Paris Match: Henri Samuel & the Artists He Commissioned
It’s no surprise that Jacques Grange is such an amazing interior designer when you find out that he learned the ropes from legendary French designer Henri Samuel. The photos here of just one room in Samuel’s Paris apartment in a hotel particulier on rue Faubourg Saint-Honoré illustrate the way he perfectly combined antiques with modern pieces to create a unique new way of decorating. He commissioned furniture and lighting in the 1960’s and 70’s from artists such as César, Francois Arnal, Philippe Hiquily, Guy de Rougemont, and Diego Giacometti. It’s these relationships and the pieces they produced are the subject of a new exhibition Paris Match: Henri Samuel and the Artists He Commissioned 1968-1977 opening this week at Demisch Danant. Definitely add it to your must see list.
