This exclusive traditional Parisian apartment of Haussmanian era was furbished and styled in modern clean style by London based interior designer of scandinavian origin Jessica Vedel. Referencing furniture pieces such as Ronaldo Tufty and with an outside exterior and fireplace courtesy of Bertrand Benoit, this apartment is crudely minimalistic but a triumph of design in its own right.
Throughout the 1950s, Mouille designed large, angular, insect-like wall mounted and standing lamps with several arms and smaller, more curved wall-sconces. Some of his best-known designs from the period are his “Oeil” lamp (1953), “Flammes” (1954) and “Saturn” (1958). He worked to achieve a kinetic, sculptural aesthetic that evoked a sense of movement in space. He also claimed his lighting fixtures were “a reaction to the Italian models, which were beginning to invade the market in 1950,” and which he thought to be “too complicated.”
The bathroom made it into March issue (2014) of UK print magazine Elle Decoration as full page illustration.
With a faux wall separating the room in two, the designer cleverly creates a dressing up space behind it, while moulding has been used extensively to give the whole flat character. The flat grey colour is a perfect match to the herringbone floor.
The Camerich Alison Bed would look perfect here.
It comes in a number of fabrics as well as leather, including white leather.
