France, Paris


A family home in the countryside south of the French capital exudes the typically “bourgeois bohemian” charm that distinguishes many Parisian homes.

The homeowners – a young couple with three children – wanted to maintain the original layout of the house, jealously preserving its architectural features, and then chose functional, contemporary furnishings that create a fascinating contrast with the classic decorative style of the building.

In the living room dominated by large windows overlooking the garden, a corner composition of the Adda seating system has become the favorite gathering place of the entire family that spends much of its time here. Numerous side/tray tables lend the sofa added versatility. A Bangkok ottoman and upholstered Magi daybed contribute dynamic flair.

In the dining room, the oval Zefiro table is surrounded by Feel Good chairs and armchairs upholstered in a soft, sophisticated lobster-color velvet. Dishes, glassware and other table necessities are neatly stored in the sumptuous mahogany Piuma hutch, conveniently placed near the table.

Much loved by the homeowners is the small but enchanting winter garden, home to many plants and a comfortable Ortigia Outdoor armchair.

In the bedroom, the clean lines and generous padding of the Groundpiece bed, paired with the Feel Good ottoman and Jiff and Fly coffee/side tables, create restful harmony.

Beside the fireplace, the Thomas armchair offers an inviting reading area.

During the summer, the family spends much of its time outdoors. The garden in front of the house hosts the Zante sofa, with its sophisticated structure in iroko wood, an Ortigia Outdoor armchair, a Phuket ottoman and Fly Outdoor coffee table.
