Cécile Ballureau is a sculptor and furniture designer. Succeeding the stripping of design in industrial series of the Sixties, this autodidact who learned everything from the best design houses where she worked, is one of those who privilege the single piece, the piece of furniture between sculpture and object of everyday comfort. Cécile Ballureau’s creations give the decorations a touch of atypical elegance that could have appeared without them extinct. Their inspiration, nourished by animal themes: bears, insects, fossils… or anthropomorphs reminds us of the fantastic bestiary of Celtic, Egyptian, Scythian furniture or even 18th century French furniture. The refinement of materials such as bronzes, precious slates, turned morocco, silver and gold … resonates harmoniously with history to definitely fit into the great French tradition of artist’s furniture.
