Pierre Guariche (1926 – 1995) was a student of Rene Gabriel at the school of the decorative arts in Paris. In 1951 he set up his own successful business, and created models for famous editors like Airborne, Steiner, Huchers-Minvielle, or Luminalite. In 1957 Pierre Guariche went to Belgium to manage the design department of a furniture manufacturer: Meurop. Rewarded for his work on numerous occasions, as the prestigious Rene Gabriel prize in 1965, he is considered today as one of the most talented of the young generation of designers emerging at the beginning of the 1950s.*

  1. Very stylish furniture. The wood seems to be very expensive. The designs seems to be unmatchable. The color of sofa matches with my curtains and wallpaper. I’m going to buy this.
