I use the word maximalism to describe this stunning apartment by Mis’en scène 40 for a few different reasons. The sheer volume of pieces in these rooms from floor to ceiling sings maximalism. This is not a bad thing but more of a personal taste. My personal den is an example of the “layers upon layers” of design. Mostly do to my collecting habits. These space are like those books where you have to find certain objects in the room that are almost hidden or disguised. From the translation from French I gathered that Philippe Thelin & Thierry Gonzal started out as art and design dealers and then started focusing on interiors. I believe that this is their personal home? I could be wrong (google’s fault).
