Hands up if you wouldn't mind a small pied à terre in Paris. Yeah, we're right there with you. We certainly wouldn't turn down an opportunity to set-up a little nest over there in the land of romance and fromage....especially if it was filled to the brim with gorgeous, vintage furniture. If you're lucky enough to be Frédéric Méchiche then your hand didn't make it that high 'cause you've already found la chance.
We like the concept behind this dream of a small apartment, but we love the execution.
Monsieur Méchiche has held fast to his admiration for the Bauhaus mentality by making sure that everything in this small space is simple, modern and functional.
Though he relies heavily on black, metal and glass, Méchiche keeps the space from falling too far on the side of heavy masculinity or industrial chic by warming up the decor with wood and organic accents.
