The mix & match: instructions for use
If the trend is mixing in the interior decor, marrying styles is not always obvious. Here are four successful examples to inspire without moderation.
From a pop art style to a decor inspired by the Orient through designer furniture, interiors mix styles for a successful rendering. Côté Maison invites you to discover more about these daring marriages ... that work!
1. A style "wise fifties" and "crazy seventies" for a colorful deco
In London, at the founders of the concept store Les Trois Garçons. In the small living room, a collection of 1950 ceramics created by Constance Spry for Fulham Pottery sits on a transparent console. Two "1-2-3" purple chairs, Verner Panton (Fritz Hansen, 1973), take the color of the wall, unifying the whole. Canvas by Matthew Stradling.
2. Influences from Asia and cult designers for a refined decor
In Paris, at Muriel Réus, founder of the consulting agency A2. Under the moldings, we find the duo Garouste and Bonetti (sofa and pedestal), Ettore Sottsass (floor lamp "Callimaco") or Alvar Aalto (glass vase). But this great traveler does not forget her passion for Asia. The jar is a Chinese antique nineteenth and capiz ceiling lamp (mother of pearl) comes from the Philippines.
3. A decor that mixes Napoleon III style with Scandinavian design
In Nantes, at the stylist Annabel Guéret. On the living side, around the tufted velvet sofa with fringes, a teak rocking chair "IW3" by Illum Wikkelsø (Eilersen, 1958) and a rattan sun chair. On the right, footrest "Oyster" by Pierre Paulin (Artifort, 1960). "Honoré" white armchair, "Vertigo" suspension (Petite Friture).
4. A deco with beautiful signatures and large distrib '
In Villers-Allerand (51), Dolores Sageste transformed its attic into a loft for rent. The piece of choice of the decor? Six "Groovy" armchairs in orange pop dress signed Pierre Paulin (Artifort, 1973). Buffet 1940 aside, the decoration, with the suspension "Maskros" (Ikea PS) and shelves "Lack" (Ikea), is low profile side price.
