Haute Déco is simply unique in the world of decorative handles for having a colour library of over 100 colours ranging from soft neutrals to vivid hues.
Technically speaking, our colours are organised by collection, each defined by its own techniques, texture and finishes. Each collection will have its own vibe, from the boldness of Pop-Art to the quiet sophistication of our lacquers or the calmness of mineral shades.
Gems Colour Palette: sophisticated see-through colours inspired by precious gemstones
In all cases, colours are body-tinted using combinations of pigments perfected over time; inserts are cast in for maximum strength and we use the best polyester resin for durability. All our handles are hand-polished, making them uniquely tactile.
Our colours are best discovered in person at our showroom where the full range of colours is on display.
Subtle colours made from complex pigment combinations, highly polished to reveal their true depth
Haute Déco's lacquer handles are at the sophisticated result from complex pigment combinations designed to achieve subtle contemporary colours.
Ranging from subdued tones such as steel or graphite to bold Chartreuse or deep Plum, the Lacquers palette is a glamorous take on colour.
Made from a hard-wearing polyester resin that does not chip, Lacquer handles are body-tinted, giving the colours depth and intensity. Each handle is hand-polished to a high gloss in the multiple stages required for a proper lacquer finish to reveal the true depth of the colour.
Every design can be made to order in all Lacquer and Pop Art colours.
Inspired by the palette of zesty colours used by Pop Art artists, Pop Art handles make a playful primary colour statement.
Artist drawings by Christian Migeon for the Original Poignée collection
The Poignée collection was designed for Haute Déco by Christian Migeon, a pioneer of the use of resin in fashion and design.
Three-dimensional, each organic design is shaped by hand during the polishing process, when the hallmark texture specific to Migeon's design is worked onto the piece. In addition to conferring a stylish rough-hewn dimension to the handle, this uniquely tactile texture helps provide a good grip.
In a process perfected over the last fifteen years, pigments are combined to secret recipes and inserts are cast in the resin for maximum strength. Production takes place at Haute Déco's own workshops in the English countryside, by artisans trained by Christian to his exclusive savoir-faire.
An extensive colour palette of 40 colours ranges from delicious tangy see-through colours to stone finishes and mineral shades.
