Get The Look: French Apartment

  • est living JR House 1 750x540

    It’s no secret that the French are synonymous with an innate sense of style and when it comes to making a home, they adopt the same laissez-faire attitude towards interiors as they do with their personal style.

    Much like their enviable wardrobes, the French build their home around a few curated classics leaving the rest to evolve effortlessly with their personality. Alongside a taste for elegance and an eye for iconic 20th-century pieces, they have a gift for pairing family heirlooms with modern-day masterpieces.

    Looking for a little influence, it doesn’t get any more French than Nicolas Schuybroek Architects’ JR Apartment. Located in the Parisian arrondissement of Montparnasse, it impeccably weaves the clients personal tastes with a sense of history, grace and practical luxury. True ‘masters les arts décoratifs’ since, well- forever, we’ve rounded up a collection of beautiful French inspired objects to lust over below.

    Herringbone Floors

    Considered the backbone to the classic Haussmann apartment look, Herringbone floors are worth investing in the best. In our opinion, Admonter nails (pun intended) this classic European pattern with a modern finish.

    Cylindrical Lamps

    Parisian studio Haos worked alongside French artisans to create this quirky art deco inspired collection of cylindrical lighting. An eloquent mix of materials, these beauties feature timber, ceramic and brass discs stacked on top of each other. J’adore.

    Trudon Candles

    Established in 1643 Trudon Candles capture the very essence of French life- in perfume form. The La Marquise Trudon Candle rekindles the sharpness of Madame de Pompadour and the voluptuous charms of the Rocaille with verbena, lemon and roses. Trés belle!

    A Pierre Jeanneret Classic

    If it doesn’t feature a Pierre Jeanneret armchair, can you even call it French? We think not. In our opinion, Pierre Jeanneret is easily one of the most influential designers of the 20th century- and that’s worth every penny.
