ELLE Decoration: 35 years already, and a secret to tell you!

To celebrate our anniversary in style, an exceptional sale with unique works of art, a limited edition XXL collector’s issue, a contest with the biggest names in design for 35 days from May 19, and that’s not everything…

For the first time, we have brought together, in front of the camera, those who have shaped the audacious spirit of your magazine over all these years and those who bring it to life today, and tomorrow.

More than 300 issues, nearly 60,000 pages, dozens of collaborators, several addresses for nomadic writing, trips to the other side of the world or around the corner, trends galore: tapestries, black marble , floral wallpaper, bean sofas, cement tiles, 60’s revival, cork, travertine, ikat, crystal bottles, Vallauris ceramics…

But ELLE Décoration is above all a story of transmission, conscious and unconscious. Transmission of values, of a spirit, of a view of the world and of a conviction, passed on like a torch, generation after generation: that decoration embellishes the world and says a lot about our way of life. During these 35 years, the magazine has seen its family grow (25 editions worldwide today!), has initiated innovative projects: a “Suite” fitted out within the Cité de l’Architecture by big names
(notably Christian Lacroix and Maison Martin Margiela), the creation of the “Inspirations” Special Edition, the publication of the collector’s issue in giant format, the launch of the “Décoscopie” podcast, etc.
Because, beyond presenting the central figures of the decorative universe and revealing trends, ELLE Décoration claims a unique big gap: mixing innovation and inspiration, expressing the diversity of styles, associating good ideas and sumptuous achievements, sowing touches of art and reflection, offering escapes to elsewhere like so many breaths…

What do we have in sight for the months and years to come? A new layout and projects galore, like this issue resolutely turned towards the future, because ELLE Décoration,
always in step with the times, will continue to diversify, imagine new variations and test other modes of expression. The proof now with our first sale of works of art and a collector number in giant format.

At 35, the past is a strength and the future full of promise. Happy birthday !

ELLE Décoration n°298, on newsstands from May 19th.
