Shop of the Week: Gautier
Furnishing small spaces won't be tough with pieces from this French brand
When designing small spaces, finding the perfect furniture piece is a challenge. A lot of designers and homeowners choose the bespoke route, as furnishing is easier if you have pieces that are specifically made for the space. This is one design problem that Gautier solves outright as it is all about versatile pieces that are durable.
Being in the market since the 1960s, Gautier has become synonymous with excellent quality. Whatever your style is, there's bound to be a Gautier piece or collection that suits you. Going around the Gautier showroom is a visual treat—you will see various setups that resemble those in a real home. You'll find a living area setup with shelves for various knickknacks, an extendable dining table that can accommodate four to eight people, and bedrooms that are tailor-made to the needs of its occupants.
And speaking of bedrooms, Gautier showcases different bedroom setups that sport impressive aesthetics and functionality. You'll find a young music lover's bedroom made quirky by black and punches of red. There's also a sweet but tasteful bedroom for a young girl, complete with a feminine pink-and-gray color scheme, cabinets and shelves that look slightly distressed, and a vanity table. Most of Gautier's pieces are available in three different sizes to fit the needs of your space.
It's hard not to fall in love with Gautier, what with its perfect marriage of style and functionality that is crucial in creating cleverly designed spaces. You'll certainly leave the shop impressed and inspired.
