Pierre Yovanovitch at home

One of the best things that happened to me when visiting the opening night preview gala for The Spring Show last week was to walk out with a free copy of Modern magazine. Seriously. Not because of a free magazine but because I came across Pierre Yovanovitch and his 2,150-square-foot house located on the top floor of The Hotel Particulier in Paris, yes in one of Paris' Landmarks. The breath taking images encouraged me to search about him and wow what a discovery (for me only though) It seems everybody else knew about him. He's been named by Architectural Digest as one France's most exiting young interior design talents, now that's a label many (including myself) would run a one month long marathon for, if you ask me. Why is it that great things sometimes just happen by accident? It turns out that after Pierre designed clothes for Pierre Cardin his friends asked him for help to decorate their homes and now he has such an overwhelming amount of work, enough to share with a few and some more. It sounds like Miles Redd's story, right?
Pierre's style is what Modern magazine called sophisticated modernist and I couldn't agree more. About his home he says "This is my interpretation of rustique chic"

Notice the genius use of a Harry Bertoia chair as art/sculpture. A mid-century daybed by James Mont and a wood and cork table by Paul Frankl used in the living room.

How clever. Pierre opted for a more bohemian approach for his dining area while still using mostly mid-century furniture. When friends come over, the sofas (left, 1930s Axel Einar Hjorth and Otto Schult, right) are pulled up to the Jules Wabbes' table.

Below, more eye candy from his work.
