About Galerie Cachot
As the official and exclusive agent for the brands presented here on 1st Dibs, I enjoy bringing high quality, niche brands from Europe to the Americas following 20 years of senior management at several European luxury goods companies including Richemont’s Cartier, Graff and Mauboussin. While I didn’t realize until 10 or so years ago, my interest in design was sparked by 20 or so transatlantic crossings with my family as a child on Compagnie Generale Transatlanique’s oceanliner S.S. France. Still fresh in my mind is the splendor of the domed and starry ceiling in the dining room. The Chambord dining room, decorated by Mrs. Darbois-Gaudin in gold anodized aluminium with monochrome chairs in red, orange and cream. The dining room’s dome, painted black, contained an array of recessed spot-lights, and sat within a circular band of translucent, fluorescent-lit panels, all on a truncated rotunda of gold aluminium for a starry night effect. Around all four walls of the room Jean Mandaroux’s continuous mural, painted on 17 lacquered aluminium sheets, was entitled Les plaisirs de la vie: The Pleasures of Life. Since I was an infant to small child at the time I spent a fair amount of time in the children’s playroom which featured a Jacques Noël created trompe-l’œil panels for all four walls in a Renaissance theme. I also have fond memories running around the ship’s many decks and enjoying the swimming pool and its walls covered with back-lit engraved glass panels by Max Ingrand.
