Kay-10_2011Pachyderme was born in 1993 of our passion for decoration and our quest to unearth new designers and original ideas throughout the globe.

Our collection, which is constantly expanding, proposes a comprehensive selection of lifestyle products, including lighting, furniture, vases, mirrors, table art and carpets, all designed by artists from all over the world, and, for the most part, produced respecting fair-trade principles.

Principally an exclusive distributor of lighting and decorative objects, Pachyderme currently supplies more than 300 shops in France and abroad.

In 1999 we opened our first shop in the passage du Grand Cerf in Paris, a 19th Century shopping arcade which now houses fashion, jewellery and decoration boutiques, as well as restaurants and cafés.

Our second outlet was launched in May 2005 at Lafayette Maison, the annex of Galeries Lafayette, specialised in interiors. This was a fantastic international showcase for our label and our collections for almost 2 years.

September 2006 witnessed the inauguration of our 3rd shop just 2 steps away from the prestigious place des Victoires in Paris. 2 floors dedicated to interiors which, in addition to our standard wholesale range, mixed vintage pieces from 19th to early 20th century and one-off works from different designers.

Since May 2011 we have been located in the 9th arrondissement of Paris (just 5 minutes walk from Eurostar-Gare du Nord) in a new shop suited to display our collection of huge crystal chandeliers.

In addition to our wholesale and retail activity, we also work regularly with architects and decorators on bespoke and/or monumental pieces. From decorating a bedroom, to customising dishes for a restaurant, and fitting a TV set with our lighting , Pachyderme caters to all sizes of interior projects.

This site will give you a glimpse of our universe and, we hope, encourage you to return regularly to view our new lines.

And should you ever visit Paris, it will be our pleasure to welcome you in person in our shop .
