Colonel design studio was created in 2012 by Isabelle Gilles & Yann Poncelet around a cocktail vodka and lime ice cream called the Colonel. Isabelle is a graduate of the Fine Arts School of Reims and Yann is self-taught. Colonel studio primarily specializes in furniture, lighting, and objects, using codes in its various collections that are the signature of the brand: light wood, bright colors, patterns, and craft techniques. This mix evokes travel and holidays throughout the year. All Colonel products are made in France, in collaboration with various craftsmen.
