The first sketches drawn for what was to become the Pacha Collection were simple pencil outlines that resembled illustrative clouds. The structured softness of the Pacha Collection rewards the sitter with relaxation akin to sitting on the clouds that inspired it.

Pacha was ahead of its time when it was launched in the 1970s and today it is again setting trends. It has attracted a lot of attention from design aficionados, as its low, plump style gains popularity fifty years on. Achieving such a rounded organic form with cut foam and then upholstering it smoothly requires a special sewing technique and results in a highly crafted piece of furniture.

Legendary French furniture designer Pierre Paulin best rode the 1960’s and 70’s with his recognizable and innovative style that instantly revolutionized everyday furniture. Born to a French father and a Swiss-German mother, Pierre Paulin (1927-2009) grew up in France.

After his studies, an apprenticeship and some travelling to Scandinavia and the United States,  Paulin went on to design his own furniture, embarking upon successful collaborations with Thonet and Artifort, designing furniture pieces which have become sought-after classics. He cited Ray and Charles Eames and George Nelson among his influences and, like Nelson, considered himself a functionalist who added “two little drops of poetry” to his work.

A joyful modernist, Paulin’s low-slung pieces provided a new laidback perspective on life and his forward-looking, eclectic and sculptural approach to furniture design instantly caught the mood of the swinging 60’s. The hedonistic, sinuous style of Paulin’s design also attracted the patronage of presidents Georges Pompidou and François Mitterrand, who asked him to redecorate parts of the Elysée Palace in the 1970’s and 80’s.

Before he died, Paulin created a family enterprise called ‘Paulin, Paulin, Paulin’ to fulfil his desire to see his unrealized designs put into production. After his death, has evolved into something with a bigger purpose – to win the man and his work the recognition he deserved within his lifetime but was too modest to pursue.
