Inspiration for the Hélène Aumont Collection draws upon a life rich in serendipity. Selecting the graceful curves of la ligne féminine and the strong structural components of la ligne masculine, the collection embodies the psyche and soma of Hélène Aumont. Born in Paris in 1962, Hélène spent much of her time with her artist grandfather, Pierre Henry de Bressac, a painter who specialized in watercolor and drilled her in the “3 C's”: color, composition, and candor. It was not until Hélène arrived in LA that she began to pursue and embrace her passion for design as a full-time profession. The addition of her home-furnishings and lighting lines was a natural progression of her desire for detail and love of whimsy and fantasy, resulting in a line that is as beautiful as it is unusual.
