Almost no one is a stranger to the names that invoke French fashion design. Chanel, Dior, among others have become iconic in the world of luxury, but that high class elegance does not stop with their clothes. A look into the headquarters and studios of some of the most famous French fashion houses shows just how interior-design savvy these brands really are.
Photographed above is a custom rug at the Chanel HQ in Paris. The interlocked double C's of the brand are unmistakable in this image. Having peeked into the studios of showrooms of some of France's finest producers of beautiful clothing, we couldn't help but share some images of their decor that reminded us of our own pieces we have in our gallery.
Jewelry designer Delfina Delletrez's home studio is stylishly decorated. Using a pair of smaller pieces breaks the common practice of using a single, larger piece as a wall decor, such as a painting or mirror. It provides more decorating options, and gives the room a more formal look when done right.
This fabulous pair of Italian sconces are perfect for getting that formal, but airy look. The hand-blown glass and brass details give them an effortless elegance. They'll provide some ambient lightning at night, and simply look great during the day.
Consider this pair for a similar look. Three hand-blown glass leaves mounted on a brass base give these pieces a structured, yet ornate look.
Jazz up corners with a pop of color like this bright yellow chair in Isabel Marant's showroom. A well placed contemporary piece is a simple way to fill up space and brighten up a room.
