A modern vision for Pierre Yovanovitch
The interior designer Pierre Yovanovitch has given a new look to the interior of a private house in London and, in the same spirit, an apartment in Paris. Adept at achieving luxury without ostentation, he turned to Féau Boiseries to design oases of contemporaneity. Fine examples of the interplay between contemporary design and custom-made boiseries, in London’s upmarket Chelsea neighborhood and Paris’s 7th arrondissement.
Émile-Jacques Ruhlmann’s masterpiece revisited
The custom-made boiseries were produced in oak, copying the original Art Deco ornamentation : Ruhlmann’s elegant motif of three rows of dentils in the doorframes [pict. 1], the vertical wave motif of the cornices, carved with a gouge [pict. 2 & 3], however, the female masks that punctuated the period decor have been replaced by soberly carved scarabs [pict. 4].
The choice of Art Deco

Lord Rothermere’s Ruhlmann boiseries
Pierre Yovanovitch found inspiration in a decor from the Féau firm’s archives for the salon walls : an Art Deco masterpiece designed by Ruhlmann in 1925 for Lord Rothermere’s apartment on the Champs-Élysées.
