Gautier: Vive la France!

Gautier: Vive la France!

Rachid, Nancy and Ratiba

Gautier is bringing elegance, functionality and French flair to the High Road

For the last year Chiswick has been home to a proud outpost of the very best in French design and manufacturing. Owned by Rachid Kader, Gautier has proved a hit with W4 residents, won over by its contemporary, eco-friendly furniture and chic accessories.

The High Road branch of Gautier (there is only one other in London) isRachid’s first venture into the retail world. ‘I’m actually an architect by profession. I approached Gautier to become a franchisee simply because I love their products,’ he says.‘I often use the furniture in my work and I’ve found that clients share my enthusiasm for its problem-solving practicality and high quality.’

Founded in 1960 by Patrice and Annick Gautier, the company is still family-owned and based in the Vendée. With the baby boom in full swing, initially they specialised in making children’s furniture, becoming famous for novelty car and cabin beds. Subsequently, the business expanded, producing furniture and accessories for every room (except the kitchen) and today’s global business was born.

‘The Gautier brand isn’t that well-known in the UK, so I knew we could offer something really distinctive,’ explains Rachid. ‘All our stock is designed, sourced and made in France. The use of colours and materials is so original, the craftsmanship is superb and, in particular, the furniture provides imaginative solutions when living space is at an absolute premium.’

Customers can also consult Gautier’s expert in-house interior design team. ‘My colleagues, Ratiba and Nancy, are very experienced and they’re happy to arrange home visits,’ says Rachid. ‘They’ll take measurements, look at the existing colours, furniture, flooring and lighting and then work with the client to devise a creative, efficient design that meets the budget.’

Until 3 December Gautier will have showroom discounts on selected items. So, if you’re doing some Christmas gift shopping for yourself, friends or family, now is the perfect chance to acquire some classic French style.
