Design Inspiration | A Stunning Paris Apartment by Jean-Louis Deniot

Design & Décor

Recently, I was talking about Jean-Louis Deniot with a fellow designer while flipping through his book, JeanLouis Deniot: Interiors.  One of things I appreciate most about his interiors is that they’re tailored to each client and the architecture of the home.  Deniot is considered the master of French interiors and is one of the leading interior designers on the design scene today.  The Paris-based designer is known for his interiors that brilliantly combine history with contemporary flourishes, mixing patterns, textures and pieces from different periods with masterful elegance, and a thoughtful attention to detail.  Deniot has worked on projects across the globe and has established a large international following since he started his firm in 2000.

A painting by Mathieu Mercier hangs above the Jean de Merry console, the Tommi Parzinger floor lamps are from 1stdibs, and the pendant lights by Ombre Portée.


In the living room of this Paris apartment, the sofa is by Collection Pierre and upholstered in Brochier fabric; lamps by Paul Evans flank the glass wall sculpture by Christophe Gaignon.


19th century Italian mirror and side tables are Jean-Louis Deniot for Jean de Merry.  I love how the plaster ceiling mimics the design on the custom rug by Diurne.


The dining table and chairs are custom, light fixtures are by Hervé Van der Straeten, Osborne and Little wallpaper, and the flooring is a mix of carrara and Nero Marquina carrara.


This kitchen!  Pendants by Circa Lighting hang above the granite-topped kitchen island, cabinetry is custom made, the range is by De Dietrich, and the flooring is a mix of quartzite and granite.  More unique patters customized by Deniot.


In the breakfast room, the chairs and a banquette are covered in a Lelievre fabric, the table is from Villiers, the pendant fixtures are by Corbett Lighting, and the sconces by Vaughan.  The walls were painted by Florence Girette.  Ah-mazing.


Another favorite room, the ceiling fixture is by Mathieu Lustrerie, floor lamps are Maison Charles, custom made console, and the walls are faux marble.


A Jacob Delafon tub with fittings by Waterworks, the sconces are by Niermann Weeks, and the Veere Grenney chair is covered in an Armani/Casa fabric; the chandelier is by Tony Duquette and the vanity, mirror, and marble flooring are all custom designs.


What is your favorite room in this apartment?
