Pierre Guariche was born in 1926, son of a family of Parisian goldsmiths.[1]He studied at the École nationale supérieure des arts décoratifs, where he was taught by René Gabriel.[2] He graduated in the Spring of 1949.[1] He became a member of the Union des artistes modernes (UAM).[3] He joined the studio of another of his teachers, Marcel Gascoin. He began to exhibit his own work in the Salon des Arts Ménagers and the Salon des Artistes Décorateurs.[1] In the period after World War II (1939–45) there was increased interest in using new methods and materials for mass production of furniture. Manufacturers of materials such as formicaplywood, aluminum, and steel sponsored the salons of the Société des artistes décorateurs. Designers who exhibited their experimental work at the salons in this period included Guariche, René-Jean CailletteJoseph-André MotteJean ProuvéCharlotte Perriand, Antoine Philippon and Jacqueline Lecoq.[4]
