Artful Paris Apartment

Tino Zervudachi's Artful Paris Apartment

In the entrance hall of Zervudachi’s Paris apartment, a stone staircase created by his partner, a French architect, leads to the annexed second floor. The table and suite of Jacob-style chairs are all 19th century, while the Italian ceiling lantern and the two bronze fawns are 18th century. The large artwork is by Anselm Kiefer; the floor is paved with Turkish stone. 

The living room is decorated with doors painted in a faux-tortoise pattern, Cognac-color silk curtains with brown velvet trim, and a pair of 1940s Jansen armchairs; between the windows, a sculpture by Luiza Miller stands in front of a gouache by Joseph Beuys. 

An 18th-century Cuban mahogany table by Canabas anchors the study; the photographs flanking the fireplace are by Michael Light. 

Nineteenth-century cupboard doors separate the study and the master bedroom, where an Egyptian Revival mirror is positioned over the button-tufted suede headboard.
