called Renaissance because through this work I’ve been reborn within, embarked on a new life. For others, it’s a continuation, but for me it’s the idea of finding something else. I think we tend to get stuck, and I don’t want to be stuck in Dadaism and Surrealism. I want to spark a renaissance because the inspirations are Baroque, and because the movement is different.”
