India Mahdavi


After studying architecture and industrial, graphic and furniture design, India Mahdavi spent seven years as Creative Director for interior designer Christian Liaigre.

She founded her own studio in 2000 and, from her base on Rue Las Cases in Paris, has since worked internationally on interior design, scenography, furniture and object design projects.

These have included restaurants and hotels, such as The Gallery at Sketch in London, Ladurée in Geneva and Los Angeles, and the Monte-Carlo Beach Hotel; retail concepts, most recently Red Valentino in Rome and London; and a line of furniture and home accessories, including her trademark Charlotte armchairs. She describes her style as "polyglot and polychrome".
