Conjure up a virtual home that serves as a by-appointment office and showroom. The result is simply amazing and that’s why today Home Decor Ideas blog will present you the interior design of the office and showroom of this French artist. Please enjoy and get inspired!
“It’s an exploration of what I can do with the elegant proportions of salons with dix-huitième-siècle boiseries,” he says about this project, in an accent he laughingly calls “pure Maurice Chevalier.” And, as the thrillingly dapper designer points out—to his fans’ satisfaction—everything is for sale, from cushions to chandeliers.
Darré’s professional premises occupy a handful of high-ceilinged rooms on the third floor of 13 Rue Royale, a limestone mansion that was constructed in the 18th century by architect Louis Le Tellier. To Darré’s delight, the building is just a few grand doors up from another Le Tellier building that once housed the legendary Jansen design studio. “My desk is Jansen,” he proudly says of the vintage metal writing table standing center stage in the silver office.
Darré is so pleased with the effervescent mise-en-scène that he’ll be hosting everything from lunches to cocktail parties there, inviting painters, designers, actors, writers, and the like, in the manner of a mod Proustian salon.

As you can understand, most of his projects are very extravagant and they make you feel like you are inside a fantasy world. The result is always different from everything else.
The contrast between the black walls and the bed sheets is simply stunning. Once again it seems a room taken from a fantasy world, a fairy tale.
