Michel Haillard’s furniture could be characterised as creations of an exotic, paradoxical Baroque design. Some view his work as infernal, phantasmagorical visions. The French designer's use of exotic leathers, dark wood, bronze, and horns, combined with a tribal sensibility, can be daunting.

His use of unique and striking animal parts is a celebration of animals and a protest against human dominance. These whimsical, challenging pieces show an unbridled imagination, a manifest nostalgia for pomp and irony.
