CSLB studio was founded by Caroline Sarkozy and Laurent Bourgois. After graduating at Parsons School of Design in New York, Caroline gained extensive experience working for the exacting Andrée Putman. A nomadic childhood between Asia, the Middle East and the USA, informs her encompassing approach to all influences and styles. Laurent graduated at the École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris, and has mainly worked on Architecture and Interior Architecture projects in the private sector since.
A refreshing take on classical style and absolute elegance, which they achieve through exquisite ‘French-style’ craftsmanship, the hallmark of their interiors that are highly appreciated by an international clientele.
For Caroline Sarkozy, textures, feel, colours, the grandeur of onyx, marble and glass, paired with and a sense of coziness inspired by her Anglo-Saxon background. Master of the invisible, detailed and impeccable execution, Laurent Bourgois is drawn to raw materials like wood and plaster as transformed by the craftsman’s hand.
The supreme made-to-measure luxury they create by using onyx in the bathrooms of private homes; and the painstaking techniques they apply to marble.
