Salon International Cultural  Heritage Fair

2016 was our second year exhibiting at the prestigious Salon International Cultural Heritage Fair in Paris. The Fair is a unique opportunity for skilled artisans with a tradition in design and custom manufacture, to display and celebrate their talent. Our stand contained a variety of our beautiful and absolutely unique decorative finishes, together with examples of our custom made furniture incorporating the eye-catching Urushi lacquer application. We would like to thank all of those who visited us and took time to further learn about the possibilities that our work can offer to discerning designers and their clients.

th – 8th 2015

We are proud to have been invited to display our unique Urushi Lacquer finishes at the prestigious Salon international Culturel Heritage Fair in Paris, November 5th – November 8th.
The theme of this year’s show is Heritage and Modernity, and we are exhibiting our works as part of a small select group of artisans, ‘Made in Europe’.
France has a long and respected history of artisans and groups who serviced the Royal household, Palaces and grand Chateau and as such, there is a very rich history of specialists with a heritage of producing exquisite and artistic works.
We are privileged to be able to display our processes and finishes alongside such companies.
Our techniques are based on the century’s old Japanese art of Urushi, but with absolutely unique finishes developed in our studio by Sergej Kirilov, we have brought the art into a contemporary setting.
We hope that you will take the opportunity to visit the show and we look forward to welcoming you to our stand.
A comprehensive range of the beautiful finishes that we apply to wall panels and furniture for private residences and yacht interiors will be on display.
