Nou Design : A meeting between the creators and enthusiasts
A small shop with high added personality
We are, much like a “gallery owner”, a meeting point between contemporary creators of long-standing renown and amateurs of all things beautiful, far removed from industrial-scale design.
A gallery of exclusive items
We are an online gallery who have made a conscious decision to offer a select range of items, all made in France as part of a small run, a limited or numbered series, or even an exclusive collection or a unique piece.
A team at your service
We are a small team, headed by the website’s founder, Hélène de Saint Pierre, that will personally reply to any questions you may have, and guide your choice of item if so desired. Introducing the manager Helene de Saint-Pierre : Hélène de Saint Pierre, a former student of the Paris School of Fine Art, is a qualified architect specialised in interior decorating. After years under the tutelage of Jean Gismondi, the Parisian antique dealer, Hélène de Saint Pierre set up her own decorating agency in 1996. Hélène de Saint Pierre was selected by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs to renovate the interiors of its Art Deco real estate portfolio, including the French embassy in Belgrade (Serbia), the residence of France’s representative to NATO in Brussels, and the French embassy in Ottawa (Canada). Hélène de Saint Pierre’s deep respect for the applied arts, her perfect knowledge of styles, her eclecticism and her way with objects draw a passionate, fascinating clientele always on the lookout for high quality and modern refinement. With them Hélène shares her meetings with creators, and now she wants to share them with you…
