Appartement de Maxime Clair

Stephen Coles

I’ve been following Maxime Clair’s Flickr stream for several weeks as gorgeous pieces of European design flow by. Today came shots of his apartment interior. It’s a well-considered mix of homey warmth and crisp modernism. The kind of home I want mine to be. And he’s been so kind as to identify the pieces in each room. Pictured here (names in French):

  • Chair on left: Fauteuil Diamant, Harry Bertoia, Knoll, 1952
  • Eames Segmented table et DSX chairs
  • Chair in rear on left: Chaise Anthony, Jean Prouvé, Atelier Jean Prouvé, 1948 – Vitra, 2000
  • Black pendant: ferruccio laviani, FL/Y Lamp
  • Table lamp: Lampe Nesso, Gruppo Architetti Urbanista Citta Nuova, Artemide, 1965
  • Sculpture on mantle: Bougeoirs Nagel, Allemagne, Circa 1970

    Oh my gosh, it’s all so perfect. The colorful furniture, the hide rug, the gridded bookshelf, the fun photo hanging over the fireplace… and look at the wood parquet floors! Fantastic!

    I love the black FL/Y pendant. I have only seen opaque ones before.

    I love the way pendant lamps look in front of floor-to-ceiling bookshelves. Can someone remind me of the name of the table/shelf lamp — orange, on the bookshelf?

    The coffee table is very cool with the art on top. I want it.
