Inspiration and Ideas brings you an inside look into the IK Appartement, an interior design project by COCHET / PAÏS. The family-owned design studio created by Yannick Cochet and Gregory Païs has developed this amazing French apartment overlooking the port of Cannes.
Before COCHET / PAÏS‘s incredible work, this opulent French apartment was all set on just one floor, with a surface of 150m². The design project consisted of the elevation of the building, to create an additional floor, transforming this luxury residence into a 250m² duplex facing the port of Cannes. The construction, remodelling, and decoration were done over the course of 2 years.
The exquisite two-bedroom French apartment is fully decorated using furniture design by the world’s top luxury brands but uses neutral colours to bring a sense of soberness to the overall ambience. The ceilings are detailed and stand out with a set of ceilings lights and chandeliers, and all the furniture is geometric and placed strategically. All rooms are detailed with small pieces of art letting the furniture design stand out.
The design project has several pieces from top luxury brands such as a dining table by Fendi, a sofa design by Longhi and the chandelier featured in the dining room by Lasvi, but the pieces which truly stand out are from the Portuguese design brand, Boca do Lobo.
The Lapiaz center table completely steals the show on the incredible living room. The polished brass details and mirrored sides attribute this luxury design artwork an artic yet comfy and warm beauty. The Symphony Sideboard is the perfect complement to this French apartment, tying in with the gold details seen throughout the interior design project without overshadowing it. Definitely statement pieces that make the French apartment such an opulent design project.

Like all of Boca do Lobo’s designs, the Symphony is handmade by experienced craftsmen, each with different specialities, from metalwork to wood carving.

Through the brand’s vision, this luxury sideboard seeks to re-interpret classic elements through contemporary design and cutting-edge technology and has become an iconic piece within the Limited Edition Collection.
Lapiaz inspired this unique centre table. The french word is the name given to the typical karst formations produced by surface dissolution of limestone or dolomite rocks. It can also be caused by freezing and thawing in cold climates. This is how Lapiaz Centre Table emerged. Imagine a stone frozen and freshly cracked to show the entire world a rich, golden interior. The polished brass details and mirrored sides attribute this luxury design artwork an artic yet comfy and warm beauty.
