Welcome to the Seventh Arrondissement home of one of the world’s most sought after architect/designers – Joseph Dirand. With a mix of minimal lines, luxurious materials and an undeniably French flavor, many the Paris apartment’s architectural details (trims, moldings…) are actually done in the style of a 17th century Italian interior. As the architect stated in an interview with T Magazine, he had hoped to find an apartment with all the traditional details but for this space he had to create them. “It’s not a showroom, or something to show clients… It’s just my home.”
In the master bedroom – a suede Oscar Niemeyer chair sits across from Azucena sconces (similar available through 1stdibs).
In the Kitchen – a pair of Jean Prouvé chairs cluster around a vintage Ettore Sottsass table.
Just above a heavily veined marble sink we see the marmorino – pigmented stucco – that runs throughout the home.
In classic Dirand style, the bath is clad in more dramatically veined marble. The fixtures are from Waterworks.
In the living room - seating and desk are vintage Pierre Jeanneret, the coffee table is Ron Arad, the wood stool Le Corbusier, and the painting Lawrence Carroll.
