Heya! Today, I would like to “talk” about one of my favorite french architect and designer, François Champsaur. And more precisely about this beautiful apartment he has entirely refurbished in the Trocadero area, in Paris. I love the fact that he has such an artistic and precise eye, and that every furniture there is highly sculptural.  Also, noble materials were used such as bronze, glass, oak and marble to create a simple and modern but elegant apartment.

Heya! Aujourd'hui j'aimerais vous “parler” d'un de mes favoris architecte et designer français, François Champsaur. Et plus précisément d'un magnifique appartement qu'il a rénové à Paris, au Trocadéro. J'adore son regard artistique et sa précision du travail, et le fait que chaque meuble dans cet appartement est très sculptural. Aussi, des matériaux nobles tels que le bronze, le bois, le verre, le chêne massif et le marbre ont été utilisés pour réaliser un appartement moderne et simple mais surtout, élégant.

#1 on our list of 100 Big Ideas.

Firm: François Champsaur.

Site: Deauville, France.

Idea: A revamped Arqana, the 37,750-square-foot Deauville facility where France’s finest thoroughbred yearlings are offered at auction, presents the horses as an exclusive and luxurious product on display under dramatic lighting and black-painted ceilings. The facility also houses offices, meeting rooms, VIP lounges, and a 200-seat restaurant and bar featuring Norman Cherner chairs and custom tables (pictured). 


{Wanted to find more work by interior architect Francois Champsaur (seen here before). Found that he designed the Maison FL Hotel in Paris - while I’ve only seen a couple of projects by him, I am slowly familiarizing myself with his style.}

The design of the Maison FL takes notes from the building’s Art Deco heritage, resulting in a contemporary space. High ceilings and abundant light ensure the Maison FL is a comforting experience.

Maison FL is located off the River Seine and near the Jardins du Trocadéro in Paris, France.
