Our myriad of styles – from elegantly classic to joyfully modern – are united by our passion for design and our relentless pursuit of quality."
Already established in the heart of European cities such as London, Brussels, Turin, Madrid, Porto and Stockholm, Schumacher’s return to France demonstrates its deeply rooted history in the home of its founder, further celebrating its French culture.
