The marque, Le Grand Siècle, brings to life panoramic wallpapers and wallpaper patterns of the 18th and 19th centuries garnered from collections in the Musée Des Arts Décoratifs de Paris and the Bibliothèque Nationale de France. The intensive and detailed research work entailed in the selection and restoration of these styles of high decoration demonstrates the commitment of the marque to breathing new life into French decorative arts.
Discover Grand Siècle styled interiors and the qualities that inspired them, and then, like George Sand, “bow to inspiration without reflection, and love all that is beautiful without distinction”.
In reviving 18th and 19th century models, Le Grand Siècle aims to revitalise, enhance and promote the particularly French genius in Les Arts Décoratifs, evidenced by 100% French sourcing, featuring hand manufacturing wherever possible, perpetuating French flair from the past in the present.
Vanessa Hahusseau, the founder of Le Grand Siècle comes from a background of literacy, curiosity and an affinity for natural beauty. She maintained her intense interest in history, literature and art while graduating in L’Institut d’Etudes Politiques, and developing her strong affinity for decorative art.
