Our mission at Par Excellence is to represent the finest French artisans and unveil their exceptionnal know-how. Craftsmanship is for sure closely tied to interior design and architecture, but there is also artistry in the carefully-crafted pieces that our partners make everyday.

Why ? Because they produce works that transcend functionality and that are appreciated for their beauty and emotional power as well.

Therefor, at Par Excellence, we are quite sensible to Art in general and if you’re too, you should deep dive into SHOTnLUST, a digital visual poetic library about Art with a capital A.



If you wanna know about Photography and its masters Peter Knapp, Nan Goldin, Larry Clarck, Diane Arbus, Helmut Newton among others…

If you’re deeply connected to Cinema and references as Ingmar Bergman, Jacques Demy, Elia Kazan, Dennis Hopper or Jim Jarmusch.

If you are obsessed with sculptures, artistic installations, performances, painting, graphic arts and want to know about Marina Abramović and Ulay, Mona Hatoum, Linder and Gordon Matta Clark.

If you feel the need to learn about Dance and Pina Bausch, Akram Khan or Rudolf Noureev.

Finally if Architecture is something that appeals to you, and you want to see how design, art and landscapes are all elements of this dynamic that architecture is, then SHOTnLUST is the place you should explore to rediscover Alvar Aalto, Oscar Niemeyer, Ricardo Boffil, Tadao Ando and Alvaro Siza Vieira.
