"For me, Malmaison has always been less a store and more of an education. Since we launched ELLE DECOR in 1989, Malmaison's always been my favorite source -- not only for objects, but for information. And who better than Roger Prigent to tell you the who, what, where, why and how behind a wonderful console or a great chandelier? Roger's patience, kindness and generosity know no bounds, and his passion for design will continue to inspire us all."
