Living in Style: the Paris apartment of Philippe Rapin and Sylvie de Chirée


Living in Style: the Paris apartment of Philippe Rapin and Sylvie de Chirée

Ian Phillips from Elle Decor gave us an inspirational post on the parisian apartment of Philippe Rapin and Sylvie de Chirée, the editorial director for Elle Decor in France. The post was originally published  by  Hélène Dumont for Elle Decoration France.

Located on the right bank of the Seine, the apartment is in a tipical parisian building dated from 1910. “I often say this apartment is like a theater, where the objects are our actors and we’re the directors,” says Sylvie de Chirée.

“In a sitting room of the Paris apartment that ELLE DECORATION France editor Sylvie de Chirée shares with her husband, furniture dealer Philippe Rapin, a circa-1970 Marc Cavell mobile hangs above a 1968 sofa by Archizoom; the 1930 floor lamp at left is attributed to Jules Leleu, the other is by Pietro Chiesa for FontanaArte, the cabinet doors were painted by José Maria Sert, the painting is by Gérard Drouillet, and the 19th-century rug came from a French monastery; the marble columns and painted walls are original.”

In the living room, armchairs by Harvey Probber flank cocktail tables by Janette Laverrière, the shelves are custom made, and the artworks are by Marc Cavell; the wall decoration by Maison Jansen dates to the 1950s, and the marble fireplace is original.”  And we say it is the perfect use for the vintage Sinatra Lamp by Delightfull.

Chairs by Asiatides surround a table by Marcel Wanders in the kitchen; the paper pendants are by Paola Navone, the framed circa-1958 metal plates are by Piero Fornasetti, and the tile flooring dates to 1960.”

The master bedroom features a mirror and side table by Asiatides, and an Art Deco desk with a 1930 armchair covered in a Pierre Frey velvet.(…) An Art Deco cabinet in the bedroom is covered with a Fornasetti wallpaper, and the crystal chandelier is 18th century.

The marble mosaic tiles on the walls and floor of the master bath are original to the apartment; the 19th-century Chinese-style light fixture was found at a flea market in L’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue.”
