MEET THE SISTERS
We are two sisters, born in Rennes, France. Alexia moved to the US a long time ago and married a true American. They have three beautiful kids and now all live in Austin. Ariane joined her sister a few years later,, crossing the Atlantic with husband and family (three beautiful kids as well... of course).
The adventure started in September 2012 when we took the giant step of switching careers and brought our dream to reality. Authenticaa (with 2 A's for Ariane and Alexia) was born! Together, we decided to offer a French and European touch to the American Home Decor market and looked for authenticity, using elemental material: metal and reclaimed wood mainly. Buying local and reducing our footprint to the minimum became another commitment.
Our art is the fruit of a long process, from research, design to trial, production, quality control and fun! Inspired by nature, most of our designs revolve around it: flowers, leaves, animals, and organic shapes. Our artwork is unique, meaningful and aims to speak to you, personally.
We hope you'll enjoy our work as much as we enjoyed designing it!.
