PIERRE PAULIN

“Something happened to midcentury modernism in the last couple of years: It got boring… And shifting taste is making it possible to reassess the creativity and innovation of designers too long overshadowed…

Pierre Paulin (1927-2009) was the standout designer of Les Trente Glorieuses, as the French call their country’s vigorous 30-year postwar era, and his sinuous, hedonistic furniture, notably his stretched-fabric chairs, was esteemed enough to decorate the apartments of the presidential palace. Now, after years in the shadows, mod is back.” — Jason Farago*

A year before he died, Pierre, his wife Maia, and their son Benjamin founded PAULIN, PAULIN, PAULIN, which preserves and oversees reproduction of the great modernist’s furniture.
