ONE OF THE MOST LUXURIOUS PENTHOUSES IN THE HEART OF PARIS
We sat down with Boca do Lobo Design team behind this modern project – Boca do Lobo Design Studio – to find out more of it entailed
In Paris, the city of lights and the home of iconic design is nestled a luxurious and eclectic 1450 square feet apartment, by Boca do Lobo Design Studio. An apartment fit for the most creative minds, this project is one of the many homes of a prolific architect, who also dabbles in the art dealing world. We sat down with the design team behind this modern project – Boca do Lobo Design Studio – to find out more of what it entailed. The client was looking for “a place where classic and contemporary come together” says the studio. A multimillion-dollar penthouse that reflects the owner’s love for collectable design and the client’s needs to have a functional space for work and to be inspired at the same time.
“The client’s first contact with the brand was in Paris, in our showroom”recall the Boca do Lobo representatives
To fulfil his professional needs, the client reached out to Boca do Lobo Design Studio, to create the perfect balanced home. “The client’s first contact with the brand was in Paris, in our showroom” recall the Boca do Lobo representatives, “where the pieces captivated his attention“. Lately, when he was sure the project was going to happen, “the client joined us in Portugal and went to our design studio, showroom and production”.
Exclusivity and quality were two of the most important requirements and Boca do Lobo‘s pieces fulfilled all the needs. “After one meeting we decided that the apartment should be artistic and luxurious, but also functional. A space to work, but also to leisure”, a place where even in the comfort of his home when brilliance strikes, no time is wasted in putting pen to paper.
As Boca do Lobo has always had a strong bond with the French capital, becoming the furniture brand’s centre stage for its most ambitious design to date, was an obvious choice. Boca do Lobo Design Studio was about to create one of the most luxurious apartments in the heart of Paris.
The team knew exactly where to start, “We knew that white was the key colour of the interior design project giving us the perfect starting point to work in different contemporary design concepts”. A neutral and clean background where everything fits perfectly in harmony. From gold surfaces that express luxury, to carefully hand-painted tiles, and the final touches of marble, every detail was carefully thought out. Embracing the elegant details of classic architecture, this apartment features white French wall mouldings, highlighting the classical style of the French windows.
Influenced by the city’s renaissance period, the art worthy designs and sculptures enhance the decor bringing to life the richness of the history of those before us.
“The apartment has an open space concept that combines all the rooms through one unique style, yet the functional needs and the high-tech amenities separate each area.”Boca do Lobo Design Studio
The one-bedroom luxury apartment was fully designed by the teaming collaboration with the architect and owner of the apartment. “The master bedroom, the tailored closet and the bespoke kitchen were the main challenges in this exclusive interior design project. The fully functional office was also one of the architect’s imperative requests.”
“As the client receives many different people in his home, from business meetings to socializing activities, the entrance is crucial”.Boca do Lobo Design Studio
In interior design, the entryway is the home’s greeting card and what welcomes those who visit it. Contrasting in the colours but converging in the aesthetic and boldness of the pieces, the Entry Gallery shows that details are everything.
Covering the entire entryway, on both sides, the iconic and exclusive Heritage Sideboard brings colour to an almost monochromatic environment. On the end of this large entrance is featured the modern Pietra round table, carved with mastery in white marble, the key element of this space matching the typical french floors.
In a wide and bright concept, the living room is one of the main areas in this apartment and the design team worked to build a space “surrounded by art and romantic sculptures that call back to Ancient Greece to combine classic and contemporary, in an artistic symbiosis”.
In the centre of the living room lays a new version of the iconic Imperfectio Sofa “this time in a chaise long. This design piece shows that a beautiful and artsy piece can both be aesthetically pleasing, and a comfortable place to rest”. Surrounded by the sofa, the magnificent centre table is a product of the Boca do Lobo’s Bespoke Service. This design became part of 2021 novelties debuts.
The aesthetic of the space is defined by the combination of its colours, shapes and materials. The cream tones in the textiles of the upholsteries, the gold of the brass and the earth tones of the marble bring the perfect balance and harmony to the room.
“Following the open-concept lines of the decor, the living room transitions into the dining room, maintaining the same characteristics and aesthetic”Boca do Lobo Design Studio
Every piece is unique, exclusive coexisting as a masterpiece both individually and together. The different finishes are one of the features that contribute to the coherence of this interior design project, with statement pieces and timeless hues. In the dining room, the designers mixed neutral tones, with black and dark brown wood surfaces contrasting with the exquisiteness of gold brass. “But what truly elevates this ambience are the pieces that make this project a living art-gallery” explains the team, comprehensive furniture that could easily be considered an iconic collectable design piece “such as the imposing Empire Dining Table” taking centre stage with the Glance mirror and the Nº11 Chair complementing this beautiful and perfectly designed area.
Transitioning into the kitchen area, this project debuts new pieces but also new spaces where Boca do Lobo can be present.
“Everything in this apartment is unconventional sharing the space with the dining room, the kitchen is open and perfectly embraces the aesthetic of the apartment”Boca do Lobo Design Team
The main piece is the dark marble Kitchen Island, another incredible bespoke product of Boca do Lobo, with the perfect amount of gold touch and the minimalistic design, to match the dining and living room. This bespoke piece was designed to break the space and to gather all the ambiences at the same time. Mixing dark tones and illuminated by the gold present in the whole project, this area is not only functional but also luxurious.
The Designer’s Team referred that “The Master Bedroom was mainly inspired by the art pieces that the client brings from all the corners of the world, like the vintage black mirror and the rug”, but the centre stage it’s the king-size bed. The bed is framed with the handmade Lapiaz Headboard, from Boca do Lobo 2020 Collection. This imposing design piece is inspired by the french word for ‘stone’ that when frizzed, cracks into an unexpected stunning interior revealing all the inside details.
Alongside the rest area, the team conceived a space to rest with two armchairs and the beautiful D. Dinis Fragmented Mirror maximizing the space even more. Now joining Imperfectio family, of the Brand, is a product design for the owner’s best friend, the Imperfectio Pet Bed. “A special require from the client that we accepted a challenge to enter into the pet luxury products”. A comfortable pet-essential piece, particularly resistant to water and scratches.
The master wardrobe design has a central lounge area with two statement armchairs, covered in brass, giving the space an authentic and luxury style.
“Glass doors show the Designer clothes collection and give the closet a feeling of bright and open space.”Boca do Lobo Design Studio
Fulfilling this elegant room, the neutral and patterned rug from the brand Rug Society, a partner in this project, works well in the interior design geometry and helps to bring warmth into the luxury closet needs.
The time everyone spends in the bathroom is precious. This concept was the owner’s moto to build an entire efficient bathroom that looks like a private spa. With a green wall to set the mood and a bespoke bathtub by Boca do Lobo, with artistic handmade tiles, this space was perfectly designed to inspire and calm the mind. Not forgetting the sauna area that warms the space covered in luxury marble walls and floor.
The reflection of personal style, passions, and aspirations of the private client is the motto for this working space. Leading into the creative room, the hallway maintains the same art gallery-like aesthetic as the entrance of the house “yet breaking the informality of it with the stunning and imposing Millionaire luxury safes with the strong and formal design”, adds Boca do Lobo Design Studio. The Hera Suspension Lamp illuminates the entry of this room, and the marble floor reflects the brightness needed to balance this business yet inspiring environment.
Entering the room where work comes to life, the Design Studio created two distinctive areas according to the necessities of the client. Lounge space with an eclectic style to welcome the guests into a creative talk with the Soleil Sofa and Armchair and the out-of-box Savana Rug by the Partner Brand Rug Society.
“Since this penthouse is the home of an architect, the Designers conceived this area as the main working place”Boca do Lobo Design Studio
The new Garrett Bookcase covers the side walls to provide the maximum storage keeping knowledge on display and bring into this space more character and formality. The centre stage of the office is the Empire Desk. This imposing surface is a one-of-a-kind design aesthetic and refined statement that it’s illuminated by the French windows conceiving a perfect place to work.
