Once upon a time...
There was a young man who left his home and his family’s decorative arts studio in the south of France for Paris
After studying at the Atelier du Louvre and the École Camondo, Patrick Gilles had learned all he needed to know about the decorative arts; he went to work for the French designer Christian Liaigre,where he met Dorothee Boissier, a native Parisian from a family of art dealers. Gilles went on to become the head of Liaigre’s design studio, and Boissier went to the offices of another French designer, Philippe Starck, where she honed her skills as an interior architect. The dynamic couple started Gilles and Boissier in 2004 and began slaying the world with their designs of exotic restaurants around the world (Buddahkan in New York, Cha Cha Moon in London, and various Hakkasans, including the recently opened one in San Francisco). Eventually, they came to work on their own castle (a quintessential 19th-century Parisian flat); a series of tall, elegant, white spaces, where their backgrounds and experiences are merged seamlessly—we’d like to think forever.
I know we have all seen this beautiful Parisian apartment by Gilles et Boissier over and over...
but when I saw these images I fell in love all over again and again! I love the simple clean lines mixed with the details of the doors,
walls and the mirrors. The dark wood. The white sofa.The greige rug.
Everything it's so perfect! Love. Love. Love.
Have you all a lovely weekend!
