This apartment will make you want to live in Paris


Warning: These images will make you wish you lived in Paris.  Don’t say we didn’t warn you!

Paris-based interior designer Gerard Faivre designed this luxury apartment located in a Haussmannian building built in 1860. The  270 m2 apartment occupies the entire fourth floor of the building and enjoys a views of the American Cathedral and of the luxury residence of the great couturier Léonard.


Gérard Faivre continually declares that for him, Paris is an inexhaustible source of inspiration. With its rich history, culture and art de vivre, the most beautiful capital in the world gives him the opportunity to present, in each of his projects, his unique concept of “luxurious ready to live-in apartments” available for purchase with a built-in concierge service.


The Pierre I de Serbie apartment is located in Paris’s Golden Triangle, the most exclusive area of the city. This zone enjoys international recognition because of its beautiful avenues, such as Avenue George V, Avenue Montaigne, Avenue Pierre 1er de Serbie, and Avenue des champs Elysée and for the stunning mansions, palaces and haute couture and luxury boutiques.


In the luxury Paris apartment, Gérard Faivre combines the authentic with the contemporary. He provides to his international clients, who are used to staying in chic hotels, the luxury that they look for when they come to Paris as well as the French spirit and good taste so often desired.


To preserve the original essence of this apartment, Gérard Faivre asked artists to restore all of its moldings, using gold and silver foil, thereby reinvigorating the space. Also, he asked them to restore the old ‘Point de Hongrie’ wood parquet flooring and the authentic marble fireplaces.


The contemporary feel of this property comes from Gérard Faivre’s constant quest for perfection that is expressed in this interior design project through his partnering with renowned international designers and design brands.
