J'adore le mouton! (I adore the sheep!) Inspired after Claude and Francois-Xavier Lalanne's signature curly sheep sculptures from the 1960s, our handmade sheep stools are the most adorable statement pieces. Part furniture, part sculpture, they are sturdy for sitting on and as charming as can be. (Psst: and you don't have to be Valentino to get the look). Handmade in Switzerland.
Beginning in the 1960s, Les Lalannes captivated a whole generation and soon had a cult following among notable private collectors around the world for their whimsical works of d'art inspired by nature and animals.
Their sheep stools were particularly adored and fashion luminaries such as Coco Chanel, Givenchy, Yves Saint Laurent, Pierre Berg, Karl Lagerfeld, Valentino, Marc Jacobs, and Tom Ford are some of the Lalanne's biggest collecting fans. In December 2012 in New York, a pair of Lalanne sheep stool sculptures sell for $542,500. And in December 2011, a group of ten sheep, Mouton de Pierre designed circa 1979, sold for $7.5 million at Christie's New York.
