"Those [younger] years of contemplation have generated a creative spirit based on the use of materials such as wood weathered by the sea and the sand, as well as fine leathers worked according to the traditions of saddle making."
French furniture and interior designer Christian Liaigre credits the company that commissioned his first funiture line, Maison Nobolis, for building his reputation in this category. Favorite woods he uses are wenge, wacapou, wamara, and ebony from Africa, as well as more traditional timbers such as white sycamore and oak. With these unusual woods his work has a global feel.
