The Living Room

The living room is dominated by a curved sofa in massive oak
 that was designed
 by Pierre Yovanovitch, manufactured by Pierre-Eloi Bris, and covered in linen-and-wool fabric by Ateliers Charles Jouffre. Ceramic coffee tables, designed by Yovanovitch and made by ceramist Armelle Benoit, sit across from a marble fireplace in imperial gray.
