The Village of Contemporary Design
Pioneer publisher of French design since 1947, Sentou invents an original and colorful art of living, where furniture and objects are not simply beautiful but endearing, modern and poetic. Stemming from travels and encounters, they have meaning and a story, big or small, and bring joy and inspiration to everyday life and the home. Sentou publishes and exclusively distributes the collections of iconic designers such as Roger Tallon or Isamu Noguchi, and offers on its sentou.fr website original creations and emblematic and timeless pieces of design.
Boutures d'objets is a design publishing house whose bias is to manufacture high-end products in France using innovative recycled materials.
