flea market paris

“As Emma takes me on a tour of her house, the extraordinary depth and breadth to her talents become obvious. Every room is framed around a beautiful artifact—a piece of furniture or fabric picked up at a flea market in Paris or Los Angeles—and her artworks show that she can both paint and draw exquisitely. One picture stands out: It is a self-portrait of Emma holding a camera. The lens is aimed menacingly at the viewer, like the barrel of a gun, a neat illustration of what we had just experienced at the Tate.” -Amanda Foreman, Vogue

Sultry Parisian Loft by Studio KO.

Studio Ko’s latest project, a bright loft with breathtaking 360° views of Parisian rooftops and monuments, emanates sophistication. The inspiration for the design stems from both a modern Parisian lifestyle and an air of the ever chic LA Chateau Marmot. Imagined for a well traveled single businessman, the space’s concrete features and dark sultry palette bring masculinity while shiny surfaces and rich velvets add a dimension of luxe. A combination of furniture sourced from Paris flea market Puces de Saint Ouen and custom designed pieces bring character to the space.
