Alexandra Magne brought her characteristic mix of styles, materials, and finds from Parisian markets to Duplex Republique, a 1,200-square-foot apartment within an old building in Paris’s 10th district. The end result is a harmonious mix of industrial and Scandinavian styles.
The main living area features a sculptural staircase, made from a thin sheet of metal. Two mustard armchairs that Magne found in a market and their mis-matched black and white graphic throw pillows bring bold color and pattern into the room. She also mixed in a Berber rug and creased linen couches for texture.
Restored original wooden beams run across the ceiling of the partially-open second floor. They mix perfectly with industrial pieces in the lofted office space, including a desk that Magne discovered at a charity sale. It was originally used in an old post office building.
The two children’s rooms continue this eclectic style with an added layer of whimsy. The younger children’s bedroom is accented with a bright, peacock blue wall. It also includes a demure set of drawers that the designer spotted in a shop along the Seine. [Photography courtesy of Home Adore and am Alexandra Magne and information courtesy of Houzz]
