{obsessed} Interior Designer Vincent Darré

The designer Vincent Darré against a wall dressed in linen fabric by Josef Frank {Svenskt Tenn}.

Vincent Darré - a name I can't believe I didn't know.  After randomly catching just the last picture in this series {the gold seahorse drawer and pink tufted - I love a good "tuft" - wall piece} and deciding that it had definitely been inception-ed from my dreams, I came across this greatness.  It's the Parisian {of course} mansion apartment of Nerina Rossini.  I know nothing about this woman other than she "keeps this place for visits" as her main residence is Greece.  Well, I also know that she's kind of a genius for giving the Salvador Dali/David Lynch of design full reign over the decorative aspects of her interiors.  Please, if you will, take a moment to feast your eyes on this surrealist...masterpiece. 

 In the guest room, the sofa-bed was custom made by  Vincent Darré  and covered with a linen fabric by Josef Frank {Svenst Tenn}.  Sculpture is mottled brass, wall photos by Spyros Vasilas.

In the double living room, an ottoman covered in velvet {Prada} serves as a coffee table. Above, an Olympia Le-Tan Minaudier, mottled bottles and lacquer trays {both Maison Darré}. A small chair of 1920s Chinese chine is framed by two columns - A 'Crayfish Drawer and Métamorph'Os - wooden wallpaper {both Maison Darré}.

 Detail around applique -apply yourself on an aluminum and bronze wallpaper background -Metamorph'os {all Maison Darré}

  A 1940s bench made ​​the perfect place for Vincent Darré's cushions collection - Ossobuco {Maison Darré}. Also a 1970s chine carpet, and coffee table - Basin - cast aluminum and glass {Maison Darre} upon which had been placed an antique Pucci vase, and a 1950s silver crab {Buccellati}. On the wall is an aluminum mirror - Wall made {Maison Darré}.

 A console - Stilt {Maison Darré} and  mottled wall sconces.

The sofas were dressed in green velvet cushions and Abecedos {Maison Darré} In the background, a bookshelf - Fish {Maison Darré}

 In the living room - a sofa and antique mirrors.

The bed, designed by Vincent Darre, is topped in fabric of Emergence by Pierre Le-Tan, and framed by night tables -Frogs {Maison Darré}. Two modern chandeliers surround a nineteenth century Murano family chandelier.

 Under the stairs leading to bedrooms, two lamps are fashioned with the wallpaper -  Métamorph'Os {Maison Darré}; sofa Crocodile (Maison Darre).

 In one corner, a vintage armchair and curtains made ​​with fabric Emergence of Pierre Le-Tan {Maison Darré}

Elie Top for Lanvin jewelry as well as a Murano vase sit atop the {in my opinion} Pièce de résistance - a sculpted {by hand out of poplar} gold leaf seahorse dressing table. I die. Oh...and the photograph is by Craig McDean

Many of the items seen in this story come from Maison Darré, Vincent's own line {in particular, the aptly named A' L'eau Dali collection}, as well as Svenskt Tenn {esp. the Josef Frank line}, an interior design shop located on Strandvägen in Stockholm, Sweden.
