He believes that comfort does not lie in trivial affluence but in delicacy and rareness.

His mastery and perfectionism convinced a number of customers, some of them quite prominent, to entrust him with the interior design of their homes, which enabled his design studio to become well known internationally. Some of his most beautiful projects are featured in two books; the “Maison Liaigre” (Thames & Hudson) and «Liaigre » in 2007 (Flammarion).
