R&Y Augousti was founded in 1989 by husband-wife duo Ria & Yiouri Augousti. Their artistic backgrounds brought them together as innovators in their field by reviving the artisanal techniques of shagreen and other exotic materials that were predominant in the Art Deco period of the 1930s.
Through their mix of vintage and contemporary design their furniture and home accessories brand were met with worldwide praise.
From a debut collection for the luxurious Hotel Crillon in Paris, to exclusive collections for luxury stores like Barneys New York & Bergdorf Goodman, they eventually opened their flagship store on the famous Rue Du Bac in 7th arrondissement of Paris, France.
