Alexander Girard (1907 – 1993) is another favourite designer of mine. Girard’s work combined the timeless lines of the modern with the playfulness and bold color of Latin American folk art.

The official agent to the Estate of Alexander Girard responsible for re-introducing Girard designs to the contemporary marketplace is máXimo.
