Designers we love around the globe: France

While we love nothing more than to support art that's made right here in the U.K. - British designers we stock include Richard Brendon, Thornback & Peel and Rory Dobner -  we're also romanced by several other craftsmen around the world.

We begin in France, where our hearts are captured by three very different designers. The first, is La Cerise Sur Le Gâteau. Their humourous prints ooze grown-up girlish charm and opt for a signature colour palette of chic pastels.

We're also swooning over Mathieu Challiéres whose sculptural lighting takes shape in surrealist forms, including our favourite; wire birdcages, complete with vividly-hued feathered friends.

Lastly, it's Zoé De Las Cases's vintage-like portrait prints and pop art-inspired stationery that we're coveting - she also crafts charming toy sets - choose from a mini garage, kitchen, sweet or grocer's shop, fold and tuck them together and pop up on the wall - adorable.

Whom are your favourite French designers?
