Paris is Always a Good Idea


From Audrey Hepburn Words ‘’Paris is always a good idea.”  And especially now that we are a little bit obsessed with that Paris Je ne sais quoi after Maison & Objet.

So from all that passion and inspiration Somewhere in Clichy - in the 9th arrondissement of Paris - there is a stunning place that was the subject of a home makeover by interior design studio 10surdix almost taken from a movie. This French team created an inspiring modern home filled with industrial accents and a mid-century sideboard that you won't ever forget.

In the center of this French movie there is an English star, as big as James Bond itself – Monocles Side Board

This movie-inspired sideboard makes all the difference in the room. With dark walnut and gold plated brass finishes, this mid-century piece can light up a room all by itself. The monocles circles are engraved to the back and side of the unit, giving it an extreme character and high end look. It is a perfect furniture piece for retro lovers or mid-century admirers, giving the knurling knobs on the drawers or the tapered legs.

This Remodel Home, was entirely made by the French trio, the open plan living is very characteristic of industrial interiors. The more modern and slightly bohemian look was achieved Not only by Essential Home's Monocles sideboard but also by DelightFull’s minimalist Clark chandelier.

Deciding to use an oversized mirror simply placed against the wall they made a way to convey a relaxed vibe in such a wide space as this living room. The concrete wall behind the television was given a special touch with the hand painted flowers on the top.

The canopy between the master bedroom and the corridor was done especially for this sole purpose in the studios' workshops near Paris. The wall fixtures are also bespoke pieces by the mid-century lighting brand DelightFull Brubeck wall sconces.
