A goldsmith in the art of the bath, the Volevatch manufacture has opened a new showroom in the heart of Saint-Germain, where you can come and compose the most beautiful of bathrooms.
After 27 years on rue du Cherche-Midi, Volevatch opened a magnificent showroom in the very chic rue Bonaparte last autumn. This precious showcase sublimates the exceptional bathroom collections of this French manufacturer, created by Serge Volevatch in 1975. With his son Igor and daughter-in-law Nathalie, Serge defines himself as a goldsmith in the art of bathing. His ambition? To magnify water through pieces of tapware crafted like jewels.
A story of sculpture and perfect curves with luxurious finishes, which began in the flea markets of the 1970s. Serge Volevatch discovered extraordinary antique “French-style” bathtubs, adorned with handmade taps, sometimes extravagant, always sublime. As a lover of French decorative arts, he began restoring this heritage. He then met the star dancer Rudolf Nureyev, who commissioned him to design a bathroom entirely equipped with French 19th century sanitary elements. Since then, Volevatch has been designing and manufacturing, in its factory in the Baie de Somme, collections of tapware and precious accessories, with a timeless elegance and refined luxury, appreciated by aesthetic clients in search of rarity and perfection. The right combination of the useful and the beautiful!
Designers, founders, sculptors, welders, chisellers and polishers work with brass, gold, chrome and silver to create haute couture for the bathroom. These exceptional artworks perpetuate a unique French know-how and lifestyle. A living heritage company since 2006, Volevatch is also listed in the inventory of rare crafts as part of UNESCO’s protection of cultural and intangible heritage.
Come and admire the exuberant Versailles collection, the ornamental Les Oiseaux du Paradis which decorated Jeanne Lanvin’s bathroom, the hypnotic geometry of the Art Deco collection or the contemporary luxury of the Piet collection. Finally, Germanopratins will fall in love with the emblematic Bistrot line, a tribute to the literary cafés where intellectuals, writers and artists used to meet. A collection that has travelled the world!
