The boundary between works of art and design is often becoming less and less visible. Both are the results of the creative process, they are also united by the typology of the client to whom they are addressed, at least this is the case with key furniture brands.
Trendy apartment with notes of glamour and works of art in Paris
This interesting apartment in Paris is an example of how works of art can become not details, but full-fledged characters of the interior. There are no comfortable solutions or large storage systems, the design is not for convenience, but rather for beauty. Which is ideal for those who work a lot or rarely come to the city.
Sculptures, paintings, mini-installations seem to occupy all walls and horizontal surfaces of the apartment, which reminds a private gallery. However, there is a kitchen, a bedroom with a comfortable bed and a bathroom where you can relax as well as in the spa. Very unconventional for living spaces, but here style and design conquer comfort!
Apartments in São Paulo of 600 m²
The design bureau Fernanda Marques Arquitetos Associados presented a stunning art collector’s apartments in the upscale Sao Paulo district of Brazil. The two-level residence is 600 square meters in area and even has its own swimming pool.
The owners asked the architects to create enough space to properly showcase their growing art collection and pool. Both requests, although very different in nature, represent a desire to surround themselves with visual stimuli, so the pool was designed not only for swimming but also for admiration. So this unique residence, called “Panorama”, found itself with a pool right in the middle of the living room.
Project 910 in Sao Paulo, Brazil
This modern interior design is the work of the Kiko Salomão Arquitetura studio. This project was completed in 2012 in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
The main idea of the designers’ development was to focus on a magnificent collection of works of art in the apartment. In each room, these exclusive pieces are the focus of attention through the use of a modest range of furniture colors in the interior.
Apartments in a palazzo for a family of collectors
Italian architect Luigi Fragola created a dynamic interior in the historic Florentine Palazzo, where works of modern art are full participants in the space.
Customers, passionate art lovers, wanted to exhibit all their art objects in their home. The main wish was also to create an energetic and dynamic atmosphere that would match the lifestyle of a young couple with four children.
In the entrance hall, the round central table makes you go around and stop to admire the works hung on the walls or simply placed on the floor. It’s about sketches and sketches by artists of the 20th century, including a couple of drawings by the Colombian artist Fernando Botero.
British-style luxe by Sally Mackereth
Author’s furniture, thoughtful details, and careful choice of colors, as well as a huge number of works of modern art – these are exclusive apartments of The Mellier, created by designer Sally Mackereth.
The designer’s studio is located in the former stables between King Cross Station and Camden Town, next to one of her projects, The Mellier Residence in London’s Mayfair district. Here, Sally designed five apartments and a penthouse overlooking the rooftops of London. The building was built in 1905 and for a long time, it housed a luxury car showroom. At various times visitors to the place included Lady Patricia Ramsay, Queen Victoria’s granddaughter, Edward, Prince of Wales, Princess Marina, and other members of the royal family.
