An aquatic invertebrate with a tubular body that sways with the motion of the sea, the humble sea anemone was the muse for this rug by François Dumas for La Chance. Artisans in Portugal hand tuft and handcut the wool to create a raised surface that suggests the movement of these sea creatures.

A native of France, François is now based in Amsterdam, where he is a founding member of the Krux Collective of designers, artists and craftsmen. He is also among the group of designers enlisted by La Chance, the new Paris-based design house emphasizing furniture, lighting and rugs with a "strong personality" made from "noble, durable and natural materials" and all in "European human-size facilities."

La Chance is also entrepreneur Jean-Baptiste Souletie and architect Louise Breguetbeen, who got together in life and work because of, well, la chance! The French duo have lived in India and China; designed offices in London and built homes in Haiti; and have lent their know-how to established luxury companies and start-ups firms. They launched La Chance at the 2012 Milan Salone at Tom Dixon's MOST, a 5-building design world in Milan's National Museum of Science and Technology. We zeroed in on their colorful exhibition inside the railway hall, and it was love at first sight.

The founders of La Chance, the Paris-based design house, have united talent from the bustling “new wave” of global design—10 designers hailing from 9 different countries—in a collection marked by contemporary French élan. And entrepreneur Jean-Baptiste Souletie and architect Louise Breguetbeen are partners in business and in life, as they say. Between the pair, they have lived in India and China, designed offices in London and built homes in Haiti, and lent their know-how to established luxury companies and emerging start-ups.

When the 20-something couple first met, they discovered they were both inspired by a love of the Art Deco movement, when objects were valued for function as well as their decorative attributes. That spirit imbues the modern sense of luxury and uncontrived manner of of their collection of furniture, lighting and rugs. “We like things to be warm, colorful, and good quality,” Louise says. “And in terms of style, you can see all the workings of the furniture, even the upholstered pieces, as we have nothing to hide.”
