July 30, 2020
A new luxury apartment has emerged in Paris and it is inside where all the gems hide. A trip down vintage times merged with a modern design that will make anyone fall in love with it. Home Decor Ideas took a scoop inside and we are ready to make you fall head over heels with this modern abode. There aren’t enough adjectives to describe the multilayered Paris luxury apartment of antique dealer and designer Philippe Rapin and his partner in crime. Philippe Rapin and Sylvie de Chirée thrive in this Right Bank apartment with inimitable views and a dynamic collection.

On the fifth floor of a Right Bank building built in 1910, this ever-curious duo has created a space somewhere between a contemporary design laboratory and a cabinet of curiosities.

“Theater of objects” says De Chirée about this interior design project.
The former fashion and lifestyle editor is quick to point out that the original decoration by Maison Jansen is from the 1950s and the delicately painted walls, also original to the flat, from circa 1910. The entire luxury apartment serves as a backdrop to Rapin’s ever-growing collection of objects and furniture.
The owners of this luxury apartment like to mix things up, bringing in new discoveries and setting the stage with older collections Rapin has had for years, like his eye-catching ceramics, but never drifting from the most amazing interior design ideas. Here, there are no rules, with everything from Fornasetti to a 17th-century Turkish chest, by way of lamps and other pieces from the 1940s.
