Few things inspire an interior designer like a trip abroad. My trip to France a few weeks ago was an eye-opening experience (as always) that really enhanced my appreciation for French-inspired design and French designers. Have you heard of the amazing Jean-Louis Deniot?
“I aim for my interiors to be eclectic chic as well as serene.”
Jean-Louis Deniot’s career began just 12 years ago. After launching his own firm in Paris in 2000, he expanded his design business just two years later with his sister, Virginie. Over the years, his designs have been influenced by Adolph Loos for his “exactness,” Dorothy Draper for her “theatrical” flair, Renzo Mongiardino for his “collector’s spirit,” and Peter Marino for his “couture-style luxury.”
Deniot’s interior architecture work can be found all over Paris as well as in New Delhi, Dubai and Istanbul. His work also appears stateside in Chicago, West Hollywood, New York City and Aspen. Instead of limiting his designs to one specific period, Deniot prefers to mix styles from different eras. His work has been described as “undeniably French,” but he likes how American influences help to soften the rigid presence of French architecture.
Since designing doesn’t keep him busy enough, Deniot also has a line of custom furnishings that include seating, dining tables, chests of drawers, lighting and more.
