Paris: classic soul, contemporary function


In this elegant and charming Parisian apartment the classic soul of the building shines accompanied by contemporary comfort and style. Fireplaces, frames, millwork of late 1800 were restored to create a background for a young couple lifestyle. The sofa Groundpiece is designed by Aldo Citterio for Flexform.



Many pieces are vintage, like this amazing desk and the re-upholstered green chair in the main bedroom. The scheme color for the whole apartment envelope goes from off white to luminescent grey to charcoal grey. Great choice to make colored pieces pop unexpectedly.



Danish 1960’s chair surround a table made of oak and natural stone designed by Studio Double G, the unusual suspension light is Mykiss Fish by Minke Van Voorthuizen.



In the modern kitchen the cabinet has mirrored doors to maintain the antique atmosphere.



Another vintage discover at Flea-market Paul Bert: the red-orange leather chair and stool. A pop of vibrant color against the charcoal walls and millwork.



The bathroom is stunning, pure luxury, with a carved fireplace mantel, antique mirror, chandelier.



Devon & Devon tub, Stella faucets.





3 dimensional art on the wall, found at Marché Paul Bert, like the black leather chair and industrial lamp in the previous image.

The young couple has obviously a good eye in discovering treasures to add interest to an already stunning surrounding.
