This flawless Parisian apartment is a masterclass in effortless chic

Joseph Dirand’s design vision is immaculate. A master at making everything striking but nothing overwhelming, his latest project, an apartment in a Haussmann-era building located on Paris’ Avenue Montaigne (a prestigious street that runs off the bottom of the Champs-Élysées), where he was given creative carte blanche, is nothing less than our dream apartment. Littered with amazing art, a task that Dirand was also charged with curating, every aspect of the project is flawless and not an ounce short on material detail.

Featuring all the original Parisian touches including the perfectly restored mouldings, parquet floors and lofty double doors, the owner describes the apartment as “a setting for a modern queen,” according to Dirand’s interview in The New York Times’ T Magazine.

The kitchen features Knoll’s Platner chairs which are available locally from Studio Italia
