From the sophisticated and accomplished Parisian design firm of Gilles & Boissier comes a striking and cutting-edge minimalist residence. The furniture is simplistic – in all neutrals, but with classical bones, echoing the apartment itself. The rooms are painted white, but the architectural detailing in the apartment is rich and ornate. What I might love most is their ability to create a space that feels relaxed and sophisticated at the same time. It might be the art collection, or how there is nothing “filling-in” the rooms, they simply focus your attention to the serious and well-crafted pieces that create the entire atmosphere.
Solid white upholstery and an uncompetitive jute rug place emphasis on the pieces of furniture – the detailing in the wood, the careful proportions and the varying wood tones.

This apartment certainly doesn’t feel lived-in, but it’s an interesting study in balance and intention. I also always appreciate a contrast in architecture and decor, which was accomplished beautifully in between the ornate detailing and simple furnishings.
