Valerie Carmet

Valerie Carmet Studio, based in New York City, designs beautiful, complex and joyful public and private spaces.
One of a kind interior art collectibles create a unique and unmatched atmosphere for the home. Using a combination of ancient and cutting-edge techniques, Valerie uses vintage and esoteric materials including mosaic tiles, stained glass, ceramics, and even discarded toys to create original works that provoke conversation and engage the senses.
Whether commissioned by the client or as part of a limited series by the designer, each piece is a meticulous and singular creation, striking the observer by its originality and attaining a point of “living” status among the owner’s environment.
Valerie Carmet’s skilled designers can also create a wide range of  stunning pieces for all indoor and outdoor spaces.

With a degree in International Policy, French born Valerie Carmet also studied mosaics in a number of Italian studios and for 3 years at the Anandamali Studio in New York City.
Valerie eventually taught the art of mosaics to a downtown clientele while honing her own expertise in both mosaics and mixed media to create large-scale commissions and furniture. Her clients have included Pfizer, NYU Hospital, Ritz Carlton, numerous restaurants and nightclubs, as well as a global group of individual clients and collectors. She created and installed large murals for The Rockefeller Building (“Top of the Rock”) and The Manhattan Youth-Downtown Community Center, who described her work as “an expression of light, joy and good feelings.” Describing her approach, Valerie says she is visually stimulated by “beauty, colors, and aesthetics”.

Today,Valerie Carmet has expanded her artistic field to Pop Art and had created a collection of 3 D wooden frames silhouette boxes , filled with collectible or vintage and recycled toys called ” ToyBox : Not intended for small children”. Tere are limited edition of 10+2 AP signed and numbered by the artist.

Describing her approach with this new medium, Valerie says: My kids’ discarded toys gathering dust were too sweet and strange to toss and inspired this collection….I used the old and the new, the vintage and the collectible as my new palette of paint and color to PLAY with …

I invite people to join me in my world of play. In my early years, i unfortunately did not get to be “a child”.  As a result, by the time I was free of the constraints, I had to lead the life of an adult. Now, I take toys and play with them artistically, assembling them in a way to invite you to relive with me the experience of your childhood playtime.

“…I also see beauty in what others might dismiss but when placed together, a new beauty is formed. Little things that cross my view become part of my work. A beach full of broken clams inspired the shell frames and my kids’ discarded toys gathering dust were too sweet and strange to toss, so I began the “ToyBox Series”. Broken and chipped dishes collected for years were used in my Picassiette furniture. I like to give things a second chance, a second life, and make art from them…

A creative designer with meticulous technique and a vivid imagination combined with a playful and personal approach, Valerie has created a one-of-a-kind resource for both the private and corporate client and the collector.
