Close to the Canal Saint-Martin in Paris, this family apartment of 200 m2 in artist's studio is an invitation to travel. The owner, Stéphanie de Saint Simon, the creator of Ouma Productions, manufacturer of furniture and objects in India, echoes her passion for this country, with embroidered fabrics, colors and ethnic objects, memories gathered from an indefatigable globetrotter. Discovery signed Côté Paris.

Two hundred square meters are barely enough to accommodate this traveler's mixed-race inventory. His meeting with India a few years ago will kick off his brand of furniture and accessories Ouma Productions. Since then, it has made this country, its second home port but also a territory of privileged inspiration, source of projects and new horizons, like the restaurant MG Road opened last June. His Parisian apartment, conceived as a nomadic stopover, juxtaposes the finds and the thunderbolts, in a staging with controlled wealth.

In the master bedroom, in front of the bed dressed in an old kantha blanket and cushions, Lindell & Co, stools, Ouma Productions, one of which is embroidered by Laure Guilhot, and library, The Conran Shop.

Close to the Canal Saint-Martin, the open space and free of this workshop overlooking the courtyard will be a boon to put in perspective its treasures. "We had to avoid falling into a folk chaos The temptation is great to be overwhelmed by what we love Too baroque, too heterogeneous, the space can quickly be saturated So I organized, create families of objects, assemblies of colors I channeled the bidding by multiplying nooks and crannies, "says the designer. With the complicity of the architect Jean-Philippe Gauvin, they extend the references of an elsewhere, use materials such as Zelliges de Fès in the bathroom, create separation doors in the living room equipped with screen-printed glass panels, inspired by the moucharabiehs, shelter the beds in alcoves, play on strong colors and finally install a sheltered terrace under the eaves.

In the small living room sofa, Ikea, covered with fabrics, BEMZ, cushions, Lindell & Co, carpet bought in Fez, beanbag in Berber cloth. Basically, Hong Kong photo of Patrick Messina and Mumbai by Samuel Zuder.

An artist's apartment with the spirit of elsewhere ...

"Rethinking the folklore of Indian and Nepali handicrafts, westernizing the everyday furniture of these countries, by reworking their lines in a more contemporary, more comfortable way, in order to tame them in our interiors", such was the challenge of the creations from Ouma Productions. Model flagship, the charpoy - famous street rest bed - it offers in multiple versions. Varied his ropes and his feet, he revisits the traditional version of the sofa and the bed and quickly becomes an essential piece of holiday homes of the Anglo-Saxons. The Indian bazaar with its canteens, suitcases, mattresses and cushions will enrich the collection.

In the big living room charpoy, cushions and bench, Ouma Productions, in the background a painting by Agnes Thurnauer.

From the bazaar to the restaurant, Indian "experiences"

Last creation, a bistronomic Indian restaurant, pioneer of its kind in France. Coming from London, Chef Manoj Sharma concocts an author's cuisine, shorter cooking, crispness and mixed origins reinterpret the classics of the genre. The atmosphere is inspired by cafes held by Persian immigrants of the late nineteenth century in Bombay. These cafes called "Irani" have quickly become mythical for their traditional cuisine and their decor of mirrors and sepia images, in an Art Deco atmosphere.Enjoying the 1940 style of places invested by MG Road, Stephanie plants the atmosphere and invites us to live an Indian experience.

In the children's bathroom, collection of mirrors, Ouma Productions, stools and pots in stainless steel from Indian bazaars. Zelliges Credenza of Fez.
