French furniture designer Paul Mathieu, based in both New York City and Aix-en-Provence, France, combines avant-garde with traditional and contemporary elements to create graceful silhouettes with tailored geometric lines. The designer was a notable recipient at the 2018 AD100 awards, the annual architecture and interior design awards of Architectural Digest India. His Iris Table Lamp, a fluid piece made from glass and bronze, was selected as a finalist for Interior Design magazine’s Best Product of the Year 2017. In that same year, he was named by Architectural Digest India as one of its 50 most influential architects and interior designers. Mathieu was commissioned to design a 12-arm chandelier, altar, lamp and Paschal candlestick for the gorgeous 17th-century church of La Madeleine in Aix-en-Provence. He has collaborated with Ralph Pucci since 1999 and has also partnered with Holly Hunt, Stephanie Odegard and Luxury Living Group. Mathieu’s portfolio includes the Galet Table, cast in bronze and described as “perfectly imperfect,” and the five-arm Venetian-style Luma Chandelier made from brass and Murano glass. He also custom-designed display cases, a marble front desk, hand-knotted rugs, a bronze daybed, and a Murano glass chandelier for the Gyan Museum in Jaipur, India. His collections include sconces, chandeliers, lamps, mirrors, buffets, daybeds, beds, armoires, sofas, chairs and tables crafted from such diverse materials as bronze, Venetian glass, wood, horsehair and leather.
