The Binome Jardin Design Studio Seems Inspired by Fairy Tales

With one foot planted firmly in the city and another foot just as rooted in the country, the Binome Jardin design studio creates unique pieces of furniture that embrace both the refined and raw qualities of life. Whimsical and quirky, each piece is more intriguing than the next.

Founded by Ingrid Michel and Frederic Pain, Binome Jardin is a mesh of creative and imaginative energies. As though inspired by fairy tales, the furniture has a fantastical feel. The green Champignon stool happens to look like a giant upside-down mushroom, the Red Drink chair has knobby branch legs that support a smooth, crimson seat and the Cratere stools makes it look as though tree trunks are sinking into a white mass of liquid.
