Famous Homes: Coco Chanel

Its name means luxury and is one of the architects of change in fashion (male and female) of the 20th century. Gabrielle Bonheur “CoCo” Chanel It has always been a controversial figure, but admittedly you everything that brings your brand becomes a reference.

Today I want to join that me and wondeful to give a tour of his apartment in the 31, Rue Cambon Paris, just above the boutique Chanel, where the designer worked for much of his life. Today, this House is used to press and wheels to make fashion passes since it keeps the classical style who always defended Coco Chanel.

The first thing that draws the attention of the House is that not only has doors, Since the designer was obsessed with eliminating them and put a few screens in front of the lintels to keep privacy. The second thing that draws attention, as you can see in the pictures, is the huge amount of mirrors you populate the House.

The luxury not go unnoticed in this apartment in which the designer never actually slept (all known had a suite at the Ritz where he lived), and this can be seen in the Baroque tables, the lamps filled with crystals and sculptures that are everywhere. Coco Chanel was a great smoker, and one of the decorative elements that recur more, along with the aforementioned mirrors, are the ashtrays everywhere, many of them gifts from her many lovers.

In his apartment in the Rue Cambon, Coco Chanel worked, sewed and arranging dresses for the models, but it also had an area of social gathering where to chat with visitors and customers. A big sofa invited us to rest and was complemented perfectly with a pair of armchairs upholstered with similar fabrics that remind us of the classic Chanel.

On these lines, it is one of my favorite corners of the House, which ones have been used Japanese cabinets on the walls. The dark wood contrasts beautifully with lighter furniture and drawings that exist on her speak to us of the classic but also of the exotic. The ceiling lamp reminds us that the apartment is located in the heart of Paris, but fans take us to the far East.

The truth is that this apartment I liked a lot and wouldn’t know if frame it “places to work” or “famous houses”, although I suppose that it is a mixture between the two. Although East So classic Chanel It is not my style, I believe that I would not mind working in a place as elegant, and you?
