Modern And Classic Design in a 19th-Century Paris Apartment

Located in the 6th arrondissement in Paris lies this beautiful Haussmannian apartment of interior architect Jean-Charles Tomas. Jean-Charles renovated the apartment and removed many walls to create large and light open-plan spaces. He wanted to salvage the original wooden floor, though some parts were so damaged that they had to be replaced.

But now you’ll see a stunning herringbone floor, which is so typical for French homes, thoughout the apartment. The home is filled with design pieces, from Jean Prové chairs to an Eero Saarinen table and Jeanneret chairs. This home is a beautiful mixture of classic French architecture and modern and mid-century design pieces.
