tour of an art deco-influenced Paris apartment

In a variation of blue, white and pink, an apartment with a view of the sky and the Eiffel Tower, renovated by the agency GCG Architectes. Between Arts Deco influences and contemporary design, frescoes, mosaics and tapestries harmonize with serenity.

Like an extension of the sky, an invitation to travel, the fresco by the artist Sacha Floch Poliakoff evokes a landscape of ancient Greece. This living room with huge volumes, the architects wanted to envelop it: round woodwork, deep sofa, Moroso, soft hand-knotted carpet, Maison S… Designed by GCG Architectes, the coffee table is a sculpture in the shape of a lotus whose handcrafted ribs in teak seem to vibrate. On top of a ceramic vase and a hammered metal sculpture, Homata.
