Salvage stock used to fit out Legendary Parisian eyewear brand Maison Bonnet

Maison Bonnet, a family run French lunetier beloved for its exquisite hand-crafted custom fames, think Yves Saint-Laurent, Le Corbusier, Jackie O, has just opened in Mayfair.

The boutique and atelier on Stafford Street brings to life the world of Masion Bonnet over six floors using salvage stock from the Retouvius showroom — sensitively envisioned by French artist, designer and friend of Retrouvius,Pierre Bonnefille.

Our ex-museum mahogany cabinets have been carefully adapted to house and display sets of lunettes.

Salvaged hardwood parquet blocks, low level cast iron shelving from the UK Patent Office and a mix of Georgian and Mid-Century seating all combine to express and narrate the brands bespoke and artistic aesthetic.
