Great minds think alike: it was just a matter of time before we crossed paths with Laure Hériard Dubreuil, the fabulous woman behind The Webster and shared our common passion for beautiful design. Now, the time has come to unveil the first product of our collaboration: Pierre Yovanovitch’s iconic Assis(asy)métrie Armchair in a delightfully light shade of pink, exclusively made for The Webster.
The design cognoscenti are familiar with the Assis(asy)métrie Armchair specially designed for the AD Intérieurs 2013 exhibition in Paris and sold exclusively via The Invisible Collection. Sculptural and geometric, its unusual aspect is made of different shapes and forms, evoking carved stone, its proportions and padding making it greatly comfortable to sit on.
Extremely complicated to make, the Assis(asy)métrie Armchair is entirely handmade by French artisans in the Lyon based Atéliers Jouffre. The upholstering is the trickiest and most delicate part: the upholsterer must place and adjust the fabric time and again until it perfectly sits on each unique curve of the armchair: all very haute couture!
The Invisible Collection team together with Pierre Yovanovitch, worked to create the perfect new fabric exclusive for The Webster, making the iconic Assis(asy)métrie Armchair even more iconic. The particular shade of pink is the result of the delicate interweaving of different precious yarns from the Toiles de Tours collection by Maison le Manach, the French textile company created in 1829 and now owned by Pierre Frey.
This new outstanding piece fits perfectly with the impeccably curated selection of fashion and home furnishing sold at The Webster. The luxury multi-brand boutique founded by Laure Hériard Dubreuil, has become the go-to place for a unique shopping experience. Even more so, in their new SoHo six-floor building, home to cutting-edge fashion, state of the art furniture, and a beautifully decorated VIP Room in the penthouse.
We could not think of a more perfect way to kick-start this exciting venture than mixing an iconic piece from our collection with The Webster’s signature color– which, from now on will be referred to as The Webster Pink…. How (more) iconic can it get?
