Gautier: A Design For Life

Gautier: A Design For Life

Nancy and Rachid

Gautier brings elegance, functionality and classic French flair to the home

Founded in 1960 by Patrice and Annick Gautier and now a successful global business, the Gautier brand epitomises the very best in French design and manufacturing. One of only two branches in London, the Chiswick High Road store is a superb showcase for Gautier’s contemporary, eco-friendly furniture and chic accessories.

Rachid Kader owns the branch. ‘I’m actually an architect by profession and I approached Gautier to become a franchisee simply because I love their products,’ he smiles. ‘I often use the furniture in my work and clients always share my enthusiasm for its ingenious, problem-solving practicality and impeccable quality.

‘Gautier isn’t a well-known name in the UK, so I knew that we could offer something very distinctive,’ adds Rachid. ‘The use of colours and materials is so original, the craftsmanship is excellent and the furniture provides imaginative solutions when living space is at a premium.’

Gautier also offers a very popular interior design service. Nancy Ghattas, the charming manager of the store, trained in Fine Art and Interior Design and she is the in-house expert. ‘Clients often ask for help refreshing or refurbishing a particular room,’ she explains. ‘They might want to integrate new furniture or replace the wallpaper or flooring. Then, when I show them the sheer range of our materials, colours, fabrics and finishes, they decide to expand the brief to work on the whole property.

‘The vast majority of our products – whether sofas, beds, sideboards, wardrobes, TV units or dining tables – are modular. That means they can be easily mixed and matched to suit any room size or layout (except kitchens and bathrooms). When I visit a customer – the initial consultation is free – I like to get to know them and their tastes. We explore different options and I prepare a 3D design that meets the budget. That plan is then adapted and refined until the client is happy with the result.’

If you’re doing some Christmas gift shopping for yourself, friends or family, it’s well worth popping over to Chiswick to acquire some true French style.

About Editor

KEEP THINGS LOCAL IS A MEDIA BUSINESS WITH A UNIQUE LOCAL FOCUS

The company publishes four flagship magazines (Chelsea Locals, Chiswick Locals, Richmond Locals and Hammersmith Locals) with more launches planned in London and across the UK. The prime focus of each of these quarterly magazines is to showcase and support the independent traders and small businesses who do so much to give these areas their individual retail character and community spirit. This is achieved through dedicated advertorials which are written, designed and photographed by an experienced team lead by Neil McKelvie.

In every issue, these advertorials are complemented by feature articles which turn the spotlight on different aspects of neighbourhood life and interviews with notable local figures.In addition to appearing in the magazines, every advertorial is also published in the Keep Things Local newsletters, on the website and on social media. Get in touch to be featured in our Summer, Autumn, Winter and Spring issues.
