Nothing says summer in the city more than a colorful array of beach chairs in a small Parisian flat.
Which is why we're sourcing the key elements of designers Isabelle Gilles and Yann Poncelet's sunny apartment; we've long admired the interiors' mix of bright orange deck chairs and midcentury vintage (see A Parisian Apartment with a Summery Spirit) as well as Gilles and Poncelet's line of furniture at Colonel. Recreate the summer-in-Paris look with the following elements:
Above: High (Noguchi) meets low (cheap beach chairs) in the entryway.
