"Good design, like good painting, cooking, architecture or whatever you like, is the manifestation of the capacity of the human spirit to transcend its limitations."
George Nelson, Designer

Étalon was the French word for the measurement system that existed before the Metric System. Today, the word represents a measuring standard or gauge. We have chosen "Étalon" to represent our company’s desire to measure our results by a set of high standards and to pay homage to our French heritage and deep roots in the City of New Orleans and Louisiana.
Location has always been the single most important factor in real estate. Professional design utilizing a Registered Interior Designer merges aesthetics with health, safety and welfare that impacts occupants. Combining an expertise of location and design greatly enhances and influences the ethos, culture and bottom line of all businesses and home owners. Elements of your company can be amplified to create an atmosphere to help attract and retain your most valuable asset: *Intellectual Capital.
A Sense of Place, defined in the, Art of Geography, “is a combination of characteristics that makes a place special and unique. It involves the human experience in a landscape, the local knowledge and folklore.” Born and raised in New Orleans, the Directors of Étalon have considered the city to be a special location, fostering an appreciation for place. The Crescent City, with her old world charm, is considered to be one of the most European cities in the United States. The unique architecture, music, cuisine and attitudes of her inhabitants are connected and influenced by a strong sense of place that exists there. The natives conjure up names such as ‘The Big Easy’ and ‘NOLA’ and use local vernacular “laissez les bon temps rouler” or “let the good times roll” that have become a rallying cry to slow down and enjoy life. Our innate viewpoints on location have been further expanded because we are now living and working in New Orleans and 'The Capital of the South’, Atlanta. A two-city lifestyle has increased our Sense of Place influencing site selection and design decisions emphasizing the combination of factors that make places and spaces special. The art of Étalon Studio is finding ways to accentuate location and concept through design in order to reach the goals of your project.
Thinking locally is only one part of the equation. The world is becoming more connected and trends are changing at a rapid pace for Real Estate, Interior Design and Lifestyle trades which are affected through global integration. Étalon Studio has global perspective and knowledge gained by systematically following these global channels in order to stay ahead of trends in real estate, design, furnishings, fashion and food & drink. This process allows us to pass on valuable information that affects outcomes on projects and on your bottom line. We are profoundly influenced by how people use and react to spaces. Good design is achieved when the space and aesthetics meet the requirements of the people that use it.
