"Antoine Proulx is luxury in its most honest and contemporary form. It is furniture meant to be handed down to future generations."
Antoine Proulx was founded in 1992 by Marc Desplaines who launched the U. S. corporation of renowned Japanese fashion designer Yohji Yamamoto in New York City. The Antoine Proulx collection of handcrafted furniture was designed by Marc out of his frustration at not being able to find what he was looking for in the market. As fate would have it, his brother Richard Desplaines was already established as a master furniture maker with nearly 20 years of experience producing one-of-a-kind pieces for designers and architects. The two brothers cemented a design/build relationship that would land their furniture in prestigious magazines such as Interior Design, Progressive Architecture, I. D., and the New York Times.
