The creator

Lou de Pray is not only the name of a brand, it is also the anagram of the name of its creator, Audrey Pol, who revisits embroidery in a contemporary way by dressing each lampshade with imprinted illustrations. personal or collective stories. Combining mystery and rarity, she has developed through subtle and delicate work a new way of lighting your interior, revealing certain illustrated details once the lamp is lit.

At the same time graphic designer, illustrator and artist, her different skills have made her sensitive to the object, to the material and to the imprint, the one that we leave thanks to the gesture which shapes, which is placed on each creation. She moved from brush to needle, from pencil to thread, from paper to linen, and from canvas to cotton. Her work exhibited on several occasions, it was then naturally that she moved towards artistic crafts. His family has been working with wood for several generations, his sensitivity to this noble material has only grown. It is therefore to this that she turned to manufacture the bases of the lighting fixtures for her very first collection, which she revalorized by selecting, thanks to the carpenter, certain pieces of furniture that had fallen into disuse or forgotten stocks. The nobility, solidity and timelessness of this precious material are part of a conscientious approach that respects our environment, all of its pieces being in limited series and available on demand. She created her brand without ever compromising with her values, in order to offer handmade French lighting, limiting her imports to France and its borders.

In 2020, after training with a Master Craftsman of Lampshade Art, certified Ateliers d'Art de France and Living Heritage Company, Lou de Pray was born.

The result: a collection of tailor-made lighting, authentic and reasoned French manufacturing, in which, going against the tide of the times, she asks us to sit down, to look, so that her creations are not only used to decorate your interior, but also tell you a beautiful story.
