Set within the ninth arrondissement and in a Georges-Eugène Haussmann building – whose vision still dominates central Paris – this 19th century apartment by Double G has employed a careful architectural reconfiguration and an eclectic mix of furnishings to achieve an entirely contemporary home.
A classic French interior filled with modern furnishings, this “New Minimalism or “ornate austerity” is captivating. There is something quite enchanting about the contrast of grand Napoleon III crown mouldings with the clean and sleek lines of modernity. A background palette of white walls and ceilings with black herringbone parquetry, the apartment is filled with treasures – paintings by Peter Martensen, a porcelain fish chandelier by Mykiss and lithographs by Kazimir Malevich. Sophisticated, curated and tailored this Parisian apartment feels masculine and warm.
