Visit Site

The Elysée Armchair designed by French designer Pierre Paulin exemplifies contemporary comfort originally designed for the renovation of the Elysée Palace in Paris. Commissioned in the 70s by French President Pompidou to fit out a series of reception rooms, Paulin brought modernity to the historic location through his emblematic and innovative style, designing the timeless Elysée armchair, a living room favourite here at est.

Pierre Paulin’s designs become immediately known for their iconic shapes and innovation taking inspiration from the natural world such as his sculpture-seats Mushroom, Tongue Chair and the Ribbon Chair.
