The beautifully refurbished apartment featured in this post is a wonderful work of art. The interior designer of this apartment is Gerard Faivre, one of the most famous interior designers in the world. His goal is to meet the clients’ highest expectations. He offers fully refurbished, ready to live apartments with design furniture, artwork, full concierge service and state-of-the-art technology. He claims that the City of Light, Paris inspires him daily. This luxurious art apartment is located on the right bank of Seine, near Montaigne avenues and Champs Elysée, on Rue Lincoln. This renovation truly reflects the vibrant colors and pronounced opulence of Paris.
For the renovation of this luxurious apartment, Gerard Faivre took inspiration from the Parisian Haute Couture. The original Haussmann style layout with high ceilings, marble fireplace, and parquet flooring was a little outdated. Faivre created a new layout and changed the theme of the décor to give it a comparatively modern look.
The new design simulates a large fashion house with an elegant lobby that leads to several lounges and two suites arranged around the living room. The apartment flaunts a baroque decoration with oval ceilings and rococo style boiserie. The prominent use of colors like white, grey, black and beige adds a touch of sobriety and luxury to the place. The furnishing and artwork are all indeed state-of-the-art and complements the grandeur of the decor.
Two Door Entryway
The apartment has three lounges or sitting areas, all designed to display a different setting. The lobby forms the entry to all the rooms. It has a big chandelier hanging from the ceiling which makes the whole lounge look regal and modern. It makes the small area look notably well lit and cheerful. The comfortable round center seat along with the checkered rug is a surprisingly good contrast.
The two mirrors beside the door give the place a modern look. A comfy seat and designer side table adorn the otherwise sparse furnishings. Separate innovative coat racks add glamour to the surroundings.
The Modern First Lounge
The Apartment with Amazing Art showing in the picture give a beautiful look. The painting of art hanging in living room wall along with a beautiful design on white celing making the perfect combination of design and art.
The first lounge area has a modern and comfortable look. The L-shaped sofa and an “Archibald” armchair by Jean Marie Massaud provide enough room to host a small gathering.
The antique frame along the mirror together with the authentic fireplace give the place a rich feel.
The painter Dupuis Gilles reproduced the marble veins of the coffee table on the walls surprisingly well. A large mirror cleverly hides the TV set. For the sofa, Gérard Faivre used the “Cherie” fabric, which resembles those worn by Coco Chanel.
Wall-mounted lights give an effect of understated opulence. An authentic painting further completes the look.
Classic White Themed Second Lounge

A Chen Ting-Hung bronze sculpture from Chuan Gallery – Taiwan, gives the room an antique look.
The Dining Room and Kitchen
A set of stunning designer chairs complements the markedly large square dining table. A huge chandelier again graces the plain white ceiling. Two truly brilliant pieces of art adorn the walls. Sliding doors separate the kitchen from the dining area.
While the dining room is all white, the kitchen sports a darker theme. Black sliding doors complement the also-black countertop of the kitchen. The place above the counter, as well as the ceiling, have lights to illuminate the room.
The counter is big enough to hold an open cooking stove on one side as well as a sink on the other. There still remains space in between for storage and service area. The white cabinets bring a sort of lightness to the dark decor.
Classic Yet Modern Suites
Both the suites in the apartment reflect a modern yet classic setting. The marble flooring goes well with the rococo ceilings. The contrast of the significantly old architecture with modern colors enhances the luxurious feel of the apartment.
The first suite has a dark theme with black, white and grey colors dominating the decor. The wallpaper behind the bed reproduces the leather pattern used in the closet. This significantly enhances the simple colors of the decor and emphasizes the bed. Grey tones of the bedroom walls complement the white flooring.
The stylish bedside lamps and decorative wall-mounted lights certainly add a touch of grandeur to the simple setup. Additionally, the open shelves lining the wall on the right side of the bed can be used for display as well as storage.
A simple door leads to the bathroom which is similarly done in the same black and white theme.
The second suite is done in contemporary white and wood colors. The white and brown curtains accentuate the theme along with providing privacy. In this suite, Faivre has foregone bedside lamps in favor of wall-mounted lamps and ceiling lights which don’t just match the decor, but also enhance it.
Wallpaper “Pied de Poule“, a tailor’s classic, worn by Chanel and Dior, is used behind the bed and in the bathroom. The bedroom and bathroom are essentially a single room separated only by a wall behind the bed.
Two sinks with ample space for vanity and a plush seat beside a big bathtub with all the facilities gives the suite a rich and luxurious feel.
Luxurious Art Apartment Bathroom
Rich wallpaper “Burlesque” by Christian Benini for the wall converts the plain bathroom into a place of luxury. The paper was specifically chosen for remembering the income often used by Balenciaga.
The Backside Garden
The backside of the apartment has a small and beautifully maintained garden. It adds a spot of greenery to the surroundings.
