CURATED. CONTEMPORARY. BESPOKE.

The Invisible Collection is the first online platform to sell a curated selection of pieces by the world’s best interior designers.

All handmade by the most talented craftsmen.

Curated. The Invisible Collection is first and foremost an assertive eye for style, an unmistakable taste for design, an informed talent for curation. We promote the lifestyle we love by gathering and showcasing the best talents of interior design and craftmanship. On our online platform, as well as in our exclusive showroom, design connoisseurs  can find the perfect piece(s) to decorate and transform their interiors in a very personal way. From Pierre Yovanovitch’s iconic armchairs, Jérôme Faillant-Dumas’ exquisite Cabinet of Curiosités, Damien Langlois-Meurinne’s sculptural Coming Over Table to the whimsical Conversation Collection by Vincent Darré,  The Invisible Collection is the go to place where design meets art.

Contemporary. Like any other art form, design is a mirror of its time. The pieces of furniture we select, reflect the best work conceived by great artists and designers around the world today, all handpicked for their relevance and uniqueness. We strongly believe in the talent of each designer we represent and work with them closely in order to follow their creative process, witnessing how new beautiful works are created.  Most of all we value their originality and their contemporary take on every single piece of furniture they design. By supporting and promoting these XXI century talents, we take on the challenge of building a bridge between the masters of the Decorative Arts’ golden era - Jean-Michel Frank, Pierre Chareau, Jean Royère, - and those we believe to be their contemporary heirs.

Bespoke. Love a piece but need different dimensions, a different fabric or a different finish? We value the ultimate luxury of bespoke: our pieces are made to order, and in most cases bespoke, thus accommodating to clients’ needs. We work with designers and craftsmen to customize colors, fabrics, lacquers, materials and dimensions, to make every piece truly unique and impeccably manufactured. We personally guarantee the authenticity and quality of each piece, delivered with a certificate that attests all the information needed, should you wish to consign it to auction in the future.

How did it start? It all began with a dream. Isabelle Dubern, a long-time admirer of Pierre Yovanovitch’s work, dreamt of owning a Papa Bear Armchair. Unfortunately, the only way to acquire her dream armchair was to hire Pierre Yovanovitch for a whole interior design project… While attending the Chelsea Flower Show in London, Isabelle shared her “impossible” dream with her friend Anna Zaoui, who just so happened to have chosen Pierre Yovanovitch for one of her projects in New-York. She offered to place an order for that particular piece on Isabelle’s behalf. The two friends, both passionate about interior design, realized that many beautiful site specific pieces are created by interior designers and architects for private projects around the world, without ever being offered to the public. These wonderful design pieces remain hidden and inaccessible. The Invisible Collection, a reference to the short story by Stefan Zweig, was born with the aim of offering these confidential pieces to design amateurs and collectors around the world. Lily Froehlicher soon joined the project and, within months, The Invisible Collection grew from a dream to an established name in the world of high end design. Sold online and throughout pop-up exhibitions in Paris, Miami, Milan, London and New York, the pieces are now available to view in our private showroom in the heart of Belgravia, London.
