A design professional since 1993, Marie-Noëlle Swiderski started her international design career as an intern at ECART in Paris, Andrée Putman’s design studio at the time. After diverse roles in Paris, Montreal and London, Marie-Noelle moved to Dubai in 2006 to launch a comprehensive architectural and interior design studio, Blanchard. In 2012, she was ranked 9th Most Influential Designer in the Middle East on the CID's Top 50 Power List. A Registered Interior Designer with the British Institute of Interior Design (BIID), Marie-Noëlle has now returned to London at the head of GALUCHAT, the new identity for her international design practice. Working seamlessly from London, Marie-Noëlle happily undertakes projects close to home or a little further afield. Currently in the books are several houses and flats in London but also 2 chalets in the French Alps, a retreat in Nice and a listed flat in Copenhagen. Varying in scope and budget, the projects undertaken go from the ground up to the last fork, hanging family photo or art galleries, staging homes that need a little help selling or bringing show properties to life.
