Sacristain Side Table
Design: Christian Liaigre
A tribute to this interior design masterpiece.
Simplification. Rationalization of forms.
Purification of superfluous decorations.
Sacristain Side Table is our personal visualization of this classic by Liaigre, architect and interior designer from La Rochelle.
Truly, we recognize him as a profound influence in our work.
Intended as a functional piece of furniture, this table is nevertheless disguised as an object of jewelry display.
The elegance of its forms and the fineness of its materials convey a light solidity, a gentle firmness, a royalty without ostentation.
What may seem like a simple visualization was actually a mathematical equation.
We had to solve the precise angle from which to focus on the objects.
Plus respecting the play of light.
And also maintaining the proportion of the two tables.
Therefore, we spent considerable time imagining the perfect view of these two Sacristain Side Tables.
Once we solved it, we wondered about the use to which these tables have been put since their creation.
Perhaps as a side table to deposit a bottle of wine or champagne.
Or to rest a book after a solitary moment of reading.
This object of interior decoration has become iconic for two reasons.
On the one hand, its functionality.
It is a piece of furniture that most people find necessary.
On the other hand, its presence and elegance.
Sacristain Side Table doesn’t go unnoticed. It takes on a certain prominence.
But the exact prominence.
The magic of this object means that it knows how to be in its rightful place.
