Marie Soudré-Richard is a talented woman of taste. She was ahead of her time in the fashion world when she launched Little Fashion Gallery. She has now a new retail digital project: Collectif. A network of design experts, style and Internet at the service of organisations willing to grow and to change. Marie is a hedonist and has a knack for choosing the perfect pieces and a unique eye to sublimate a space or a place – she loves decorating and beautiful materials. She gave The Socialite Family an exclusive peek at her Parisian apartment which is a perfect illustration of her audacious taste, just the way we like it. Let’s visit.

Which room do you spend the most time in at home?

Marie Soudré Richard

The kitchen-dining room-playroom is really the room where we’re all together. We sit around the big table or on the floor on the Kilim. I got this carpet for my 18th birthday, it was my dream and I knew I’d always have it with me! And it’s always found its place in every apartment I’ve lived in since! I’ve been told this room has a Scandinavian feel, I take it as a great compliment!

What is your home missing?

Marie Soudré Richard

An original photograph by Arnaud Pivka and, if Acne made furniture, what one of their armchairs would be.

 

A cheap piece that you’re proud of?

Marie Soudré Richard

My shells from Vallauris, of course. They cost between 10 and 40 euros each and are an underappreciated art! And what an effect!

Where do you go to look for furniture?

Marie Soudré Richard
In my father’s barn in the country! Also, Leboncoin and Ebay. For the beautiful pieces I ask my friend Philippe Provot who owns an antique shop called La Brocante de Balînes in Verneuil-sur-Avre. Philippe is an unusual and timeless character who knows everything. He’s been building his own house using ancient materials – it’s a giant curio parlour where 18th century furniture meets unique pieces like Philippe Hurel’s writing desk, old china and 17th century pont-aux-choux. I’d love to live surrounded with such eclecticism bordering on chaos, but it’s not really in my character and I’d be miserable in such hotchpotch! We bought our dining room table at the Marché Paul Bert from Maxime Jacquier.

Your favorite designer ?

Marie

Noguchi. I love paper!

What’s your current crush ?

Marie

Arnold Goron‘s sculptures.

Which piece of artwork, furniture or books do you dream of having one day?

Marie Soudré Richard

A chair by Jean Prouvé, a pendulum lamp by Pierre Guariche, a chair by Piet Hein Eek and several Gallé vases. I have a penchant for Art Nouveau, it’s in my family history. My great-grandfather founded the Magasins Réunis in Nancy and his brother founded the museum of the school of Art Nouveau of Nancy – so even if the decorating in our apartment doesn’t reflect it, I have a penchant for Majorelle, Gallé and Victor Prouvé.

Do you find it easy to mix family life with beautiful decorating?

Marie Soudré Richard

The apartment was designed so that the kids feel comfortable and can run around. Of course, we keep the delicate stuff out of their reach. For the rest, we have to accept the sticky fingers and clumsiness. A home should be full of life and reflect the family’s state of mind.

Where are you going on your next holiday?

Marie Soudré Richard

Skiing! We’re going to stay with some friends in Annecy. I love that town, it’s sportive and between a lake and the mountains. You can’t help but feel great there. We’ll be skiing in La Clusaz during the day.

What’s your motto?

Marie

You shouldn’t stay stuck on principles, but you should have strong values! Principles should be constantly reassessed, but values are there to be passed-on. The other one I have is more elementary but so true: Be Happy!

Can you recommend a restaurant in Paris or anywhere else?

Marie

Le Braisenville. It’s not new but it’s very pleasant.
