TALENTED PEOPLE – The Boys at Atelier Vime

posted in: Talented People | 4


If you took a look at the post just before this, you will have seen a bit of the the trend in wicker (lighting, furniture and accessories) that is sweeping the decorating world. Anthony Watson and Benoit Rauzy, the boys at Atelier Vime, have turned traditional wicker-working into a contemporary craft in their beautiful 18th century home / atelier in the Provencal town of Vallabregues.

Their wares include vintage items as well as their new Atelier Vime Editions series of beautifully hand crafted mirrors, tables, lighting and accessories. Even if you don’t find what you are looking for on their site, you will be very impressed by the gorgeous pictures of their home / atelier showing how to combine tapestries, mid-century modern and wicker pieces to create a look that is super sophisticated yet so very simple and livable (Luxury ruralism at it’s best).

I’ve picked out a few of my favorites below. Enjoy! – VLR
