Q&A with La Cornue President Xavier Dupuy

Helming a classic, well-established company in the 21st century is tough enough work as it is without also having to deal with an intrinsic indebtedness to DNA. But, in the case of Xavier Dupuy, third generation President of La Cornue, the opportunity to bring his custom ranges to a more contemporary-leaning audience seems to have been somewhat of a no-brainer. In conjunction with French architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte, W. By La Cornue is a fearlessly modern project for the 105-year-old company—and their first new line in 30 years. We talked to Dupuy about bringing his ranges to U.S. markets, their rigorous production standards, and how to establish longevity with contemporary design.

Vintage Furniture-Filled Prefab Living Room in Upstate New York

Built by architect William Massie nearly a decade ago for vintage retailer Greg Wooten, this hybrid prefab home in upstate New York (from our Interiors issue) is a furniture lover's dream. In the living room, a 1950s Franco Albini rattan chair, a Crate chair designed by Gerrit Rietveld in 1934, and a 1970s padded leather sofa by Edward Axel Roffman fill the concrete-floored space. Swing to the left and a Bruno Gambone ceramic piece stands tall. “Every piece had to really matter,” says Wooten. “Most of those pieces have a story, and often that story relates to a friend or an experience. If it wasn’t something created by an artist or designer friend, it’s the one thing I brought home with me on the plane from Italy or the flea market in Tokyo.”
