The side table is by India Madhavi, and the malachite stone sculpture is by Objet de Curiosité.
One of Swank’s favorite pieces—a marble-top desk designed by Huynh for Henryot & Cie—commands a corner of the living room. The Africa chair is from Alberto Pinto, the lamp was designed by Objet de Curiosité Paris, and the custom velvet curtains are by Olfa Guemidh for Home Collections.
The dramatic dining room, its walls washed in a custom-blended paint that nods to the color of the sea, seems to change its hue throughout the day. Oyster-shaped lamps in Carrara and Nero Marquina marble by Ginger & Jagger illuminate the space, and the blue-lacquered legs of the custom Henryot & Cie chairs underline the room’s aquatic bent. The porcelain plates by Seletti, and the coral and sea urchin embellishments are by Objet de Curiosité.
Huynh completely redesigned the bath, lining it in white Carrara marble. Gypsum lights hew to the monochromatic theme. The wooden towel holder is by Henryot & Cie.
A headboard from Henryot & Cie, modeled on the company's designs for the Ritz Hotel in Paris, and custom bed linens of Egyptian satin by Magbé Camara wash the bedroom in simple luxury. The standing lamp was designed by Objet de Curiosité, and the custom grosgrain-trimmed curtains are by Olfa Guemidh for Home Collections.
A richly upholstered velvet sofa Dominique Roitel for Henryot & Cie adds a vibrant burst in a black-and-white corner of the living room. The side table is by Ginger & Jagger, and the photograph is by François Rousseau.
With its soaring ceilings, polished herringbone floors, intricate moldings, marble fireplaces, and large windows, the apartment has the beautiful bones and soft filtered light that herald the European capital’s best spaces. The daybed was designed by Axel Huynh for Henryot & Cie, the lamp is by Serge Mouille, and the marble side table is by Pierre Gonalons. The brass side table is by Objet de Curiosité, the rug is by Codimat Collection, and the custom velvet curtains by Olfa Guemidh for Home Collections.
While the original plan was for Huynh to design a piece of furniture for the home, his role quickly morphed into that of an interior designer. “He has this joie de vivre that I instantly gravitated toward,” says Swank, who met Huynh at Art Basel, in Miami.
