6 Louis Vuitton’s leather furn designers you should check.
For the first time, the Maison brings together the highlights of its Art of Living’s designers in a place no less than one of France's largest castles.
Louis Vuitton takes us on a tour through the historic Château de Fontainebleau to spot LV’s ageless leather designs among Renaissance pieces.
The castle has been there for more than eight centuries and this choice is far from unintentional.
Though the upbeat soundtrack chosen for the campaign brings the perfect contrast for the classic scenario, the French house’s attempt to convey its timelessness goes beyond it.
The furniture spotted inside the palace, such as pieces from the Les Objets Nomades collection, presents to us how far the Maison can actually go in terms of design. Contemporary silhouettes perfectly finished in every detail remind us that there’s still a place for French savoir-faire inside homes.
And when spotted in such a special and historical place, the creations are actually seen as true masterpieces, ‘cause that’s what leather design is about: a surface for creativity like no other that can keep up with Maisons’ legacies for its ever-lasting qualities and possibilities.
Keep scrolling to check some of Art of Living’s creations and their designers.

This is a structure that endorses the House's historical spirit of movement, featuring a frame wrapped in Louis Vuitton leather whose motion calls to mind rolling ocean waves.
