I use the traditional methods of transforming straw into an astonishing, shiny and luminous material, like a ribbon to create exceptional furniture and objects.

I work for this in close collaboration with craftsmen cabinetmakers. Straw inlay work can be applied to panels, furniture, lamps, picture frames, accessories and many other media, transforming them into elegant, chic and timeless "art objects".

“Straw marquetry in its purest form is simply a work of art: the haute couture of the artisan craft world, the ultimate finishing touch. Delphine’s exclusive designs begin with her own thoughts and influences that are drawn and captured on paper, then reproduced on a support, and covered by straw marquetry.”

The straw can be dyed using an array of natural pigments to transform the natural golden hues into a spectrum of shades, ready for the creative process. Straw’s natural colour includes diffused and delicate shades that lend themselves to the overall sheen and lustre that appear in Delphine’s refined designs.

Straw marquetry is admired by the French haute couture canon including Guerlain, Boucheron and Cartier: it adorns furniture and statement pieces in the most exclusive hotels; and the stunning, luxurious designs can be found in royal palaces, exclusive private houses and stately homes. Other locations include on private yachts, jets and corporate offices of the globe’s most successful businesses, they all love straw marquetry, and so does Delphine.
