Tech Talk: Carole Carr Launches Le MarchéAuthor:Lindsey Shook
For over a decade, designer Carole Carr has applied her eloquent, global approach to design throughout Southern California. Raised in Montreal, her aesthetic was shaped by the many cultural influences she experienced there as well as her appetite for global travel. After studying at UCLA’s Interior Architecture and Design program, she launched her own firm in 2011 with a focus on curating high-end custom interiors with a gracious attention to detail. “I love contrast and juxtaposition—mixed materials, such as metals, stones and wood, or a combination of man-made and natural elements in one piece,” she notes.
Her sought-after style and adept approach to design inspired her to launch Le Marché—a new online marketplace that offers a comprehensive collection of rare pieces—all in one place. “Online shopping can be overwhelming. There are almost too many options out there,” says Carr. “I wanted to create a personalized boutique that offers the same level of quality, expertise and taste that I bring to my own projects.”
Le Marché features a unique blend of the designer’s most coveted local and international vendors, as well as rare finds collected during her travels and custom pieces created exclusively for the site. From luxe velvet armchairs to contemporary lighting and essential accessories, the site has something for every project. “Everything found on Le Marché reflects my specific point-of-view and was chosen with love,” says Carr.
