Fafa is the friend of a friend: a gentle giant, an artist who has magic in his hands … he can transform the old and ugly into the refreshed and beautiful; he understands whimsy; there is poetry in his creations.
His workshop is in the Perche, just next door to Normandy, and besides selling from home, he also sells in a couple of chic little designer boutiques, scattered across France.
His creations are sturdy and resistant, his chairs can be left outside where they turn a lovely shade of silver grey. The most roughly hewn wooden tables become graceful and modern, his proportions are right, his furniture ideal for everyday life.
Fafa is kindness and gentleness incarnate, and his natural modesty means that he is still amazed to see his creations travel around the world to new homes in far away countries.
I love the new twist he gives to hunting trophies, made from wood, and accessorised with his brocante finds, such as the shoe-form ears, and the kitchen spoon tongues.
All of Fafa’s production is eco-friendly; he re-purposes the most surprising elements. His creations make people smile, and that is a very special gift.
