Two young women met in college at the end of the 90’s. Their common traits included their funny haircuts, yellow t-shirts, and non-stop chatter. Upon graduation, they both worked in the fashion world; one spotting and sourcing trending accessories and the other organizing fashion events. These professional activities became their passions.
Soon they became fed up with the sad colors, soulless chairs, standard tables, and boring home decor in the mainstream world.
In 2011, they decided to transition away from fashion catwalks and move into furniture catwalks, creating their own Rétro collection with one promise; to make their furniture into a real fashion accessory.
Taking up the challenge to design chairs and desks with high heels with a focus on sweet colors and cute prints, a collection of 50’s inspired retro design furniture, in step with the latest Fashion Week trends, was created.
The collection boasts bright colors and eye-catching prints through its chairs, tables, desks, and accessories mixing metal, wood, and of course, the most popular surface from the 50’s, Formica. Designed in France and made in Europe by meticulous craftsmen, Les Gambettes introduces lively, comfortable, and solid furniture in over 200 retail stores and in many restaurants and hotels throughout the world.
