French-American duo Laurent Champeau and Kelli Wilde are known for creating interiors that redefine the spirit of French classicism and express an uninhibited vision of luxury. With a background in art history, Seattle-born Wilde worked in contemporary art before parlaying her skills into a career in interior design. Paris-born architect and designer Champeau built his resume working on luxury hotels and retail environments for the likes of Giorgio Armani. The pair met when they were both employed by renowned firm Mlinaric, Henry & Zervudachi. They opened their eponymous studio in Paris in 2011, with the intent of creating modern spaces inspired by France's rich design history.
