A common passion for Art brought Marisa and Philippe to the Ecole du Louvre, in Paris, a passion for all arts, baroque or classical, decorative or traditional. Marisa and Philippe's eclectic taste for different cultures and times, inspired them towards a blend of artistic styles The name SIECLE - which means century in French - was then a natural choice for Philippe, and the brand was born in November 1983.
Today, SIECLE continues to flourish from the most sophisticated item to the simplest one visible not only in its Paris boutique, 24 rue du Bac, but also in your home through the Internet at www.siecle-paris.com
SIECLE received in 2008 the label of Living Heritage Enterprise for its exceptional work in the development of the "decoupage" technique. This label is granted by the French Department of Economy, Industry and Employment to French companies showing artisanal and industrial savoir-faire for excellence.
