Renowned for her whimsical eye and daring, visionary style, Madeleine Castaing is the star of a fabulous new store on rue du Mail. Three leading design houses – Codimat,Edmond Petit and Mériguet-Carrère – have released new collections inspired by her poetic exuberance, each with its own personality. Her signature leopard prints and exotic foliage dash through a jungle of carpets, wallpapers, and paintings. Thirty years after her death, the world’s greatest interior designers continue to take their cue from the legendary and still-innovative Castaing style. “I make houses like others write poetry”, Castaing once confided to her friend Jean Cocteau, which explains why her singular brand of rebellion still feels like timeless talent.
