French interior design duo Humbert & Poyet have transformed the interiors of a two-bedroom apartment overlooking the Eiffel Tower. The quintessentially Paris home showcases the designers’ passion for colour and texture and how they interact to enhance everyday life.

De Sede DS-600 Sofa

Pierre Jeanneret Fireside Chair

The hero piece of the living space is the De Sede ‘DS-600’ sofa in tan leather, which coincides with Pierre Jeanneret Fireside chairs, an Emmanuelle Simon ‘Raku Yaki’ coffee table, a resin side table by Galerie Jag and custom wall sconces by Humbert & Poyet. The space also features a bespoke fireplace in bronze and marble, and built-in shelves in bronze, marble and rattan.

Oscar Niemeyer Retrofuturism Lounge Chair

Parquetry flooring offers a nod to traditional Parisian architecture. Pictured is a vintage Oscar Niemeyer chair, a pair of brass and glass side tables by Gallery Glustin, and a 1960 brass floor lamp from Galerie Glustin.

The project captures the spirit of Paris not only through its exceptional south-facing views overlooking the Eiffel Tower, Jardin de Tuileries and Musée d’Orsay but also through its classical-style architecture and sophisticated furniture collection, which features a number of eminent designers and brands.

Architecturally, the home retains its traditional Parisian character, however, with contemporary enhancements; archways are adorned in Grigio Carnico marble, parquetry floors meet patterned marble floors, and ceiling cornices have been reinterpreted in a playful way.

The dining space features a custom table by Humbert & Poyet, Galloti & Radice chairs, a custom wall sconce by Humbert & Poyet, and a vintage Angelo Leli chandelier. Built-in wine cellars in bronze and glass complete the space.

BassamFellows CB-23 Tractor Bar Stool in Walnut

The kitchen, now considered the heart of the home, features a monolithic, angular-shaped island bench made of striking Alpine Green marble. Also pictured is a set of BassamFellows Tractor stools and custom lighting pieces by Humbert & Poyet.

Archways have been reinterpreted through a modern lens with Grigio Carnico marble.

Humbert & Poyet have also reimagined the layout to accommodate a lifestyle centred around entertainment, emphasising the flow of the living spaces. Notably, the original kitchen was placed at the back of the apartment, and by connecting it to the rest of the spaces, Humbert & Poyet have transformed it into the heart of the home.

The material palette features a rich blend of colours and textures, including a diverse range of woods, marbles and metallic elements, amounting to spaces that, in the designers’ words, “enrich the soul”. These chosen materials coincide with equally striking furniture pieces sourced from all around the world, including vintage, new and custom, and sculptures and paintings from the owner’s extensive collection.

The entryway sets the tone for the refined apartment: patterned marble floors, a plaster lamp by Pierre Augustin Rose, a sculptural bench by Kolkhoz and an artwork by Yann Masseyeff.
