Private curated Design tour of PAD Fair Paris, March 2015

“Artecase skillfully navigated me through the Fair and considerably enriched my experience of it by showing me pieces I wouldn’t necessarily have seen, explaining the significance of works and providing information and insight about designers. Their knowledge of the market is impressive. I was interested in exploring and looking for pieces for my home and they offered valuable and constructive guidance and advice, making the whole experience a pleasure. It was enlightening, informative and fun and I would highly recommend booking one for people in the market for collectible design”.
Yvonne Lalonde, Paris.

‘The Paris art and design market is wonderfully rich and diverse. When working with Artecase I quickly learned that their relationships with dealers and galleries helped immensely when searching for an item.  Together with their market savvy and facility for the French language they took an otherwise perhaps daunting task and made it a truly enjoyable experience.‘

Talk with Gabriele Pezzini, Thinker

Thank you a million times for organising the wonderful event last week with Gabriele Pezzini. It was an exceptional  evening, a rare privilege to spend time with such a master of design in intimate and supremely elegant surroundings.  I was enthralled both by his talent and his extraordinary generosity in sharing his vision and insight. The welcome was so warm, every detail so perfect. You made us all feel part of something very special… the happy few.  I left feeling I had gained valuable and fascinating knowledge of the world of creation. Please keep me on your waiting list for Artecase’s  next program of events, I can’t wait!

-Kate Chartier, Paris

Screen-Shot-2013-08-29-at-2.01.40-AMVisit to Atelier of Elsa Schiaparelli

Artecase organised a truly exceptional and thrilling experience for us with their exclusive visit to the Schiaparelli appartments and atelier in Place Vendome. Susan and Elizabeth are knowledgeable and enthusiastic and brilliantly underlined the connection between the archived 1930s collectible design we saw and the couture being created by Schiaparelli at the time.  We look forward to working with Artecase on further expanding our own design collection.

 Looking over Place Vendome while discussing 20th century and contemporary design, we were served champagne and macaroons on a superb lacquer table by Vincent Darré. It was a very special experience we will never forget. Thank you Artecase!

-Alexandra Laurent de Rummel, Paris/Athens

We have just returned from a trip to Paris, and would just like to say “thanks” to …  Susan & Elisabeth who ran the Art Tour and visit to Les Puces [and who] were two of the most knowledgeable and lovely people we have had dealings with. Thanks once again – these people are a credit to your company!

Karen and Duncan, London
