The world of fashion and décor is going crazy for the toile de Jouy. To pay tribute to the founder of their factory, who died two centuries ago, Lenôtre has asked the designer Hervé Matejewski to color them in his own way. Revisited in fluorescent colors, they now dress up the crunchy chocolate of three flashy pastries to be eaten exclusively during PARIS DESIGN WEEK.
In 1947, Gaston Lenôtre opens his first shop in Normandy. In 1957, with his wife Colette, he purchases a shop in Paris at 44, rue d’Auteuil. An immediate success! International experience begins in Berlin, then in Japan, Middle East, Korea, Las Vegas, Bangkok and Beijing.
Lenôtre is the official caterer for the Football World Cup.A huge event handled to perfection thanks to Lenôtre’s expertise.
