An interview with Parisian architect and designer Jean-Louis Deniot.
"I aim for my interiors to be eclectic as well as serene." -Jean-Louis Deniot
"My style is full of history and references coming from many different periods. I like emblematic interiors full of archetypical furniture which one could consider 'New or Cool Classical'. The decors are never literal or featuring typical period rooms, but eclectic and very architectural, with mixed influences, and always focusing on the highest level of quality possible. I don't do pure contemporary as to me, it has no soul. I need to have history in my work."
Any one who is a fan of Jean-Louis Deniot's work (and that is a LOT of you) admires the refined taste, elegant materials, balance and exactitude that go into his projects. He is a meticulous student of his trade, blending just the right mix of styles, textures, history and color with sophisticated precision and originality. Projects include historic houses, residences, private apartments, countryside houses and – guess what – we will have the opportunity to see some of these projects in his upcoming book. Until then, how about an interview with the delightful Jean-Louis Deniot where we discuss the future, tour his home, explore his design philosophy, find out what inspires him and how he would advise interior designers.282
