Pierre Paulin

Pierre Paulin

Born in Paris and grew up in Laon, Pierre Paulin (b. 1927) acquired a passion for creating from his great uncle, sculptor Freddy Stoll and another uncle, car designer George Paulin. This experience led to studying stone carving and clay modeling at the Ecole Camondo in Paris in the early fifties, where he began designing furniture for Thonet with concern for simplicity and use of sensuous curves. In 1958, he became the designer for Artifort, where he created a series of sculptural chairs with an inner structure of steel tubing, covered in foam and fabric. 1968 to 1972 proved to be significant years for Paulin, from collaborations with Le Mobilier National to many important government commissions, including furniture and interiors for President Pomidou at the Elysee Palace in Paris, and assisting development of the Louvre’s Denon wing. He also designed home appliances.
Artifort Furniture
The foundations of Artifort were laid by Jules Wagemans. In 1890, he set up business as an upholsterer in Maastricht. His son, Henricus Wagemans, expanded the company into a furniture factory, which had a showroom in Amsterdam by the end of the 1930's and was already well known nationally. The economic recession of the nineteen thirties forced H. Wagemans & Van Tuinen, as the furniture company was then known, to create a distinctive profile. The emphasis came to lie on functionality, comfort, and quality combined with aesthetically pleasing design and an innovative use of materials. The new brand name became Artifort, derived from the Latin word 'ars' meaning 'art or knowledge', and 'fortis' meaning "strong or powerful."

best stool ever!!
martha, more than a month ago.
i have purchased at least 7 stools all different prices and was worried this was going to be the same.
not so, you get what you pay for with this stool.
it is high quality, really beautiful. most stools don't have arm rests or good back support. this stool has both.
it swivels around. the only thing i wish it would be adjustable up and down. it only comes in 3 heights
counter, bar and high bar.
i am in love with this stool. it is available in so many colors and fabrics, that its hard to choose.
i ordered the leather in a beautiful blue. they are stunning.
