Hi, I'm Louie.
Louie George Michael makes furniture as fun as a Wham song!
As for me, I am what one could call a George-of-all-trades. My baguette under my armpits will always betray my french blood but I will confuse you with my mid west American accent. I grew up discovering the world from the back seat of my parents car, drawing since I can remember holding a pencil. I started as an Architect, where I understood how to develop a relevant concept and sleepless work. With the ambition of gaining more control over my creations, I dedicated myself to craftsmanship.
Woodworking became my playground and furniture, my field of experimentation. To express my love to my new homeland Quebec, Canada, I devoted my collection to promote its local treasure: Maple wood. Elegant, tough and flexible, my contradictory designs challenge the limits of gravity.
I treat my furniture as an architecture to create a dialogue between its environment and its user. Playful, each piece comes to life through humour and a sophisticated game of shape and balance.
