Designed at the start of the 19th century by Charles Percier and Pierre Fontaine, leading architects of the day, the four-story buildings were completed in the mid-1830s. Today, the apartments within offer some of the most spectacular views anywhere in the heart of Paris, overlooking the iconic sweep from the Place de la Concorde to the Louvre, and Jean Louis-Deniot decided to completely redesign this entire luxury home and to give it a “fresher” look.

His rethink of the 2,000-square-foot apartment is a study in swaggering refinement, a deft mixing of the classical with the contemporary design beginning in the entrance hall.

“Expand the space and create a sense of drama” Jean Louis-Deniot says about the high ceilings and walls in Carrara marble.

The use of marble is a very signature style and accent in the French era and that is why the top designer decided to introduce this element to this glorious interior design project. In this room division, there is no natural lighting and that is why the use of a darker flooring and light ceilings and walls make the entryway look bigger.

Deniot moved a Maison Jansen bookcase from the dining room to the library and then repeated its metallic detailing in the wainscoting and added tweed wall upholstery.A gold-trimmed alcove was designed as a petite gallery for a figurative sculpture by Philippe Valentin.

That philosophy also defined Deniot’s approach to the living room. After creating a traditional backdrop with gray-painted 18th-century boiserie, he outfitted the space almost entirely with midcentury and modern design furnishings, including pieces of his own design like a clover-shaped cocktail table and a curvy, Vladimir Kagan–Esque sofa covered in a subtly flecked Raf Simons bouclé that Jean Louis-Deniot likens to haute couture.
