This sofa takes its name from Rue de Lota, where the house of Madame Mathieu-Lévy was located. Under the name Susanne Talbot, she was possibly the best-known fashion designer of her era in Paris. Her apartment was considered one of the most amazing examples of French interior design of the 1920s. Eileen Gray worked on it for five years designing furnishings that went on to become part of the history of contemporary design. Like this model, which is luxurious and singular, thanks to the formal lines of the large independent cushions and two lacquered sideboxes, that are independent too. It is said that the Gray loved this sofa so much that she later had another one made to use in her own home. Wooden frame. Shaped polyurethane foam seat. Cushions padded with natural downs. Leather or fabric upholstery. Independent sideboxes in lacquered wood mounted on castors.

Art must be the continuation of life.

Irish and aristocratic by birth, Eileen Gray was trained at the Slade School of Fine Arts of London and in 1902 she moved to Paris. With her extraordinary, creative and unusual personality, she represented the “new woman” of the 1900s: she wore her hair “like a man,” she smoked in public, drove a car, and flew in an airplane. She had romances with men and women and went to restaurants and nightclubs with them, even wearing men’s clothing. She honed her own sensitivity as an artist among some of the major cultural figures of the age: Colette, Gide, Proust, Rilke, Joyce and Gertrude Stein.

The independence and the originality of her mind made her career entirely unique. In 1922, she opened a gallery with furniture, lamps, mirrors and carpets that she produced in small quantities. After her success as an interior designer, and after turning 40, she studied architecture. From Art Deco, she migrated towards the Modern Movement, leaving an indelible imprint on the history of 20th century design. Her house “E 1027” in Cote d’Azur (1927-29) was famous: an emblem of architecture from the 1900s, a monument to Gray’s modernist vision.
