A gallery, a workshop, a studio – where the juxtaposition of traditional Mexican folk objects combines with antiques and mid century exquisite objects.  A multi faceted life envisioned by French antiques dealer and decorator Emmanuel Picault.

The gallery was established in 2000 and flourished.  Emmanuel’s style in conjunction with Mexican aesthetic proved a good match, and in 2010 the architectural design studio emerged; working  on commercial and residential projects.

Chic By Accident is a fantastic destination.  Every artifact, big and small, new and old, are so carefully selected.  Truly, we wanted half the inventory, but its a bit difficult not living in DF! (although they do ship worldwide). We ended up getting a mescal flask (delicous!), a large silver nautilus shaped champagne bucket and a very dark and bizarre Huichol  skull (still among our treasures).

On our visit we met Emmanuel Picault, quite a charming man, who made us feel at home; inviting us to join him, and his friends who were visiting, to share in some Mescal.

Thank you Emmanuel for your wonderful space and hospitality!
