Created in September 2020 by Marie d’Hoffschmidt and her brother Alfred de Franssu, the meillart.com marketplace brings together artisans, designers and traditional manufacturers with private and professional buyers from around the world. It is both a showcase and a platform for a beautiful art of living.
From furniture and lighting to tableware and decorative accessories, Meillart currently carries 250 brands and designers, offering more than 40,000 items available for sale worldwide. At the crossroads of craftsmanship and design, classicism and modernity, the showcased talents combine a singular know-how with an original creative process.
Meillart encourages an ethical mode of consumption based on aesthetic and functional objects that can be passed on from generation to generation. For the founders of the marketplace, the notion of service is also essential – many objects can be personalised or made to measure.
Through its positioning and aesthetic choices, Meillart brings together designers and buyers around the same definition of luxury: versatile, eclectic, diverse, curious and vibrant.
