Antiques & Vintage: Objet de Curiosité in Paris

January 20, 2012 7:30 PM

BY Julie Carlson

Pierre-Emmanuel Grange-Jaricot grew up collecting natural curiosities in the town of Ardéche and later sold painted Henri II sideboards during his punk days in Paris.

Grange-Jaricot is now the founder of the Objets de Curiosité, an interior design collective of nine individuals from varying backgrounds. By sourcing unusual, reprised, and antique finds, Objets de Curisoité designers reference the 17th-century European trend of curiosity cabinets and oddities.
