Christian Liaigre (10 August 1943 – 2 September 2020) was a French interior designer and architect. Born into a family from Vendée, Liaigre entered the École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts and the École nationale supérieure des arts décoratifs before meeting Alberto Giacometti. Giacometti led him to the workshop of Constantin Brâncusi, but Liaigre left to help his grandfather breed racehorses. In 1981, he designed a collection of cabinets for Nobilis. In 1985, he opened his first store, and he designed the Hôtel Montalembert in 1990. In 1997, he designed The Mercer Hotel in New York City. His clients included Larry Gagosian, Marina Abramovic, Bryan Adams, Calvin Klein, Rupert Murdoch, and Carole Bouquet. The Wall Street Journal described Liaigre as a "great minimalist". He owned boutiques in London, Chicago, Bangkok, Saint Barthélemy, Kuala Lumpur, and Paris.

Liaigre was married to Deborah Comte, with whom he had a son. He died on 2 September 2020 at the age of 77.
