This Paris loft has a 20th-century modernist design that features the most stunning vintage furniture.
Specialized in top-drawer 20th-century modernist design, Florence Lopez is a Paris antiquarian that has created one of the most beautiful interior designs that represents her background in fine art. This eclectic paris loft that you’ll see belongs to the model Natacha Senechal and her family, who after visiting the designer’s atelier, wanted to gather an eclectic mix of vintage furniture for her own place.
Come with us on this tour!
Starting in the living room, one of the main features of the decor of this wonderful loft is, without doubt, the fireplace that was painted the same color as the walls. This was inspired in a Cubist mantel of one of Lopez’s showrooms. The armchair is a forties Gio Ponti newly upholstered in a woven wool from Kvadrat in a stunning lighter blue that contrasts perfectly with the dark walls.
A skylit corner of the rooms boasts a stained pine library desk, two sixties Italian armchairs, and a tree, adding a natural element that keeps the space fresh and bright. The two mid-century inspired lighting pieces on both the sideboard and side table on the corner give a new identity to the room.
Lopez has also created an homage to Albers with the art on the wall, the geometric focused furniture pieces, as well as the decorative pillows. She describes his work as “intemporal and fluid” and has told Remodelista that the two murals “create a mirror effect—difficult to get across in photos but they make the space feel bigger, even endless like you could see your hand disappear inside these perspective paintings.” Edward Wormley sofa mixed with the set of fifties freeform coffee tables provide a mid-century feeling to the space that is undeniably charming.
On the dining room, the fifties swing arm sconce by French architect-designer Pierre Guariche create a contemporary feeling, alongside two-toned Arne Norell sideboard that was one of the first prized purchases for the loft. We can’t get enough of the mid-century influences of these incredible furniture pieces.
A bar opens the living area to the kitchen, where we can found custom cabinets and vintage bar stools with a rustic and industrial design.

In the two-toned master bedroom, Lopez added a trompe-l’oeil homage to Ben Nicholson, an articulated lamp, and wall sconces by Meljac of Paris, that are a wow factor as soon as you set your eyes upon it.
All in all, this Paris loft represents the perfect combination of vintage furniture and mid-century lighting, creating, therefore, a space with a unique design that marries everything that is artsy, sophisticated and refined.
