Jean-Louis Deniot made Antique and Modern meet in this projectWednesday 13 November 2019
Whenever someone mentions the name of Jean-Louis Deniot, we tend to associate him with an incredible legacy when it comes to French interior designers. Aside from being the man responsible for some of the most amazing settings the world has ever seen, he’s also in high regards due to his unique eclectic and traditional style that differs in every type of project. CovetED will be showing you one of the latest projects he completed during the present year.
Despite the fact that people tend to associate a type of style with Jean-Louis Deniot, in this recent project he had the chance to try out something a little different. For starters, he took on a home located in a busy boulevard instead of a residence in an upscale neighbourhood. The home is also blessed with some uniquely preserved classical details, most notably its 18 windows, a balcony that wraps itself around three sides of the apartment, and a whole series of classical elements still present despite the passage of time.
Jean-Louis Deniot then took it upon himself to maintain the typical Parisian elements of the home, however, regarding the owner’s personality and the home’s display, he felt that it needed a “hipper and more contemporary” type of style. The fact that the customer is a fan of Adolf Loos was also a big help in the focus that the interior designer took in the following steps.
For the furniture picks in this project, Jean-Louis Deniot opted to go for a more laid back type of interior design. Even in the accessories, as a request from the client, the French designer invested in several classical portraits from the Paris flea market instead of a collection of expensive paintings. However, the dining room and master bedroom are the definitive highlights of this project. These are the two main rooms in which you can definitely feel the essence of the original home flowing in the present time.
Often being regarded and acclaimed for his eclectic and emblematic interiors, Jean-Louis Deniot is a man used to play in several styles and spaces. Despite being inserted in a category when it comes to style, in truth, he considers a project to be his personal design playground. Alike many quality French designers, whenever he takes on a contemporary project Deniot makes sure to add in a mix of historic and classical decor references with the goal of producing more than a luxury scenario, a timeless one.
