Vintage Paris

Images of this stunning Paris apartment are front and center on my image wall. The austere industrial environment of this light filled loft is the perfect backdrop for the homeowners interesting collection of vintage furniture. The Prouve designed dining set above seems ideally suited to the space, as does the carefully placed collection of midcentury modern pieces from well know designers in the living area, below. A coveted collection like this is often difficult to display, without feeling a bit like you are walking into a museum. These rooms work because they are balanced and spare, providing the space and presence these pieces deserve. The grouping of furniture is done with deliberate scale, color and texture consideration, enabling each of the pieces to be read both individually as sculpture in the space, as well as part of a dynamic collection.
