JEAN-LOUIS DENIOT and his superb sense of elegance
Jean Louis Deniot is always an inspiring source of interior design ideas. The work of this maximalist French interior designer is quite easy to spot: luxurious, classically-inspired modern rooms made for life in the 21st-century, where strong silhouettes and bold statements are juxtaposed within a soothing envelope of gray and gold mineral tones, stone, ivory, and parchment.
Featured on the ELLE Decor and AD 100 lists for the best interior designers in the world, Deniot has long been in the business of creating atmospheres. His décors are his playground, spaces where spontaneity and magic are de rigueur. Recognized worldwide for his eclectic and emblematic interiors, Jean-Louis plays in a multiplicity of repertoires, never sticking to a purity of style and letting his academic training translate into a vocabulary that is both informal and bold. When he does engage in contemporary pieces, it is always with a weighty dose of history and references infused into it to produce a timeless yet timely scenario.
For a glamorous flat in London, the much-celebrated Jean-Louis Deniot punctuated coolly elegant rooms with the warmth of burnished gold against alternating limestone and gray walls in rooms filled with French furniture.
