Rodolfo, Maria Ester Mazar are happy to announce a new era in the history of Unique France. We will continue to deliver on its well-established reputation and credibility in the exclusive world of fine French antiques and arts at their new gallery-style boutique in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley.
Rodolfo, Maria Ester Mazar have applied their expertise in creating breathtaking French decors to the interior design of their own space, resulting in what is Brisbane’s most magnificent antiques showroom. Located within the Philip Bacon and Jan Murphy Galleries precinct, their collection is housed in an interior reminiscent of those fine provincial houses, châteaux and grand city residences from which they source their pieces.
Unique France carries a broad selection of fine French antiques including an impressive selection of elegant provincial furniture, refined 18th and 19th century marquetry pieces, decorative objects, porcelain, bronzes and art. Chandeliers are a noted speciality.
The Unique France team divides their time between Paris and Brisbane, with Denis Geoffray functioning as principle buyer for Unique France and liaison with European sources. Denis began his career studying Law before progressing with the best auctioneers in Lille and Paris. At 24 he became the youngest dealer in Chinoiserie for the European Biennale.
In Brisbane, Rodolfo and Maria take great delight in introducing both existing and new customers to the ever-changing collection, and will happily guide you on a tour through the showroom to retell the history of each piece. Fortunately, French antiques offer the perfect compliment to the decor of the ‘Queenslander’ homes found in this part of the world, while creating equally stunning effects in our eclectic, modern decors.
The boutique’s walls are a showcase of the ancestral techniques of Tadelakt, Marmorino and lime finishing, all executed by Idea Creation, who bring to Australia these authentic French decoration techniques.
These products are also available through Unique France as an addition to their antique collection.
Rodolfo and Maria are eager to source specific pieces for clients as required, and will work from magazines, descriptions and photos to help you create the exact Decor of your dreams providing interior decorating solutions.
We can supply authenticity certificates for all of our antiques.
