For twenty years from Paris to London, via Gstaad, Tel Aviv, and Monaco, Charles Zana has shared his taste and expertise in the most beautiful residential and public interiors around the world. Paris-based, the interior designer likes to think he doesn’t have a set aesthetic.

I’m not into hard-and-fast recipes, what’s nice is to create an atmosphere specific to each space.” – Charles Zana

To his clients, Charles Zana embodies the best of what France has to offer. An architect rigorously trained at Paris’s École des Beaux-Arts and steeped in his country’s rich decorative arts history and tradition of fine craftsmanship, Zana is also a man who wears his voracious curiosity about contemporary art and Italian design on his sleeve.

For each project, he has a dual approach. First, that of a rigorous architect well versed in construction work, seeking comfort, fluid circulations, details, harmony, symmetry and discrete technology, but also capable of a nod to assimilating, when necessary, the history of places, of appropriating and of revisiting, of magnifying or of “twisting”.

He doesn’t force a style upon his clients. He’s much more versatile than many of his peers.” – Marie Kalt, Editor In Chief At AD France

The interior designs Charles Zana creates don’t share recognizable traits. There’s always a sense of balance, a certain orderliness and a tremendous precision. Charles Zana himself notes a distinctive palette (“harmonies of greys and greens”) and the use of more traditional architectural detailing, often in the form of panelling and cornices inspired by 18th-century models.

Beyond the profession of architect or interior designerCharles Zana offers interiors, artistic and full of meaning, but also warm and responsive to the lives of the occupants. He wants to herald a new tradition, one where classicism is revisited and combined with emotion, not the bard of interiors braggarts.
