Jean-Louis Deniot is an Interior Designer with a capital I and a capital D. He is so on top of his game it is impossible to look past his work. His work, which we have featured before, does not scream traditional, nor modern, nor classic but rather is screams style and luxury and it is these two words that define the scale and type of project Deniot is famed for producing.
This duplex-penthouse in the Chelsea arts district of New York could be considered a signature of his work – all the right elements are there: show stopping design classics, custom made pieces, stunning art, contemporary furniture and texture upon texture.
The images really do speak for themselves but I will say that for me it is the interplay between texture, surface and pattern that draws me to Deniot’s work more than any other. There is a quiet confidence in the way in which he layers his interiors to ensure that no one element stands out anymore that it should and that the eye is constantly drawn around the space without getting caught on anything in particular. Making a room readable in this sense time and again is no mean feat and is it what makes Deniot so sought after and one of today’s design stars.
