The Eiffel Tower, in all its 986-foot-high glory, is framed by the long, thin window of this Paris flat, home of Parisian art gallery director Didier Krzentowski.
Parisian gardens are some of the most magnificent works of foliage art in the world, so it makes perfect sense that the Dimanche family would choose to bring such natural beauty into their Left Bank home. Botanist Patrick Blanc built this 20-by-23 foot indoor garden wall in the family's living room.
When ex-pat architect Michael Herrman purchased this Parisian flat with his French wife, it had been nearly untouched since the time it was built. The old stone wall serves as a backdrop to the modern dining table. Natural light flows into the space through the glass ceiling. Herrman's renovation of this 18th-century home was inspired by a Le Corbusier design from the 1930s.
Jean-Paul Gaultier re-imagined this 2,700-square-foot Paris apartment, previously owned by French architect Jacques Carlu, in modern-meets-avante-garde splendor. On the terrace, a patchwork of mirrors reflect the Eiffel Tower's grandeur, which the designer referred to as "our everyday companion."
For Felix Claus, a 1930s rental apartment is more than an idyllic pied-à-terre—it’s an architectural gem that requires reverence and careful tending.
