Marc Du Plantier
Seeking to combine authentic antique simplicity with opulent decor, du Plantier strove to create spaces where the soul, poetry and art could flourish.
Marc du Plantier is unquestionably one of the greatest designers of his time. His exceedingly high standards, combined with his commitment to using exclusively luxurious materials, contribute to why he remains so popular today.
Born in France. Du Plantier studied arithmetic and then worked in the offices of an architect. He also studied painting, worked in several couture houses, and designed stage sets and costumes for La Comedie-Française. In 1939, he participated to the Salon des Artistes décorateurs where he was part of the modern and innovative atmosphere, always looking for new inspirations and patterns. During World War II, he moved in Madrid with his wife, where he continued his career, creating interiors for distinguished Spanish clients.
His atypical and previously little-known career revealed a desire for the absolute and an elitism that is rare in this business, keeping him on the side lines of fashion, above the trends and which, in his lifetime, contributed to him being misunderstood. Seeking to combine authentic antique simplicity with opulent decor, du Plantier strove to create spaces where the soul, poetry and art could flourish.
