After graduating with a degree in architecture (licensed by the state) and industrial, graphics and furniture design, India Mahdavi started out working with decorator Christian Liaigre, where she worked as creative director for seven years.
In 2000, she opened her design studio in the Parisian street, rue Las Cases. Initially working as an interior architect in London, New York and Mexico, she decided to open a showroom in 2003 where she would present her first furniture collection, both elegant and cosmopolitan, a sculptural answer to the interior design world.
The studio expanded with projects related to restaurants, (Café Français in Paris, The Gallery at The Sketch in London, etc.), hotels (Thoumieux) and private residences.
India Mahdavi has today multiplied her architectural interventions with projects including the Red Valentino in Rome, Ladurée in Los Angeles, and developed her own furniture line with an organic, generous luxury, whose iconic pieces include the Jelly Pea sofa, Smoking/No smoking ashtray and the Alber table.
