Private Chalet in Courchevel by Sybille de Margerie

January 4, 2018

Private Chalet in Courchevel: Sybille de Margerie elaborates her creative concepts by mixing up the most profound uniqueness of spaces conferred to her. To transcribe an atmosphere or an experience intrinsically linked to the environment or the history of a place, she uses key words like culture, emotion and creation.

“I like the balance between tradition and modernity; I attach a great importance to fluidity of spaces, light and comfort. My work is equally highlighted by the attention to detail, the choice of materials and the harmony of colours”- Sybille de Margerie.

Sybille de Margerie privileges boldness in her relationship with colour. For Chevalier Editions’ hand-knotted rug, in silk and wool, she created a refined pattern associated with the colour gradation of subtle tones. Inspired by Japanese straw work, the rug brings an understated vibration to a room, without being its main focus, and participates subtly in the harmony as a whole.

“Her innate sophistication, furthered by a strong personality and bold taste, allowed the interior architect, trained at the esteemed Ecole Boulle to assert her own sense of luxury and service to highly exclusive projects.

I’m not looking to leave my imprint on everything I do; I’m more interested in revealing the soul and uniqueness of a place”. Sybille de Margerie

Transparent like water, coloured like earth and fluid like air, glass becomes a light source. Sybille de Margerie draws inspiration from the tradition of glass craftwork. Waves, bubbles and imperfections are the great virtue of extraordinary creations.

“At the beginning of my career, I wanted to depersonalize the identity of my business in order to be recognized for my competence and not my name. Today, all my endeavours are associated with my name and it’s seems normal to state the signature of my projects”. Sybille de Margerie
