    Default A grand apartment in Paris is renewed

    Pierre Yovanovitch reimagined his Paris apartment—in shambles the first time he saw it—reconfiguring rooms and unifying the interior elements.

    Yovanovitch removed the fireplace that had divided the music room and living room. A new, see-through fireplace connects them. “The ebony structure also gives it the necessary height and verticality,” he points out. Yonel Lebovici chairs are placed near the Ado Chale low table.

    He carved the master bedroom and bath out of the old kitchen and dining room. “The extensive use of palisander helps with a warm atmosphere,” says Yovanovitch. A pair of 19th-century stools flank the door to the bath.

    It is nice now, but he took too much..he took the 'soul' of it away IMO.

    It was not renewed or restored, it was 'replaced'.

    It's all horrible. Worst piece is the ceiling lamp (flip - flops?????) in the library.

    It could have been a beautiful place not an homage to tacky

    Totally agree! He could have done a better modern update, while keeping the traditional and old world look to it.

    ^^I'm with you, Effie. Let's stare.

    He was a fashion designer turned interior designer. He's supposed to be an international rage. His work is usually very traditional. There's something bizarre about that apartment. And what's with all the circles and balls?

    They took the cachet away from that place.
