In an unexpected arrondissement of Paris, designer Jean-Louis Deniot applies his signature vision of low-key luxe to a run-down apartment.
In the living room of 's Paris apartment, the walls and ceiling feature a mural evocative of the sky, by Mathias Kiss. A pair of 1960s Knoll sofas, upholstered in a Zimmer + Rohde fabric, and a Directoire chair surround a cocktail table by Ado Chale, and a parchment side table by Paul Frankl holds a lamp from the '60s. A photograph by Eric Baudelaire hangs above a custom-made Turkish-marble mantel; the candlesticks are by Bjorn Wiinblad.
The living room's Cubist lamp is from the 1930s, and the rug is custom made.
The 18th-century family portrait hangs in the library, whose walls are covered in oak paneling and a bark-inspired printed canvas; a vintage Gio Ponti chair is paired with a Jaques Adnet desk and C. Jeré lamp, and Denoit designed the rug and sofa, which is upholstered in a Mulberry Home wool.
In the entry hall, a pedestal by Denoit holds a Philippe Angot sculpture; the light fixtures are by Gino Sarfatti, and the walls are painted to match the marble floor.
The credenza in the entry is by Finn Juhl and Niels Vodder, and the mirror is by Hervé Van der Straeten; the striped vessel is by Wedgewood, and the lamp is by Stiffel.
Denoit designed the brass bench, the photography is the Valérie Belin, and the sconce is by Georges Jouve.
Jacques Adnet chairs surround a 1940s dining table by Roger Thibier, the chandelier is from the 1840s, and the rug is custom made; the drawing is by Konstantin Kakanias, the sconce is by Willy Daro, and the walls are sheathed in a custom-made wallpaper.
In the master bath, the cabinet is painted to mimic the plaster-fluted walls, the custom-made medicine cabinet is flanked by Felix Agostini sconces, and Duravit sink has fittings by Dornbracht.
Alternating strips of French and Portuguese limestone in the guest bath emulate the proportions of a Daniel Buren artwork; the Duravit tub has Dornbracht fittings.
