How Paris Inspired Consort's Fully-Customizable Furniture Line

BY MAT SANDERS

 

One the most important things I learned from being a digital home decor editor is that, like me, everyone is obsessed with Paris. So when we embarked on the journey of designing Consort’s first furniture collection, we turned to our favorite place in the world for inspiration—the Paris Flea Market.


Strolling the Paris Saint-Ouen, we discovered a leather-bound journal at one of our favorite secret spots for vintage hunting. Inspired by this aughts-era tome, we created a furniture collection marrying its modern-day Parisian romp and our undying obsession with French modernism. Read on for some of the pieces that caught our eye and how we infused their French-modern details with our own California-casual aesthetic.




THE TAPERED LEG

Ever since Jean Prouvé made it a thing, the tapered base has become synonymous with French-cool style, both high and low.

THE WIRE FRAME

Simple. Rudimentary. Goes with everything. We adore French black steel wireframe furniture and came up with our interpretation in the Pip chair series, with a hairpin back detail.

CURVATURE

Whether attributed to a famed designer discovered as an unknown one-off, we’ve always been attracted to the rounded lines in mixed modernist furniture we spot at the Paris Flea.

THE BRANCUSI EFFECT

The fantastical world of Brancusi is felt all over the market in sculptural forms and cast plaster furniture. We channeled the artist with our series of Petit side tables in playful colorways.

SERENDIPITOUS COLOR

Our favorite part of the Paris flea market is the individuality of each vendor and their unexpected uses of color. We wanted our collection to provide an excuse to think outside the box when incorporating color into their homes.
