When I think of a typical Parisienne interior :- aged parquetry floors, crystal chandeliers, gilded mirrors and antique Louis furniture comes to mind. However, there is a very different side to Paris interiors. The apartments are still old and gracious but the furniture is clean lined and modern. The colour palette is bold and simple and the pieces are architectural. Designers like Christain Liagre are leading the way with their contemporary lines whilst still respecting the time honored traditions of quality furniture making. These interiors are all great examples of this new breed of furniture design.
