Who Are We?
We offer a complete universe: at The Woods Gallery everything is linked.
The diversity of the horizons of the objects presented forms a whole, a "way of life": the clothes created in our workshop, the decoration, the reading, the furniture, the artists invited to customize the vintage furniture, the exclusive wallpapers created in collaboration with the artists ...
Everything is articulated and completed in an original and unprecedented way in Paris.
We are committed to delivering the design we love.
The Woods Gallery offers a wide range of vintage and contemporary furniture: armchairs by Pierre Paulin, chairs by Harry Bertoia, Italian lamps from the glorious 50s to 70s, mid-century sofas restored and re-upholstered, tables by big names in Scandinavian design, but above all the specialty of Simon, the founder: Lounge Chairs and DSW chairs by Eames. He unearths these historic fiberglass models whose coast varies depending on the year of production and the color.
Vintage furniture mixes in a fun and refined way quirky and modern decorative objects, mixed with iconic pieces of contemporary art such as an ultra limited collection of Daniel Arsham's “Future Relic” pieces that fans are snapping up.
We also offer a fashion and ethical clothing line: The Woods Paris created by Lauren the founder. Line made in Paris in our workshops from fabrics from textile overproduction.
“A stone's throw from the Abbesses district, which has become a paradise for clothing chains, the discreet rue André del Sarte plays the select card by welcoming up-to-date brands, independent stores and a trendy canteen.
This is where Lauren and Simon Lecoy have set up their concept store. Design, fashion and contemporary art come together in a selection that is as eclectic as it is sophisticated.
When The Woods Gallery opened in 2017, its founders set out to offer everything they love: lots of vintage furniture from big names in design (Paulin, Eames, Magistretti ..), pieces of contemporary art, 'decorative and everyday objects that are often offbeat or bordering on kitsch and classicism, like ToiletPaper, Seletti or the sculptor Ottmar Horl as well as their clothing line: The Woods Paris.
Lauren and Simon have also selected a series of cutting-edge magazines, a few design and art books, and exhibit the work of Parisian artists with whom they collaborate to create exclusive and unique pieces.
The Woods Gallery bridges the gap, with taste, between classic and contemporary, sure values and avant-garde in this small street which rises from the XNUMXth arrondissement. "
