THEY ARE WILO & GROVE: FANNY SAULAY AND OLIVIA DE FAYET, TWO PARISIANS WITH TALENT...

They were former experts in modern art at the world's largest auction house. In less than ten years, they have come to understand three strong points: the art market is still an unknown and almost virgin territory for almost all of us; artistic talents are hiding everywhere and waiting to be discovered, a discovery that may often take many years; the desire to surround ourselves with objects that make us vibrate with emotions for a long time is ever more present.


WILO3

Snubbing the classic circuits, Fanny Saulay and Olivia de Fayet present works by young artists at an affordable price in their Wilo & Grove gallery. It is an apartment in Paris where you visit by appointment.

WILO2Their mission

To prove that art can be beautiful without being inaccessible, engaging without being ultra conceptual, and selective without being exclusive! Since September, when they created this association, Fanny Saulay and Olivia de Fayet have set market prices in motion: they have arranged an actual apartment where, by appointment, they receive customers who would never have had the courage or desire to walk through the door of a traditional art gallery. Fanny Saulay, for example, who lives in an old typography of the 9th arrondissement, exhibits paintings, sculptures, photos, and other objects, most often by emerging artists in whom they believe in. "We like objects that have something graphic. Art is not just a conceptual thing or a performance", say these two design lovers who, in their e-shop, propose the geometric compositions of Vanessa Bouziges (handcrafted in Morocco) and lamps from the Barcelonian Ferran Valls.

Pop-up stores (Temporal shops)

Last December they opened their first pop-up store in Le Marais. They decorated it with antique furniture that was also on sale in the shop. A few months later, they repeated this experience with a new store on Rue Racine in Paris' 6th arrondissement to expose their catalog fund (which contains photos of the Gilles de Fayet forests, the collage of windows by Anne-Laure Maison, and the "pointillist" paintings by Marjolaine de La Chapelle...) and to present their new lightning strikes in a place other than "their home". They always do so with the same desire to "disinhibit" the potential buyer by proposing quality works that the buyer, in turn, will want to keep.

WILO4Their philosophy

BE YOUNG
Considering we do not have time to wait to be 100 years old, and as there is no need to be a billionaire to start buying works of art – do it right from the cradle!

BE BOLD
 We too often hear you saying that you do not feel confident about your taste in art. If you like it, there is no need to look further. Please, dare! We will be here to help you!

BE WILD
The unexpected, the "never-seen-before", the one of kind: make your home a place that resembles you an no one else.

BE SMART
Why yet another pair of sneakers, when at the same or almost the same price, we can offer (offer ourselves) a work or an object that lasts and changes our lives?

Marion & Nicole - Design

My name is Marion. I fell in love with interior design when I was 18, rummaging through the Flea Market for unusual objects to decorate my apartment. I turned this into my profession, becoming a personal shopper for often foreign, clients looking for the best of what the capital has to offer. As for me, it’s different. I went to a school of design and then opened my own boutique in Paris. A photo-shoot for a decoration magazine led to our intense meeting. Whether the 50’s or Empire, art of the table or floral arts, our tastes and skills are complementary. The result is always incredibly super-Parisian!
