First off on this amazing tour, we present you with Rapin’s collection of Ruelland French ceramics from the 1960s. On the wall hang six drawings by Jean Cocteau, also from the 1960s. The little tables in silvered wood are Austrian from the end of the 19th century and the vases are silver and hardstones by Kam Tin.
All of the decoration is original to the apartment. On the walls of a bathroom are marble mosaics, and the stained-glass window is early 20th-century. The walls are lacquered paint and the chandelier is 19th-century, found at the flea market in the South of France, L’ Isle Sur la Sorgue. The coatrack is in gilded iron, circa 1950, by Italian designer Pier Luigi Colli.
In the living room, there’s a Cloud Table by Kam Tin and the sofa and armchairs are from 1930 by an Italian architect and designer of Danish origin, Guglielmo Ulrich. The palm trees are in bronze patinated brass and the little side tables are by French designer André Sornay from the 1940s. The Murano glass lamp is also from the 1940s, while the plaster light is from the 1960s.
The opaline glass lantern in the entrance hall is Murano from the 1950s. The standing lamp is called Triennale by Angelo Lelli for Arredoluce.
