At home in Lyon with the co-founder of Maison HAND
It was love at first site for the Lyon apartment of Pierre Emmanuel Martin and his partner Stéphane Garotin of Maison HAND, the design duo du jour and purveyors of curated chic the world of interiors can’t get enough of…
The mouldings, interior shutters, corridors and parquet wooden floors and the south-facing light of the space had them immediately hooked. The generous proportions of each room and a central kitchen perfectly matched their way of living and entertaining.
Layered onto the neutral, capacious apartment is a curated collection of personal objet that tell stories of the couple’s travels – baskets, ceramics, terracotta…. The edit of furniture also tells of a couple well-versed in design and history, with twentieth-century classics and primitive or contemporary art in masculine hues interspersed with raw material and plants.

The Maison HAND shop in Lyon is a concept store designed as a large loft. With rooms including a bedroom and kitchen, there is an (extremely desirable) home away from home feel. With a beautifully edited display of tasteful brands such as PP Mobler, Gervasoni, Lampes Gras, and Society the duo has also extended into bespoke product of their own.
