Duplex, Paris 1er

To obtain the elegant union of the ancient and the modern by connecting 2 apartments one to the other. Such was the desire of this couple passionate about art.
The initial apartment is very classical, with herringbone parquet floors, elaborate cornices and splendid moldings. A Haussmannian par excellence. The second, upstairs, is less traditional.

The upper part, modern in its approach to materials and colors, houses a magnificent master bedroom. On the floor, a deep and warm chocolate-stained oak wood sets the mood. A walnut bookcase, dressed with cupboards, serves as a headboard. Its niche painted in soft tones brings a contrast and a play of colors to the graphic aestheticism.

The very refined dressing room with chromed brass doors and mirror, brings shine and reflections, and leads us into the bathroom in white Carrara marble and dark wood.
A desire to sublimate the smallest detail, to honor the excellence of French craftsmanship gives life to a dressing table with mirrors in triptych, upholstered with natural fibers treated on the surface with coatings rarely used and little seen.

A lava stone fireplace adds extra warmth to this very elegant room.
Also upstairs, a gym, with a layout of mirrors, was designed with technical coatings and perfect acoustics so as not to disturb the floor below. A nod to the dance classes of the mistress of the place.

A second spacious and comfortable bedroom with a masculine touch leads to a beautiful solid oak staircase that leads to a small TV lounge, an anteroom and transitional room between the 2 apartments.
We enter a very large living room where numerous pieces of furniture, antique pieces, fill the space with chic. The walls host works of contemporary art collected over time. Accessories, lights and unique works of art complete this place with neutral and soft tones. Swamp oak, slightly gray, is used for some of the furnishings.

An adjoining dining room is covered with woodwork, rounded cornices or hidden cupboards. Here too, works of art find their place on the walls.
The kitchen in chocolate-stained oak and corian worktop is entrusted to the Boffi house.

The strength of this project is to have been able to combine the two spaces with great elegance by choosing very high-end materials, pushing refinement to the extreme. The very strong impulse of art takes us through the years of a life rich in many travels and reveals the personality of this very inspiring couple.
