Why Quintessence ?
You can't the number of times we were asked this question with all nuances: why having started this adventure in our own home? Isn't it difficult to live in a house full of objects ? Not complicated to open all the WE? Why launching an E-shop? In the end it makes many questions, for a single answer : passion for beautiful objects and gardens.
Manu and I have been sharing a common sensibility for interior design and nature for more than 15 years and however surprising it can appear, the passion is the only term which allows us to explain what makes Quintessence so original and justifies all what we have been developping up to here.
Welcoming guests at home and in the garden every weekend was an unknown concept in the region and even less in the village and nevertheless it is working perfectly wel !
At home you will find, a wide range of decoration objects , accessories , small classic and design furniture for the house as well as ' fashion accessories.
The garden of 25 hundred square meters will offer you an attractive green walk. You can discover horticultural arrangements and the collections spread on the route. Gladys and Phoebe, our two adorable English Springer Spaniel will be very happy to walk with you and ask you for throwing the the tennis ball ! Kids are loving it !
We base ourselves on 5 concepts:
You will never find at our home products simply because they are fashionable". We choose our products because they inspire us and because we would love to place all of them in our home or in the garden. We wish to get our own identity and we do not surf on the fashion wave.:-)
