double g gives a contemporary new look to...

A 19th C. Paris Apartment

Scroll To View



Set within a Haussmann building in the ninth arrondissement, this 19th century apartment by Double G has employed a careful architectural reconfiguration and an eclectic mix of furnishings to achieve an entirely contemporary abode. As they say, it’s all in the details and this space had me at that red stitching in the rug. Neutrals with a hit of primary… love it.



In the living room a 19th century settee sits below a painting by artist Peter Martensen.



The chairs are by Christophe Delcourt.



The table lamp, the Danish coffee table and the three-dimensional work on the wall are from the Marché Paul Bert.



The designers choose to go dark in the library with anthracite grey walls. The red leather chair is vintage 1960s.



The dining room boasts an eclectic mix of new and old. The contemporary oak and slate table was designed by Double G, and the chairs are mid-century Danish.



The porcelain Mykiss Fish ‘chandelier’ is available through Dutch by Design.



The kitchen island and cabinets are of solid oak, the counters of Zimbabwe granite and the faucet is by Franke.



In the study, an industrial style floor lamp sits below a work of art by Ethan Murrow.



Outside the bedroom hangs a work by Milo Lockett.



Just beyond an Augustine JIELDE pendant light, lies a photo of Picasso by Lucien Clergue.



In the bedroom – a vintage armchair and desk.



In the bath, two lithographs by Kazimir Malevich hang above a Devon & Devon Admiral series tub. The porcelain sink is available through Volevatch.

    Beautiful space. Do you have an idea what colour the living room walls are painted? It’s just the right contrast between the that and the trim.

    Love the granite counter-tops. I think the dark stain on the surface. really great stuff. I think it is awesome how people can make such amazing rooms work with such simple Ideas. I would really like to redo my kitchen like this. Good sleek classic look. I think it would be really nice to get some durable granite counter space as well. I think it would handle punishment the kids put it through a little bit.
