Nico Villeneuve designs exceptional contemporary furniture to commission. Clarity of vision is combined with a sound application of craftsmanship to create unique pieces for high end residential projects.
Nico trained as a furniture designer and maker with John Makepeace at Parnham House in England, and also worked for many years as an interior designer. Concentrating now solely on furniture, he aims to provide a personal service to designers and private clients looking for pieces with integrity and architectural presence.
The simplicity of form relies on careful selection of materials combined with impeccable detailing to result in objects of lasting value. It is not enough that they look good in a photo, they must also feel wonderful to the touch. Undersides and backs are finished smooth to the same high standard as tops and fronts; the edges of veneered surfaces are often inlaid for protection, and made more comfortable for close contact with a soft radius. This level of quality is only achievable in the best custom made furniture, and will reward those who appreciate it with much pleasure in use.
A selection of recent projects can be seen in the portfolio section. Please contact Nico to discuss any ideas for commissioning similar pieces.
